On July 24th, we celebrated CVC’s 15th Workshop on Computer Vision Trends and Challenges (CVCR&D2020), the annual half-day workshop in which PhD students at CVC present their current research, as well as their future projects and expectations. CVCR&D is the most important internal event at CVC and it becomes a moment for discussion and dialogue between senior researchers and students in order to find outcomes to current research. Due to this year’s COVID-19 pandemic, the workshop was held online for first time.
The workshop’s program comprised five different sessions with 5-minute oral presentations dedicated to different Computer Vision areas: (1) Image Processing and Appearance Analysis, (2) Multimodal Representation: Music, Handwritten Texts and Document Analysis, (3) Continual Learning, Activate Learning and Learning to Learn, (4) Autonomous Driving and Model Understanding and (5) Medical Image and Image Tools. The oral presentations were followed by a 15-minute discussion panel, mentored by different CVC senior researchers.
This year’s Organising Committee was formed by Dr. Bartlomiej Twardowski and Dr. Yaxing Wang and counted with the participation of 37 PhD students and 25 mentors.
