Call for Participation


The Doctoral Consortium provides a unique opportunity for students, who are close to finishing or who have recently finished their doctorate degree, to interact with experienced researchers in computer vision. A senior member of the community will be assigned as a mentor for each student based on the student's preference or similarity of research interests. All students and mentors will attend a Doctoral Consortium event during the conference, giving the students an opportunity to discuss their ongoing research and career plans with their mentor. 


Students must be conducting research in computer vision and related areas, and be within 6 months (before or after) of defending their PhD thesis.

Submission Guidelines
