For those interested in computer vision, the IEEE Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) conference is the place to be. Known as the premier computer vision conference, it draws thousands of attendees and papers submitted each year.
This year, Georgia Tech will present 18 papers from 33 different authors. The papers discuss advancements in areas including video analytics, data sets, and evaluation. School of Interactive Computing (IC) Assistant Professors Dhruv Batra and Devi Parikh and Professor James Rehg lead the pack with four accepted papers each.
Georgia Tech’s involvement continues outside of published research with several faculty members holding conference leadership positions or organizing workshops. IC Professor Frank Dellaert is the co-organizer of the 2019 SUMO Challenge Workshop: 360° Indoor Scene Understanding and Modeling, and Parikh and Batra are organizing two workshops, Visual Question Answering and Dialog and Habitat: Embodied Agents Challenge and Workshop.
“CVPR is the biggest conference in computer vision and arguably the most impactful conference in all of computing. ML@GT has one of the strongest computer vision groups in the country and it's exciting to show off our latest research. Our visibility at CVPR helps us recruit the best students and faculty,” said James Hays, IC associate professor and 2019 CVPR area chair.
CVPR will be held June 16 through 20 in Long Beach, Calif. at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center.
