Please be aware that the Organising Committee may
suggest revisions.

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
their career.


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:

[visionlist] [CFP] – DLVC 2017 WS – Deep Learning for Visual Computing Winter School 2017

Dear Colleagues,

are organising the Deep Learning for Visual Computing
 School 2017 (DLVC 2017
​ WS​
) during
​19-23 December 2017
​coordinated by the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India ​
at the
​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
​ WS​
Challenge on the last day of the program.

​Topics to be covered include:

* Deep learning with neural networks

* Autoencoders

* 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
​5 November 2017.

[visionlist] Postdoc Position in Cognitive Neuroscience at UMass Amherst

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:
http://ift.tt/2ywjvXN by
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.

[visionlist] Call for Tutorials: WACV 2018

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.


Important Dates


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.


Submission Instructions


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.
