We are pleased to announce that the Sixth CVC Workshop on the Progress of Research and Development (CVCR&D2011) will be held at the Computer Vision Center on October 28th, 2011.

The CVC workshops provide an excellent opportunity for young researchers and project engineers to share new ideas and knowledge about the progress of their work, and also, to discuss about challenges and future perspectives. In addition, the workshop is the welcome event for new people that recently have joined the institute.

The topics of interest cover, but are not limited to, the CVC research lines and development projects at large:
  • Medical Imaging.
  • Robot Vision.
  • Color & Texture Analysis.
  • Object Recognition.
  • Image Sequence Evaluation.
  • Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.
  • Machine Vision.
  • Document Analysis.
  • Pattern Recognition.
  • Applications.


The program will be organized in a single-track half-day workshop. It will comprise several oral sessions dedicated to specific topics. For each session, the chairs will introduce the session's topic, and it will be followed by a number of short presentations addressed by paper authors. Each session will be concluded by a panel discussion. A poster session will take place during the coffee break and lunch.

Download Program


The submission of manuscripts is open to:
  • It is mandatory for each PhD student of the CVC. It is good practice in their training process. For some of them it will be as a dry-run of conference participation.
  • Development proposals (research groups, engineer teams and spin-off companies) are also very welcome. The idea is to participate with a presentation (or poster) describing their projects (the submission of papers is optional).


  • Best Presentation: To be selected among all the oral presentations of the workshop, voted by the area chairs.
  • Best Poster: To be selected among all the posters, voted by all the attendants.
  • Best Video Demo: Any student can submit a video of 2-3 minutes maximum describing his/her submitted paper. The video can contain any kind of media, i.e., the student explaining the work, a fancy animation of the technique, a demonstration of the proposed techniques working in real life. Take into account that the video demos will be played in loop in the flat screen next to the "Sala de Actes", which has no audio (in the case that you want to include subtitles). This category will be voted by all the attendants of the workshop.

Paper Submission

Papers of maximum four pages have to be sent according to the instructions given below. The full text of all contributed papers will be available in proceedings distributed at the workshop and edited by CVC Press. Papers must be written in English.

The submission deadline has been extended to 2nd October 2011.

We encourage the authors to follow the following guidelines regarding formatting:
  • Papers should be submitted using the LATEX templates provided (no Word or other text editors are allowed).
  • The length of the paper should be of 4 pages, though we will also accept manuscripts of 2-3 pages (not less).
  • Modifications on the paper' style (margins, font size, etc) are not allowed.
  • The format of the figures must be eps or ps.
Papers must be submitted in PDF camera-ready format enclosed in a zip file containing the .tex source code. The following author kit is available to help you to format your paper:
