Call for Demos and Videos

Update: It has been confirmed that there will be a prize for the best demo/video/supplementary material. 3 August 2012.

BMVC 2012 offers the opportunity to showcase your research to the computer vision community. The following two types of contributions are both encouraged:

(1) Live demonstrations showing the effectiveness of computer vision methods. These are not limited to methods described in papers that will appear at BMVC 2012. Prospective demo participants should submit the application form via email to the Demo and Video Chair. Commercial products should be presented as part of the exhibits rather than demonstrations. Accepted demonstrations will be held concurrent with the poster sessions.

(2) Any precompiled videos showing the results of computer vision related research. Videos should not exceed three minutes in length or 100MB in size. Prospective video participants should submit an FTP/HTTP link to the video via email. Videos advertising commercial products are not appropriate. Accepted videos will be shown throughout the conference.

Please be advised that at least one of the authors of each demo/video must be registered for the conference. The conference also reserves the right to select demos and videos based on the degree of appropriateness for BMVC.

24 August 2012 Demo and video submission due
27 August 2012 Demo and video notification

For further information, please contact the Demo and Video Chair Dr. Fei Yan.
