Due to the current SARS situation in Beijing, China and some other parts
of Asia, after careful discussion, we have decided to swap ICCV 2003 Beijing
with ICCV 2005 France. ICCV 2005 will be back to Beijing, while ICCV 2003
will be held in Nice, France.
Nice is a relaxed and historic Mediterranean seaside town, close to Monte
Carlo and the Italian border. It is a popular tourist destination
and easy to get to via the Nice - Cote d'Azur airport, which has good international
ICCV 2003 will be held at the Acropolis Conference Centre in Nice, on the
Cote d'Azur (Mediterranean coast) of France. The main conference will be
Monday 13th to Thursday 16th October 2003, with workshops and short courses
Saturday 11th - Sunday 12th and Friday 17th.
Withdrawls and cancellations
ICCV policy is that one of the ORIGINAL AUTHORS of each accepted paper
or poster MUST attend the conference in person to present the work. This
is a precondition for acceptance. We reserve the right to remove any paper
for which we have reason to believe that no author will attend.
We realize that the change of location may make it difficult or undesirable
for some authors to attend the conference, so we are offering the following
Authors who wish to withdraw their papers may do so, provided that
we receive their withdrawl notice AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, AND AT THE
LATEST BY SUNDAY 18TH MAY. This will allow us to remove the paper
from the database before the Area Chairs meeting on 21-22 May. After
this date, standard ICCV policy will apply: if your paper is
accepted you MUST register for and attend the conference.
If you wish to withdraw your paper, send an e-mail to
giving the paper number, full title and full authors, and stating
that you wish to withdraw it.
Note that we will also be looking into ways of providing a limited number
of travel grants for accepted authors (in particular, graduate students)
with insurmountable financial difficulties. Don't contact us yet - we will
invite applications for these grants after the paper acceptance decision.
All of the workshops originally planned for ICCV Beijing will be held on-site
in Nice, _except_:
- "Vision methods for graphics applications" (Hong Kong) and
"Video & image registration" (Taipei) have been cancelled;
- "Variational and level set methods" may be held off-site in
Antibes (15 km from Nice);
- "Recognition, analysis and tracking of faces and gestures"
and "Face recognition in video and still images" will merge to
form a single workshop called "Analysis and Modelling of Faces and
