The British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC) is one of the major
international conferences on computer vision and related areas. It is
organised by the British Machine Vision Association (BMVA). The 30th BMVC will
be held at the University of Cardiff (UK), 9th - 12th Sept 2019.

We are soliciting proposals for workshops to be held together with the 2019
British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC 2019).

Workshops will take place on the afternoon of 12th September 2019 (i.e.,
half-day), at Cardiff University at the main conference venue.

The purpose of workshops is to provide a comprehensive forum on topics that
will not be fully explored during the main conference as well as to
encourage in-depth discussion of technical and application issues.

For examples of past workshops see BMVC 2018 workshops, bmvc
2018.org/workshops.html, and details from all past conferences can be found
here: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.bmva.org_bmvc_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=xCa3HHi7lZvxVaR3hkMMhUdh6cA0G9acGvv_qgcXXQU&s=dmDE9xLWu5i42IMtzTQjmDFZ8NVDjC7kHDZ5XTxP6Mo&e=

We also welcome “Challenge Workshops” that aim to compare new and
established methods on common data sets.

BMVC 2019 organisers will collect workshop registrations, provide
facilities, and distribute electronic copies of the workshop proceedings.

There will be competition for workshop space, time, and topic coverage. To
enable the competitive selection process, proposals must be specific and
detailed in justifying relevance and viability. Proposers may be asked to
provide additional information, modify aspects of their proposals, or
combine their proposal with another one.

Also note that publication deadlines are very tight between the main
conference acceptance notification (24th June 2019) and the workshop
camera-ready deadline (14th July 2019), so proposers have to be ready to
undertake all the work related to soliciting and reviewing submissions and
collecting final contributions.

Proposals should be submitted by email to workshops at bmvc2019.org by 31st
March 2019.

Proposals should be in PDF format and include the following information:

- Workshop title.
- Proposers’ names, titles, affiliations, and primary contact email.
- Topics that will be covered.
- Background and experience that makes the proposers well suited for
organising the workshop.
- Rough program outline (estimated numbers of orals, posters, and invited
- Names and bios of any invited speakers and indication of whether they
have agreed to speak.
- Anticipated target audience as well as expected number of attendees.
- Description of relevance and viability.
- Description of how this proposal relates to previous workshops at
(be as specific as possible).
- Any special space or equipment requests.
