The Doctoral Consortium provides a unique opportunity for students, who are close to finishing or who have recently finished their doctorate degree, to interact with experienced researchers in computer vision. A senior member of the community will be assigned as a mentor for each student based on the student's preference or similarity of research interests. All students and mentors will attend a Doctoral Consortium meeting/luncheon, giving the students an opportunity to discuss their ongoing research and career plans with their mentor. In addition, each student will present a poster, either describing their thesis research or a single recent paper, to the other participants and their mentors.
Students must be conducting research in computer vision and be within 6 months (before or after) of graduating with their doctoral degree. Applicants must not have attended a doctoral consortium previously (at ICCV, ECCV or CVPR).
Students that meet the eligibility requirements should submit an application via CMT at https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/CVPRDC2018. The applicant must submit the following as a single pdf file or a zip/rar file including multiple PDFs.
Please ensure that all five pieces of information are included in the application. Incomplete applications will be rejected.
If all applications cannot be supported, selection will be based on the above material and the student's graduation date. Institutional representation will be taken into account; it is unlikely that more than two students from the same institution will be invited.
Selected students will receive travel reimbursements for part
of their expenses.
The amount is still to be determined.
The awards will be in the form of a reimbursement check
that you will receive after the conference and after you submit
You need itemized receipts that show what exactly you paid for. Allowable expenses include:
After the conference, if you are at a US-based institution:
After the conference, if you are at a non-US institution: Instructions will be provided separately.
Please refer to the general CVPR 2018 guidelines; the Doctoral Consortium will use the same format. During the actual event, please use any available poster board in the designated Doctoral Consortium room. No poster numbers will be assigned.
