Women in Computer Vision
A half-day gathering for women in computer vision
23 August 2020
in conjunction with ECCV in Glasgow, UK
(Update: WiCV@ECCV 2020 will be hosted virtually)
Computer vision has become one of the largest computer science research communities. We have made tremendous progress in recent years over a wide range of areas, including object recognition, image understanding, video analysis, 3D reconstruction, etc.
However, despite the expansion of our field, the percentage of female faculty members and researchers both in academia and in industry is still relatively low. As a result, many female researchers working in computer vision may feel isolated and do not have a lot of opportunities to meet with other women.
The goals of this workshop are to:
Raise visibility of female computer vision researchers 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.
We invite you to join WiCV’s Slack workspace here where you can interact with other attendees of the workshop, ask questions from presenters and get in touch with organisers about any technical issues on the day. All announcements on the day will be made in the Slack group.
Oral and Poster Presentations
Poster presentations will be in dedicated gather.town spaces according to the poster session ID. We grouped the posters by topic so the interaction is easier for visitors and presenters with common research interest. Keep in mind that gather.town allows multiple interactions between participants at the same time, resembling a real poster session. You will also have a dedicated slack channel in case you want to continue the discussion after the workshop.
