We are pleased to announce that the Eighth CVC Workshop on Computer Vision Trends and Challenges (CVCR&D2013) will be held at the Computer Vision Center on October 25th, 2013.

This year we want CVCR&D to be an exhibition of the research capabilities of CVC along with exposing different technological transfer projects.

We are following the same format of paper introduced last year: a summary of the research that has been done along with sketching future research lines. The submission will consist of an extended abstrac and it should include a summary of a current research topic and a representative image. The recommended length of the paper is 1 page (with maximum extension of 2 pages).  The paper submission is mandatory for all PhD students in CVC. The submission is also open for the rest of the research and technological transfer staff.

For those students that have just defended the PhD thesis, or that are going to present it before the end of the year, we propose them to make a graphical abstract of their thesis in poster format. The content of this poster should reflect the work done by the PhD student throughout all his/her thesis.


The program will be organized in a half-day workshop. It will comprise four different oral sessions dedicated to the several research topics related to computer vision. We believe this is a good chance for PhD students to share their work with the other members of CVC. Moreover, we will also have a track devoted to the presentation of technological transfers projects and demo sessions.

The paper submission is mandatory for all PhD students in CVC but this year, for those students that have just defended the PhD thesis, or that are going to present it before the end of the year, we propose to them to make a graphical abstract of their thesis in poster format.

Furthermore, the submission is open to (1) doctors that presented the Thesis during the period October 2012 - September 2013; (2) spin-offs of CVC, which could present their main research and applications; (3) Technological Transfer staff; and (4) rest of the researchers of CVC which may present novel ideas or challenges.


This year we will offer three different awards:

  • Best Poster Award;
  • Best Contribution to the Discussion;
  • Best Abstract and Presentation;

Paper Submission

Abstracts of maximum two pages have to be sent according to the instructions given below. We encourage the authors not to submit a summary of a recent conference paper but a short abstract summarizing their research activitiy. We want the proceedings of this workshop to be a catalogue of the capabilities and research lines of the CVC. 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.

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).
  • 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 all the files needed to compile (.tex, images, ...). The following author kit will be available to help you to format your paper:

  • Latex Template (Available here)

    Poster Template (Available here)

    Presentation Template (Available here)

The topics of interest cover, but are not limited to, the CVC research lines and development projects at large:

  • Medical Imaging
  • Color & Texture Analysis.
  • Object Recognition.
  • Image Sequence Evaluation.
  • Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.
  • Machine Vision.
  • Document Analysis.
  • Pattern Recognition.
  • Applications.

Submit your paper NOW!
