Tutorial proposals submission guidelines

ECCV 2012 Tutorials will address the state-of-the-art developments regarding all aspects of computer vision, and will be of interest to the entire computer vision community, from novices and graduate students to the most seasoned researchers, from people working in academia to industry professionals. The topic should be of sufficient relevance with respect to the state of the art and the course should provide a comprehensive overview of the topic, focusing on education rather than being just a survey of techniques. Proposals are solicited for tutorials of either a half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or full day (6 hours plus breaks).

Submissions should be sent to the Tutorial Chairs through email and should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract. ECCV 2012 Tutorial Proposals must be submitted by email to the Tutorial Chairs, by the deadline indicated.   The proposal should specify:

  • Tutorial contents (the whole submission must not exceed 3 A4 pages all inclusive):
    •  title and length
    • an abstract addressing the rationale for the tutorial: why is the proposal appropriate to ECCV, what is the intended audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced), and what do the organizers anticipate the participants will learn, explanations why the organizers think their proposed tutorial would be beneficial to the computer vision community and of high impact
    • an outline of the tutorial, along with descriptions of the course objectives and course materials
    • ‘series’ context (is the tutorial part of a series? Was it held before? If so, when/where)
    • special requirements (e.g., for demos; standard equipment will be data projection facilities only)
    • indicative breakdown of day
    • Additional material on line, e.g., videos,  is welcome if useful to clarify contents and lecturing techniques
  • Proposers and lecturers – for each: name, affiliation; short bio (max. 2 paragraphs) including a description of the expertise in the topic of the tutorial (no more than 250 words.)
  • Attendees: – expected number of participants.

ECCV 2012 Tutorial organizers are responsible of the scientific organization and advertising of the event and the definition of the Tutorial program. Logistic and financial aspects are instead handled by the ECCV 2012 organization.
