CVPR 2020 Workshops Call for Proposals

Workshops Chairs: Tali Dekel and Tal Hassner
Proposal Deadline: September 13th, 2019 [11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time]
Notification by: October 31st, 2019

We are soliciting proposals for workshops to be held together with the 2020 Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference (CVPR 2020). The workshops will take place on June 14, 15 and 19 at the same venue as the main conference. The purpose of workshops is to provide a comprehensive forum on topics that will not be fully explored during the main conference and to encourage in-depth discussion of technical and application issues. The CVPR 2020 organizers will collect workshop registrations, provide facilities, and distribute electronic copies of the workshop proceedings.

In the past few years, the number of workshop proposals has been increasing rapidly. Due to space and time limitations, as well as to encourage diversity of topic coverage, we will only be able to retain a limited number of proposals. Therefore, we encourage the workshop organizers to submit proposals that are specific and detailed in justifying relevance and viability.

When preparing a proposal please note that CVPR 2020 author notification is on Feb 23, 2020.

Proposals should be submitted in PDF format by email to by Friday, September 13th, 2019 [11.59pm Pacific Standard Time]. The proposals should include the following information:



  • Workshop title.

  • Topics that will be covered, with descriptions of why they are relevant.

  • Description of how this proposal relates to previous workshops at CVPR/ICCV/ECCV etc. (be as specific as possible).


  • Organizers' names, titles and affiliations, with one, potentially two, contact emails of reliably responsive people.

  • Background and experience that makes the proposers well suited for organizing the workshop, including brief bios.
