Call for Papers

2nd Joint AVA / BMVA Meeting on Biological and Machine Vision.

(Incorporating the AVA Annual General Meeting)

 22nd May 2012

Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK

Invited Keynote Speakers:

Aude Oliva (MIT)

Mike Chantler (Heriot-Watt University)

Abstract submission are now open for this meeting. The study of biological and machine vision share much common history (eg Marr), and each discipline has benefited enormously from findings and techniques from the other. The aim of this meeting, organised jointly by the AVA (UK biological vision) and BMVA (UK computer vision) is to reignite conversations between these two fields.

We particularly encourage submissions that will be of cross-disciplinary interest to both biological and machine vision. Apart from a small number of invited speakers presentation will be in the form of posters so as to foster greater discussion.

Abstracts for should be no more than 250 words long. Two submission options are available depending on whether or not you wish the abstract to be published in the journal Perception. Abstracts submitted under the “Poster Perception” option should present original research. Abstracts presenting interesting cross-over, but not original work should be submitted under the “Poster not Perception” option. Authors may select this option if they prefer. Regardless of publication mode abstracts should be in a format suitable for Perception with inline citations giving authors, year, publication, volume, and page numbers or paper number. See http://www.perceptionweb.com/ecvp/ecvp11.pdf for examples.

Abstracts can be submitted starting from the bottom of the "call" page. 

It is expected that at least 1 author (normally the first) will attend the meeting. 

Registrations for this meeting are open. The registration page is here. The BMVA and AVA have different funding models and the BMVA are able to subsidise the registration fee for their member’s whereas the AVA is not.
