WORKSHOPS CALL FOR PROPOSALS

We are soliciting proposals for workshops to be held together with the 21st International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing (ICIAP 2021). The workshops will take place on September 13th  and 14th 2021, a day before the beginning of the main conference. The purpose of workshops is to provide a comprehensive forum on topics that will not be fully explored during the main conference and to encourage in-depth discussion of technical and application issues. The ICIAP 2021 organizers will collect workshop registrations, provide facilities, and distribute electronic copies of the workshop proceedings. Due to space and time limitations, as well as to encourage diversity of topic coverage, we will only be able to retain a limited number of proposals. Therefore, we encourage the workshop organizers to submit proposals that are specific and detailed in justifying relevance and viability.

When preparing a proposal please note that ICIAP 2021 author notification is on June 15th , 2021.

Proposals should be submitted in PDF format by email to workshop@iciap21.org by March 1st, 2021. The proposals should include the following information:
1. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
  • Workshop title.
  • Topics that will be covered, with descriptions of why they are relevant.
  • Description of how this proposal relates to previous workshops at ICIAP/ICPR/ECCV etc. (be as specific as possible).
3. LOGISTICS

  • Preference for half-day or full-day event.
  • Tentative program committee.
  • Please indicate one of the following options describing the nature of your event:
    • Workshop is primarily an invited speaker event
    • Workshop is primarily a peer reviewed paper event (orals / posters)
    • Workshop will have a roughly even split between invited speakers and peer reviewed papers
  • Please also indicate if you plan to run a competition with your workshop.
  • If relevant, please provide a paper review timeline.
  • If the workshop includes peer reviewed papers, will these papers be published in proceedings?
  • If posters are considered, how many are expected? Note that the conference may limit the number of posters based on available space.
  • Special space or equipment requests, if any.

2. ORGANIZERS AND SPEAKERS

Additional information on workshop organization:
