Tutorials: Call for Proposals

Tutorials Chairs: Dima Damen and Judy Hoffman

  • Proposal Deadline: March 15th, 2023 (23:59 GMT)

  • Notification by: April 14th, 2023

Submission link: To be released

Overview

We solicit proposals for tutorials (short courses) to be held alongside the 2023 IEEE/CVF International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV 2023). Tutorials will take place on 2-3 October 2023 at the same venue as the main conference. We expect to hold in-person tutorials with hybrid (physical and on-line)  attendees depending on the pandemic situation at the time. We will try to accommodate tutorial presenters that face pandemic travel issues. 

An ICCV tutorial should aim to give a comprehensive review of a specific topic related to computer vision. A good tutorial should be educational rather than just a cursory survey of techniques. The topic should be of sufficient relevance and importance to attract significant interest from the computer vision community. Typical tutorial audiences consist of graduate students studying computer vision, but also include researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry. We invite proposals for both half-day and full-day tutorials, but anticipate that most tutorials will be allotted half a day, unless the topic is expected to attract widespread community attention or requires additional time.

For more information about typical ICCV tutorials and short courses, we encourage potential proposers to consult tutorial sites from recent years:

Proposals should be submitted by 15th of March 2023 (23:59 GM)

Proposals should be submitted using the form (link to be shared closer to time) which will include a document in PDF format of at most three pages (excluding biographies), and should include the following information:

  • Proposed title;
  • Proposers' names, titles, affiliations, emails, and brief bio sketches;
  • Preference for half- or full-day event (the latter requires a brief justification);
  • Course description with list of topics to be covered, along with a brief outline and important details;
  • Expected target audience, in terms of both composition and estimated number of attendees;
  • List of at most 10 citations and/or URLs to relevant publications and/or products by the organizers, and to other relevant related work;
  • A description of how this proposal relates to tutorials/short courses appearing at CVPR, ICCV, and ECCV within the last three years;
  • Links to a few previous recorded talks given by the presenters (if available);
  • Description of and/or links to any planned materials or resources to be distributed to attendees;
  • Finally, please indicate if you would be interested in offering your tutorial in parallel with the main conference program.

Evaluation criteria

1- Educational value, interest and relevance.
We encourage topics that have high educational value, are of broad interest to the community and can inspire further research activities. A good tutorial should include work beyond the organizers’ own work that is relevant to the topic of the tutorial.
The topics should not have been covered extensively in recent major computer vision conferences, unless there are strong reasons to continue educating the community on the topics (e.g., useful theory or method that is evolving/improving rapidly, or useful tool that is being adopted for a variety of purposes). For information on previous tutorial topics, consult tutorials from recent years:
We welcome proposals on emerging technical areas, societal and ethical implications of computer vision, and also topics that may not be seen as "traditional" in the ICCV community.

2- Social impact of the subject addressed by the tutorial and ethical considerations. Tutorial organizers are encouraged to address these in their proposal document.

3- Track record and expertise of organizers/speakers. The presenters/speakers should have representative publications on the proposed topics, and ideally some experience delivering similar educational experiences.

4- Diversity and inclusion in the organizing team, speakers, and authors of work highlighted by the tutorial. Proposals should specify how diversity and inclusion are being addressed. The ICCV Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and Tutorial Chairs are available to help, if needed, on this evaluation criterion.
