This workshop aims to bring together the computer vision for animals community to present and discuss positions, methods and applications addressing key challenges in this emerging field. Discussions at the workshop will seek to understand challenges and identify opportunities and research directions for academia, industry and government from diverse perspectives, such as animal farming, wildlife study and machine vision with pattern recognition.
The workshop will consist of two keynote talks from agriculture and machine vision, oral presentations and posters. Generous time for Q+A and discussions will be given. The motivation is to stimulate in-depth discussions on this relatively new, emerging trend of computer vision research.
Authors are invited to submit 4-6 page, high-quality papers on positions, methods, applications, and work in progress addressing (but not limited to) the challenges stated below for machine vision of animals and their behaviour. Each paper will be reviewed by three reviewers in a double-blind process. Accepted papers will be published in electronic proceedings with DOI indexing, distributed by the BMVC.
The call for papers is available in text format, in case you want to email it to someone.
|Submission deadline:||Friday 10 July 2015 (11.59PM, Pacific Daylight Time)|
|Author notification:||Friday 31 July 2015|
|Author registration and attendee early registration||Friday 7 August 2015|
|MVAB workshop||Thursday PM 10 September 2015|
Workshop papers have a minimum of 4 pages and maximum of 6 pages (excluding references). Papers should follow the same formatting style as a BMVC conference paper, for double-blind review. The appropriate typesetting kit (LaTeX or Word) can be downloaded from BMVC's Paper Submission page.
Please note that, for the workshop, we do not require a one-page abstract.
Papers should be submitted at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mvab2015
Oral presentations correspond to 20-minute slots within the workshop's programme. Slide presentations should not exceed 15 minutes and allow for a 5-minute discussion.
Poster presentations will run during the coffee break. A space approximately 3-foot wide by 4-foot tall will be provided for each poster. This is ideal for an A0 portrait poster, but you are free to choose the size and orientation of your poster.
Registration options are explained in BMVC's Registration page. Registration and payment can be done online by following the link at the bottom of that page. If you're registering as a presenting author, please read also the information in BMVC's Author Registration page. Note that each workshop paper must have at least one author registered at the workshop registration rate by Friday 7 August.
The coffee break and poster session is located in the Taliesin Annexe, which is just a few minutes walk from the Faraday building. The location is available from here (building 31) and here (last Google map).
Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /var/www/html/mvab2015/older.php on line 141
