PSIVT 2017 Call for Workshops
The PSIVT 2017 Conference Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held November 20-24, 2017, immediately prior to the main conference. The aim of the workshop program is to provide a structured setting for
the discussion of specialized technical topics; the format of proposed workshops should be designed to promote an
active exchange of ideas between attendees.
All members of the Image and Video Technology community are invited to submit workshop proposals for review. We encourage several forms of workshops:
• Classical workshops that focus on a particular research area, including proposals for continuations of workshops that were held at previous general Image and Video Technology conferences (e.g., ACCV ,ICIP,ECCV...) or discipline specific conferences (e.g., ACMMM, ICCV, UAI, ICAPS,CVPR...).
• Workshops that focus on emerging topics and applications, or on open research questions and challenges.
• Cross-discipline workshops that foster exchange of ideas between groups that are unaware of each other's research.
• Relevant topics of interest to the Image and Video Technology community.
Requirements for Proposal Submission:
Prospective workshop organizers are invited to submit a plain text workshop proposal as a single PDF file by email to: PSIVT2017@163.com
Each proposal should contain the following information:
• Call for papers, containing a brief introduction and list of relevant topic areas.
• A preliminary workshop format and a proposed schedule for organizing the workshop, including desired length for the workshop (0.5-day, 1-day, 1.5-day or 2-day). Please indicate if you intend to have any activities other than contributed talks (e.g., invited talks, panels, or posters).
• A tentative list of PC members (including full names and affiliations).
• A list of related workshops held within the last few years, if any, and their relationship to the proposed workshop. If this workshop continues a workshop from a previous general or area-specific conference, please indicate that. If available, please provide the number of submitted/accepted papers and approximate attendance numbers for these workshops.
• The names, email addresses, and URLs of the organizing committee members. The committee should consist of two to four people knowledgeable in the area who do not all work at the same institution. Strong proposals include organizers who bring differing perspectives to the workshop topic and who are actively connected to the communities of potential participants.
• The primary contact for the organizing committee.
• Brief CVs of organizing committee members, including a list of key publications demonstrating scholarship in the field and a list of workshops previously arranged, if any.
The selection of workshops will be made by the Workshop Program Committee and will be based on multiple factors, including the scientific/technical interest of the topics in relation to the anticipated PSIVT audience, the quality of the proposal, the balance and distinctness of topics across all workshops, the history of past attendance for non-first-time workshops, and the experience of the organizing committee. We may request proposers addressing similar or overlapping content areas to merge their proposals.
• Proposal submission deadline: April 21, 2017
• Notification of Workshop Proposal Acceptance: May 5, 2017
• PSIVT-17 Workshops: November 20-24, 2017
