The British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC) is one of the major international conferences on computer vision and related areas. It is organised by the British Machine Vision Association (BMVA). The 30th BMVC will be held at the University of Cardiff, 9th—12th Sept 2019.

We are soliciting proposals for workshops to be held together with the 2019 British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC 2019).

Workshops will take place on the afternoon of 12th September 2019 (i.e., half-day), at Cardiff University at the main conference venue.

The purpose of workshops is to provide a comprehensive forum on topics that will not be fully explored during the main conference as well as to encourage in-depth discussion of technical and application issues.

For examples of past workshops see BMVC 2018 workshops, bmvc2018.org/workshops.html, and details from all past conferences can be found here: http://www.bmva.org/bmvc/

We also welcome “Challenge Workshops” that aim to compare new and established methods on common data sets.

BMVC 2019 organisers will collect workshop registrations, provide facilities, and distribute electronic copies of the workshop proceedings.

There will be competition for workshop space, time, and topic coverage. To enable the competitive selection process, proposals must be specific and detailed in justifying relevance and viability. Proposers may be asked to provide additional information, modify aspects of their proposals, or combine their proposal with another one.

Also note that publication deadlines are very tight between the main conference acceptance notification (24th June 2019) and the workshop camera-ready deadline (14th July 2019), so proposers have to be ready to undertake all the work related to soliciting and reviewing submissions and collecting final contributions.

Proposals should be submitted by email to workshops@bmvc2019.org by 17th February 2019 31st March 2019.

Proposals should be in PDF format and include the following information:

  • Workshop title.
  • Proposers’ names, titles, affiliations, and primary contact email.
  • Topics that will be covered.
  • Background and experience that makes the proposers well suited for organising the workshop.
  • Rough program outline (estimated numbers of orals, posters, and invited talks).
  • Names and bios of any invited speakers and indication of whether they have agreed to speak.
  • Anticipated target audience as well as expected number of attendees.
  • Description of relevance and viability.
  • Description of how this proposal relates to previous workshops at BMVC/CVPR/ICCV/ECCV (be as specific as possible).
  • Any special space or equipment requests.

For any questions, please contact the workshop chairs: workshops@bmvc2019.org.
