Call for Symposia
The ECVP 2018 Organising Committee is now soliciting
proposals for symposia (http://ift.tt/2yAXx5Z). Symposia will
include 4-6 speakers and be one hour and a half in length. Please note that all
symposium speakers and symposium organisers will be required to register to the
The deadline for symposia proposal is November 30th,
2017. Proposals will be evaluated by the Organising Committee, with final
decisions made by January 15th 2018.
Please be aware that the Organising Committee may
Symposia proposals addressing overlapping subjects may
be requested to fuse.
Symposium Proponents should not make commitments to
speakers regarding financial support.
Symposium organisers will be in charge of evaluating
the abstracts submitted to their symposium.
We encourage symposium organisers to be attentive to
gender balance and to favour the inclusion of researchers at various stages of
Symposium organisers will play a key role in the
scientific quality of the meeting: we warmly thank you in advance for your
enthusiastic proposals and your commitment to the success of ECVP 2018.
Please submit the proposal using the Symposium
Proposal Form (http://ift.tt/2yAXx5Z)
, in which you will be asked to include the following information:
1) The name, affiliation and e-mail address of the
2) The proposed symposium title.
3) A list of the proposed speakers. Organisers can
take part in their own symposium.
4) A short (250 words) description of the symposium.
The ECVP 2018 Organising Committee
are organising the Deep Learning for Visual Computing
School 2017 (DLVC 2017
19-23 December 2017
coordinated by the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India
ITER Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan University, Bhubaneswar, India
. This event provides you with a unique opportunity to learn about the basics of deep learning for visual computing applications from practicing experts through
lectures and 1
hands-on tutorials. Also you stand the chance to win exciting prizes to accelerate your deep learning experience by participating in the DLVC 2017
Challenge on the last day of the program.
Topics to be covered include:
* Deep learning with neural networks
* Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN, LeNet, AlexNet, VGGNet, GoogLeNet)
* Residual connections in very deep networks (ResNets, DenseNets)
* Hardware acceleration of deep learning
* Transfer learning of Deep Networks
* Hand-on Tutorial on Intel Xeon Phi based HPC with
Torch and Python2
This is brought at affordable registration rates with support from
ITER-SOA University and
Intel. Details for the program and registration at: http://ift.tt/2yDdw3G
We encourage strong participation and deadline for the
limited number of
discounted rates early bird is

Applications are invited for an NIH BRAIN Initiative postdoctoral
position in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the
University of Massachusetts Amherst, under the supervision of Dr. Rosie
Cowell (http://ift.tt/2yxPC9q) and Dr. David Huber
(http://ift.tt/1BSiEKk). The funded research will develop and
validate a novel technique for mathematically inferring the operations
of neural subpopulations that contribute to the voxel response in fMRI
experiments. This research will use a combination of neurocomputational
modeling, fMRI experiments, and psychophysical experiments in the
domains of vision, attention, and perceptual learning.
The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology,
cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, neuroscience, or
statistical/mathematical modeling of behavioral or biological data.
Programming experience and excellent quantitative and statistical skills
are required. Initial appointment is for 2 years, renewable for up to
two more years, contingent upon excellent performance. Post-doctoral
research associates at the University of Massachusetts are unionized and
receive standard salary and benefits, depending on experience.
Please apply online at:
submitting a cover letter, CV, research statement, up to three sample
publications, and the contact details of three referees. Review of
applications will begin November 15, 2017 and continue until the
position is filled.
The University of Massachusetts Amherst is an Affirmative Action/Equal
Opportunity Employer of women, minorities, protected veterans, and
individuals with disabilities and encourages applications from these and
other protected group members.
Call for Tutorials
Proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with WACV 2018 are invited. Proposals must be for half-day tutorials. The tutorials will be held during the mornings of the main conference.
Tutorial proposal deadline: December 8, 2017
Acceptance notification: December 22, 2017
Goals and Organization
The ideal tutorial should attract a wide audience, and should be broad enough to provide a gentle introduction to the chosen research area, but should also cover the most important contributions
in depth. Tutorial materials should be made available by the presenters on their website prior to the conference. Tutorial registration will be handled centrally by the main conference.
Proposals should have at most three pages and clearly specify the following:
Tutorial title and presenters
Outline of topics to be presented, including estimates for time devoted to each topic
A list of publications in recent conferences, not necessarily by the presenters, demonstrating the importance and community interest in the topics to be presented
Presenter bios and web pages; list of publications in tutorial topics
Presentation requirements (multimedia, etc.)
Sample slides (optional)
Tutorial proposals should be submitted in PDF format to the email address below by the due date. Proposals will be evaluated by the tutorial chair and conference organizers, with an eye towards
selecting high-quality tutorials on a diverse set of topics that will inform and inspire the community.
