Call for proposals

Proposals are solicited for short courses and tutorials to be organized in conjunction with the 11th European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV), which will be held in Heraklion, Greece from September 5 to September 11, 2010. Short courses and tutorials are usually half-day with the option of full day courses for wider scope themes and will be held at the same venue as the conference on September 5th, 2010. They should complement and enhance the scientific programme of ECCV by providing authoritative and comprehensive overviews of growing themes that are of sufficient relevance with respect to the state-of-the-art and the conference topics. Courses should primarily target graduate students and young researchers, thus having an educational character rather than just surveying existing techniques.
Proposals should be submitted in electronic form (plain text, PostScript, or PDF) by email to the tutorials organizer, Manolis Lourakis (lourakis at before April 15th, 2010. Decisions will be communicated to the proposers by June 1st, 2010.

Each proposal should include:

  • Title
  • Proposer's name, affiliation, address, email, and short bio-sketch
  • Names of lecturers and short bio-sketches
  • Course description in syllabus-like form
  • Justification of the usefulness of the course for the vision community
  • Relationship to previous short courses/tutorials
  • Relevant publications of the proposer(s) with respect to the topic
  • Desired course length (half day/full day) & estimated attendance
  • Special equipment requirements
  • Indication of whether PDF slides will be available for inclusion in a conference CD-ROM
  • Intention of setting up a course web page that will include slides

Review process

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their estimated benefit for the community and their fit within the tutorials program as a whole. Factors to be considered include: relevance, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half or full day format; past experience and qualifications of the instructors. Selection will also be based on the overall distribution of topics, expected attendance, and specialties of the intended audiences.


Courses and tutorials will be held at the same venue as ECCV, namely the Creta Maris Hotel. Courses and tutorials rooms will be available from 8am until 6pm each day. The timing of coffee breaks (one in the morning and one in the afternoon), will be coordinated among all tutorials.
The ECCV Organizing Committee will coordinate the production of a CD-ROM that will include the material of all tutorials. Printed material, if desired, will be the responsibility of individual tutorial organizers.
Budget: ECCV local arrangements will provide and pay for rooms, two coffee breaks per day and A/V equipment. All other activities with budget implications are the responsibility of tutorial organizers (e.g., meals, extra breaks, social functions, travel grants, etc).
As in previous years, tutorials registration will follow the passport system: ECCV attendees will register for tutorials through the ECCV conference registration form by paying a nominal fee. This means that tutorial organizers will normally not have to deal with registration or budget issues unless extra activities are planned.
