CALL FOR PROPOSALS and PARTICIPATION
SHREC2015 – 3D Shape Retrieval Contest 2015
At Eurographics 2015 Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval, http://ift.tt/1rDFWVj
December 15 – Submission deadline for track proposals
The general objective of the 3D Shape Retrieval Contest is to evaluate the effectiveness of 3D-shape retrieval algorithms. SHREC’15 is the tenth edition of the contest. Like previous years, it is organized in conjunction with
the Eurographics 2015- Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval, where the results will be reviewed by the chairs of the workshop and included in the workshop proceedings.
Thanks to the efforts of previous track organizers, SHREC already provides many resources to compare and evaluate 3D retrieval methods. For this year’s contest, we aim to explore new and updated tracks. Therefore, the participants
are invited to have an active role in the organization of the event. This includes proposing track themes, building or acquiring a test collection, and deciding upon the queries, relevance assessment, and performance measures.
The participants of each track will collectively write a paper, which will be published in the proceedings of the Eurographics Workshop 3D Object Retrieval. At least one author per track must register for the workshop, and present
the results. We also cordially invite all participants of a track to register and attend the workshop.
The tracks organized in the past years have covered different aspects and tasks of 3D shape retrieval, for example: rigid or non-rigid models; partial (i.e. range scan) or complete models; sketch-based 3D retrieval; generic or
domain specific models (i.e. CAD, Biometrics, Architectural and Protein), and correspondence, robustness, stability, registration, classification, and machine learning.
Now, we solicit again proposals for tracks. You may opt for one of the above themes, or propose new ones. Track organizers are responsible for all aspects of organizing the track, such as: the task, the data collection (copyright
issues, etc.), the queries, the ground truth, the evaluation method, the procedural aspects, writing the final paper in collaboration with the contestants, and submitting it.
See http://ift.tt/1FE1Ate for examples of organizational aspects of previous tracks.
The following list is a step-by-step description of the activities:
1. Potential track organizers send their proposal to email@example.com, describing the envisioned task, collection, queries, ground truth, evaluation method, and expected number of participants.
2. Promising tracks and their organizers will be listed at the SHREC web page, the track organizers start working out the details.
3. Participants register for the tracks they want to participate in.
4. Each track is performed according to its own schedule.
5. The track organizers collect the results.
6. The track results are combined into a joint paper, to be included in the proceedings of the Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval,
7. The description of the tracks and their results are presented at the Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval (May 2-3, 2015), http://ift.tt/1rDFWVj

[visionlist] NIPS 2014 Workshop — Riemannian Geometry in Machine Learning, Statistics, and Computer VisionPosted: November 28, 2014
Apologize for multiple posting
abstract submission for the 6th International Conference on Spatial Cognition (ICSC 2015) is now open and participation is encouraged.
conference will take place on September 7-11, 2015, at Sapienza
University of Rome and will be devoted to “Space and Situated Cognition”, thus
exploring the links between the general topic of the conference and an
emergent paradigm of cognitive science. All space-related disciplines and
approaches (philosophical, psychological, computational, engineering,
neuroscientific, etc.) will be considered.
Deadline for abstract submission: January 30, 2015.
further information on ICSC 2015 and for instructions concerning abstract submission, please refer to
the attached “Call for Submissions” and/or to the conference website: www.icsc-rome.org .

VSAC 2015 – Announcement
The 3rd Visual Science of Art Conference (VSAC) will take place in Liverpool, U.K., on Sunday August 23th.
VSAC welcomes original research work from scientists and scholars with an interest in the relationship between perception and art. All abstracts will be peer reviewed.

Aesthetic Science: An Ecological Approach
Early registration deadline: April 7, 2015.
Please note that registration is in British Pound, and that payment is required before abstract submission. Registration opens on December 21st, and abstract submission opens on January 1st.
Latest information on the website: http://ift.tt/1FvymPj
To maximize the opportunities for artists and scientists to interact with each other we have organized a series of events. We have coordinated dates with local artists so that a week-long event in the city centre will take place that week, and artists are welcome to contact us so we can put them in touch with the curator.
A separate evening event will engage also people who attend ECVP (Tuesday August 25th, open to all). Many of the demo that we one can seen at scientific meetings have artistic value, and many of the works of art in galleries have an experimental angle. This evening in a large open space will try to put these two together, and add a social aspect to it.
Both artists and scientist should submit proposals to: email@example.com
Separate from VSAC but running in parallel on the Sunday August 23rd there are also two technical workshops. For more information visit the ECVP website.
With respect to art and creativity you are also welcome to enter the logo competition for ECVP. The winner will see their logo used for t-shirts and the cover of the abstract book.
Finally, following the success of the ECVP facebook page there is now also a VSAC faceboook page: http://ift.tt/1vTxfag
For any questions please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you in Liverpool in August!

Proposal Deadline: Friday 20 February 2015
Notification: Friday 6 March 2015
Camera-Ready Deadline: Friday 17 July 2015
Workshop Registration Deadline: Friday 7 August 2015
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 26th BMVC will be held at Swansea University Singleton Campus, 7th-10th September 2015. The University Singleton Campus is set in a rolling parkland overlooking the majestic sweep of Swansea Bay, the start of the famously dramatic Gower coastline comprised of twenty-one bays and coves. BMVC2015 is a high quality single-track conference, comprising oral presentations and poster sessions (with oral acceptance <10% in the last 6 years).
Workshop proposals to be held in conjunction with BMVC 2015 are solicited. Workshops will take place on the last afternoon of the conference on Thursday 10 September. The workshops are intended to be half-day events and to provide opportunities for in-depth discussions of focused topics, technical issues, or specific applications of computer vision and pattern recognition. Both established topics and new trends in related areas are welcomed.
The workshop organisers are responsible for soliciting papers, handling submissions, carrying out peer review, notifying authors, and collecting camera-ready papers within the specified deadlines. BMVC 2015 will provide meeting facilities, collect workshop registrations, and distribute electronic proceedings. Proposals will be relevance to BMVC and will be evaluated by the BMVC 2015 organising committee.
A workshop may contain both oral sessions and a short poster session. The overall length is restricted to a half day. Workshops will be made freely available to delegates that are registered to the main conference. Workshop presenters must register for the workshop event. Organisers may choose to invite speakers. The conference cannot provide financial support to invited speakers or the workshop organisers. One workshop registration fee can be waived for a workshop that has over 10 presenters.
Proposals should include the following information:
– Workshop title, and tentative call for papers for the workshop.
– Proposers' names, titles, affiliations, and primary contact email.
– Names and bios of any invited speakers and indication of whether they have agreed to speak.
– Proposed Workshop format.
– Description of relevance and viability.
– Topics that will be covered and rough program.
– Anticipated target audience as well as expected number of attendees, e.g. based on past events.
Proposals should be submitted by email to email@example.com by Friday 20 February 2015.
