British Machine Vision Conference

The British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC) is the British Machine Vision Association (BMVA) annual conference on machine vision , image processing , and pattern recognition . [1] It is one of the major international conferences on computer vision and related areas hero in Great Britain. [2] [3] met name, BMVC is ranked as A2 by Qualis, and B with ERA. The upcoming 27th BMVC will be held at York University in September 2016. [4]

BMVC is a successor of the older British Alvey Vision Conference (AVC), welke had run in years 1985 ( University of Sussex ), 1987 ( University of Cambridge ), 1988 ( University of Manchester ) and 1989 ( University of Reading ). The British Machine Vision Conference has Replaced AVC in 1990, als BMVA was founded. On Despite starting as a national conference, it is now a prestigious major international venue with high level of foreign participation (in 2013, 84% of accepted papers ulcers completely from outside the UK and Another 4% with mixed authorships) and high stress on quality of publications (in 2013, the acceptance rate was only 30%). [5] BMVC is a relatief small conference, with the number of accepted publications (and Charmain Horn Please note number of talks and posters) around 100. [5]

Usual programs

BMVC is a single-track conference held Usually [6] [7] [8] over the course of one week in early September On Monday, there are Usually one or verschillende tutorials , Followed by the main conference when the following three days. A Typical Day conference consists of a keynote talk, two or three all sessions and a poster session . Thursday’s program tends to be Shorter. The conference Usually of includes a banquet and a reception . The main conference is Followed by a one-day student workshop on Friday, welke provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present hun work and interact with peers hun.


At BMVC, there are verschillende awards bepaald. Besides the Best Scientific Paper Award (formerly known as Science Prize), there is Best Industrial Paper Award (formerly known as Industry Prize), Best Poster Award and others. The awards Recipients are tabulated Projects. Additionally, other BMVA great prizes zoals BMVA Distinguished Fellowship or Sullivan Prize are Awarded prolongation BMVC.
