ICVISP 2017 encourages and invites the community to contribute with proposals of Special Sessions, and half- or full-day Workshops and Tutorials to integrate the technical program of the conference.

Tutorials are professional development sessions. They should cover at least an entire 90-minutes session, and can be run by one or multiple tutors. The purpose of tutorials is to educate ICVISP 2017 conference participants about specific topics or to provide the background necessary to understand advances in relevant areas.

A tutorial should be of interest to an audience of ICVISP participants , and offer a high-level learning experience that has a significant positive impact on the professional development of the participants. Tutorials at ICVISP 2017 Conferences provide attendees with the opportunity to gain knowledge and insights into any of the areas related to the topics of the conference. ICVISP 2017 invites half-day or full-day tutorial proposals, which should provide clear and focused teaching material covering hot and emerging topics within the scope of theoretical and applied subjects and issues of Vision, Image and Signal Processing and related areas. Tutorial instructors will be listed in the Featured Speakers of ICVISP 2017.

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated by the Committee team, Roundtable sessions, and Tutorials. The track chairs will assign appropriate reviewers. The reviewers will NOT be blind to the names of the organizers of the tutorial.

Prospective tutorial organizers should include the following information in their proposals:

1. Tutorial title

2. Aim and Scope (up to 300 words), describing goals and outcomes of the tutorial

3. Outline of topics and respective expected duration (in minutes)

4. Intended length (half- or full-day)

5. Intended audience and assumed background knowledge

6. If any, personal computer and software requirements for attendees

7. Dissemination Activities(e.g. #hashtag of the event, mailing lists, etc.)

8. Contact details, bio of organizers


Workshops aim to foster active discussion on issues related to specific fields, emphasizing on the interaction between presenter and audience. Typical structure of a workshop will include a number of paper presentations and/or invited talks (without paper submission). If time allows, a final panel/roundtable is sometimes useful to wrap up the discussion from a more systematic perspective.

workshop organizers should include the following information in their proposals:

1. Title of the workshop

3. Aim and Scope (up to 300 words), describing technical issues the workshop will address

4. List of specific topics of interest 

5. Planned invited speakers (if any)
