Call for Participation: CVPR 2013 Doctoral Consortium

Submissions due: April 8, 2013

The CVPR Doctoral Consortium will provide a unique opportunity to 
students who are close to finishing, or who have very recently finished, 
their doctorate degree, to interact with renowned and experienced 
researchers in the field, and discuss with them their ongoing research 
and career plans. One senior member of the community will be assigned as 
mentor for each student based on similarity of research interests. At 
the meeting, each student will present a poster either overviewing his 
or her thesis research or a single recent paper, which will be discussed 
with the mentors and other participants.

All Ph.D. students in computer vision and related areas who will 
graduate within the next 6 months, as well as those who have graduated 
in the past 6 months are eligible.

Submission Guidelines
Eligible students who would like to participate in the Doctoral 
Consortium and receive a travel grant should send an application to 
Philippos Mordohai at Philippos.Mordohai at stevens.edu including the 
following. Items 1-3 should be combined into a single pdf file.
1. a two-page cover letter summarizing the applicant's research and 
progress to date and also proposing names of potential mentors,
2. a CV including the expected graduation date,
3. the title and author list of the poster that will be presented at the 
consortium, which may or may not be presented at CVPR as well,
4. a note from their advisor confirming the date of graduation and 
stating his/her availability to participate as a mentor.

Review Process
If all applications cannot be supported, selection will be based on the 
above material and the student's graduation date. Priority will be given 
to students whose advisors commit to serving as volunteer mentors at the 
consortium. Institutional representation will be taken into account; it 
is unlikely that more than two students from the same institution will 
be invited.

Travel Awards
Airfare and registration fees for CVPR will be covered for the selected
