A total of 11 papers from Catalan universities and research centers have been accepted at this year’s Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), one of the most important conferences in the field of Computer Vision.

Thereby, researchers from different universities of Catalonia, including the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS), the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), the Open University of Catalonia (UOC), the University of Barcelona (UB), the Computer Vision Center (CVC) and the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), have presented their most cutting-edge work on Computer Vision, whether in oral or in poster presentations.

This fulfilling amount of presented papers highlights the great commitment of Catalonia to Computer Vision and the quality of its research.

The papers from Catalan institutions presented at CVPR 2019 are the following:
