CVPR 2015 workshop, June 11th, Boston, MA, USA

Abstract submission is closed.

Computer vision has made tremendous progress in the recent years over a wide range of areas, including object recognition, object detection, image understanding, video analysis, 3D reconstruction, etc. It has also become one of the largest computer science research community.

However, despite the expansion of our field, the percentage of female faculty members and researchers both in the academia and in the industry is still relatively low. As a result, most female researchers working in computer vision feel isolated and don’t have a lot of opportunities to meet with other women. The half-day workshop on Women in Computer Vision is a gathering for both women and men working in computer vision. 

The goal is
  • Raise visibility of women in computer vision by presenting invited research talks by women who are role models in this field. 
  • Give opportunities to junior female students or researchers to present their work via a poster session and travel awards. 
  • Share experience and career advice for female students and professionals.

All undergraduates, graduate students, researchers and faculties who are interested in computer vision are encouraged to attend. Travel grants are available for female presenters who are students, post-docs and junior industry researchers.
