Call for Tutorial Proposals

Submission Deadline: September 1, 2020.
Notification by: September 8, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ACCV2020 will be held as a completely online conference on the planned dates, Nov 30th to Dec 4th, 2020. The organizing committee is committed to taking this opportunity to make ACCV2020 a widely visible open conference. Your contributions and participation will be key to its success!

We solicit proposals for tutorials to be held together with the 2020 Asian Conference on Computer Vision (ACCV 2020). The tutorials will take place on December 3rd and 4th after the main conference. ACCV tutorials aim to provide a comprehensive overview of specific topics in computer vision. The topic should be of sufficient relevance with respect to the state-of-the-art and the course should be educational rather than a cursory survey of techniques. 

Regular courses will have a half-day duration (3-4 hours). We also invite proposals for full-day courses (5-7 hours), provided that the topic merits the additional time and can be anticipated to generate sufficient interest from our community. Brief tutorials (1.5-2 hours) are also welcome, which will have a seminar-like style and preferably address hot, yet less consolidated, topics. 


Proposals should be submitted by email to the Chairs either in PDF format (preferred) or plain-text by September 1, 2020. The tutorial description must not exceed 3 A4 pages (all inclusive). Proposals failing to comply with the guidelines will be desk rejected. All proposals must include, in this order, the following information:

  • Short course/tutorial title
  • Proposers’ names, titles, affiliations and primary contact email
  • Short bio for each organizer, including pointers to relevant publications and any prior
    tutorial/educational experience
  • Preference for brief, half-day or full-day event and indicative breakdown of day
    (brief tutorials will be preferably accommodated on the post-conference day)
  • Course description that includes topics that will be covered along with a short outline
  • Anticipated target audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) as well as expected number of attendees
  • Description of how this proposal relates to previous tutorials/short courses appearing at ACCV and CVPR/ICCV/ECCV in the previous three years.
  • Planned materials (if any) to be distributed to attendees

After acceptance, tutorials will be required to prepare their websites, separate from the ACCV 2020 webpage. Accepted tutorials should provide their program material using a conference googles-sheet for producing program/app information. All the tutorials should use slideslive for the presentation, the related material must be uploaded by October 31, 2020
