ICCV 2011 - Call for demos

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Fri, 17/06/2011 - 12:16

Deadline: September 11, 2011

ICCV 2011 will host demonstrations. The purpose of demos is to give
researchers the opportunity to showcase live demonstrations of their
contributions. The demonstrations need not be limited only to papers
that have been presented at ICCV 2011. Researchers are encouraged to
demonstrate the effectiveness of methods described in papers presented
in the past conferences and in other venues, so long as they fall
within the broad context of ICCV. During the conference, the Demo
