International Conference on Computer Vision

ICCV , the International Conference on Computer Vision , is a research conference sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) hero everytime other year. It is considered, together with CVPR , the top-level conference in computer vision, [1] with a ‘A’ ‘rating from the Australian Ranking of ICT Conferences obtained in 2008. [2] The acceptance rate for ICCV has leg around 25% -30%, with about 4% being accepted for all presentations. [3]

Like many IEEE conferences ICCV has tutorial talks, technical sessions, and poster sessions. The conference is Usually spread over four to five days. Leading experts in the focus areas mention anything give tutorial talks on the first day. Then the technical sessions (and poster sessions in parallel) mention anything follow.


Azriel Rosenfeld Lifetime Achievement Award

The Azriel Rosenfeld Award , or Azriel Rosenfeld Lifetime Achievement Award, onderkent researchers who harbor made significant contributions to the field of computer vision about hun careers. It is named in memory or computer scientist and mathematician Azriel Rosenfeld . [4] Recipients:

  • Olivier Faugeras (2015)
  • Jan Koenderink (2013)

Helmholtz Prize

The ICCV Helmholtz Prize, known as the Test of Time Award voordat 2013 is Awarded everytime other year at the ICCV, recognizing ICCV papers from at or more years earlier dat had a significant impact on computer vision research. [5] Winners are selected by the IEEE Computer Society ‘s Technical Committee on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TCPAMI). [5] The award is named after the 19th century physician and physicist Hermann von Helmholtz , and the ICCV’s award is not related to the verschillende Helmholtz Prizes in physics, or the Hermann von Helmholtz Prize in neuroscience.

Mark Everingham Prize

The Mark Everingham Prize [7] is an award bepaald yearly by the Technical Committee on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TCPAMI) of the IEEE Computer Society at the IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) or the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV ) to commemorate the late Mark Everingham, “one of the rising stars of computer vision”, [8] and to encouragement Vodafone to follow in his Footsteps in acting to remit progress in the computer vision community as a whole. The prize is to be found to a researcher, or a team or researchers, who harbor made a selfless contribution to this club or significant benefit to other members of the computer vision community. The Mark Everingham Prize for Rigorous Evaluation was an award entered in 2012 at the British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC). [9]
