ICCV 2007 - Call for proposals for Tutorial and Short Courses

ICCV 2007 - Call for proposals for Tutorial and Short Courses
DeadLine: 31/03/2007 (EXTENDED)
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The International Conference in Computer Vision is the premium 
conference in the domain of computer vision held every two years with 
approx 1000 participants. This year it is scheduled to take place at Rio 
de Janeiro between October 14-21, 2007. Short courses and tutorials will 
take place on October 14-15, 2007, at the same venue as ICCV, the 
Sofitel Rio de Janeiro, Brazil .

Short courses and tutorials are usually half-day with the option of full 
day courses for wider scope topics. They aim to address a specific topic 
in computer vision and are supposed to provide a comprehensive overview 
of the topic. The audience is mostly graduate students. The topic should 
be of sufficient relevance with respect to the state of the art and the 
course should rather be educating than just a survey of techniques.

The proposal should include:
1. Title
2. Proposer's name, address, email, and short bio-sketch
3. A course description in syllabus like form
4. Names of other lecturers and short bio-sketches
5. Relevant publications of the proposer(s) with respect to the topic
6. Length of course (half day/full day) &  estimated attendance
  7. Whether PDF slides will be available for inclusion in the CDROM
8. Whether there will be a web page about the short course including slides.

Proposals should be submitted in text form by email to the organizers, 
Professors Ioannis Kakadiaris ( and Nikos 
Paragios (
