Doctoral Spotlight

This year we will have a new doctoral spotlight featured at CVPR. The deadline for accepting applications was April 13, 2009. This deadline has passed and CVPR is no longer accepting applications. Spotlight participants received travel grants thanks to the generous support of the National Science Foundation.

The idea is to highlight poster papers by students who are finishing their doctorate.  The spotlight will consist of short talks by the student authors, to be given during the main program.  The goal is to give more exposure to student authors who are near graduation, and to specifically highlight their work to the rest of the community, including potential employers.

DOCTORAL SPOTLIGHTS (see the program/schedule of presentations)

DOCTORAL SPOTLIGHT COMMITTEE (those who will give feedback to Presenters)


There are two criteria: (1) one or more authors must have recently graduated (or else should be very close to graduating) with a Ph.D., and (2) the paper must already have been accepted as a poster to CVPR 2009.
