Conference Planning Information
These pages attempt to describe the history and nature of
the main conferences run by the PAMI-TC for computer vision.
Conference Steering Committee
The PAMI TC Conference Steering Committee
is designed to maintain the historical knowledge of conferences
and to help future conference organizers. Its members are always willing
to answer questions, provide feedback, and help deal with problems that
The three fairly regular vision conferences organized by the PAMI TC
And a number of workshops which cluster around CVPR and ICCV.
- Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)
-- Every late June. North America.
- Internation Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) --
Every odd year (though some flexibility), usually in the fall
but when in North America it replaces CVPR in June.
- Workshop on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV) --
Every 2 years in the fall.
Conferences have been held
in a number of locations with various
attendence and paper totals. The history
page gives the general statistics for past meetings. If you have information
to fill in the gaps please send it.
Planning a Conference
Planning a conference
takes some time takes time and
Once the process starts, things happen
under the control of the committee and under the control of
a fixed calendar imposed by outside forces (IEEE-CS, the hotels, etc.).
These three pages discuss various aspects of the process.
- Planning a conference: What to
look at generally. Also see the descriptions of the individual
conferences and the general conference description.
- The Schedule of what
happens varies, but there are some external schedules
- Things happen according to a
general timeline. Starting as much as 2 years before, but really
picking up about 18 months before. Some of the deadlines for
ICCV are pushed back 1-2 months due to the international
nature and delays inherent in longer distances (even though
everything is networked, there are more delays).
- The Program Committee
has a lot of work to do.
- Questions that have arisen (not
necessarily frequently, but once a year is enough).
Running the Conference
A number of different web sites have been used. Yuan-Fang Wang created
a very nice web site with a number of scripts to manage the whole
mess. These were modified (and in some cases generalized) by
Keith Price for CVPR99. Consider using these -- you will not need
to enter any reviews or papers if everyone cooperates.
