We solicit proposals for tutorials to be held at the 2020 IEEE/CVF Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR 2020).

Tutorials will take place on June 14, 15 and 19.

A CVPR tutorial should aim to give a comprehensive overview of a specific topic related to computer vision. A good tutorial should be educational rather than just a cursory survey of techniques. The topic should be of sufficient relevance and importance to attract significant interest from the CVPR community. Typical tutorial audiences consist of graduate students studying computer vision, but also include researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry. We invite proposals for both half-day and full-day tutorials, but anticipate that most tutorials will be allotted half a day, unless the topic is expected to attract widespread community attention or requires the additional time.

For more information about typical CVPR tutorials, we encourage potential proposers to consult tutorial sites from recent years:









Proposals should be submitted by December 2nd, 2019 [11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time].
Proposals should be in PDF format and should include the following information:

  • Proposed title;

  • Proposers' names, titles, affiliations, emails, and brief bio sketches;

  • Preference for half- or full-day event (the latter requires a brief justification);

  • Course description with list of topics to be covered, along with a brief outline and important details;

  • List of citations and/or URLs to relevant publications and/or products by the organizers, and to other relevant related work;

  • A description of how this proposal relates to tutorials/short courses appearing at CVPR, ICCV, and ECCV within the last three years;

  • Description of and/or links to any planned materials or resources to be distributed to attendees.

For any questions, please contact the tutorial chairs.
