Call for Workshops

Proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with WACV 2015 are highly encouraged. WACV 2015 included three successful workshops with dozens of attendees each throughout the day.

The workshops will be held on March 10, 2016 during the day at the same venue as the main conference.Workshop registration and meals (breakfast, lunch, breaks) during the workshop day are included in the conference registration. All logistics will be managed by the conference. Workshop organizers are responsible for their technical programs.

Half-day and full-day workshop proposals are permitted.

Important Dates

  • Workshop proposal deadline: September 1, 2015
  • Acceptance notification: September 15, 2015
  • Workshop submissions due (suggested): December 15, 2015
  • Workshop author notification (suggested) January 20, 2016


The format, style, and content of accepted workshops are under the control of the workshop organizers and largely autonomous from the main conference. Each workshop day can be up to seven hours long, split into morning and afternoon sessions. Workshop organizers are expected to manage the workshop content, invite experts in the domain, specify the workshop format, be present to moderate, and maintain a website for the workshop. Workshop registration will be handled centrally by the main conference.

  • Workshop title and organizers
  • Topic
