Submission Instructions

- Extended Abstracts: We encourage primarily female-identifying
(undergraduate and graduate) students, post-docs, and junior researchers in
all areas of computer vision to submit a short paper (2 pages excluding
references) describing new, previously, or concurrently published research
or work-in-progress.

- Full Length Papers: The workshop will offer the opportunity to publish
full length papers in the workshop proceedings (4-8 pages excluding
references). These papers should describe new work that has not been
previously published, accepted for publication, or submitted for review at
another venue during our review period. The accepted papers will appear in
the CVPR workshops proceedings and IEEE Xplore. These papers will also be
in the Computer Vision Foundation (CVF) open access archive.

- The reviewing process is single-blind.

- Authors of all accepted papers will be invited to present their work in a
poster session, and a few in an oral session.

- The presenter need not be the first author of a submission.

- While all presenters will identify primarily as female, all genders are
invited to attend the workshop .

- We encourage presenters of all genders to highlight the contribution of
the female authors, particularly the presenting author.

Submission page: WiCV @CVPR 2020 CMT

Paper template:  For both types of submissions please use the final CVPR
paper template

Resume: Resume submission is optional. Accepted posters and orals will be
selected solely based on the submission. If you choose to share your resume
with industry sponsors, you should upload it to CMT on the submission page.

Travel awards: If you wish to be considered for a travel grant, please mark
'yes' to the question 'Are you applying for a travel stipend?' when
submitting your paper on CMT. Those participants indicating ‘yes’ will
receive a follow-up email linking to the travel grant application form.
Travel Awards

Travel grants will be awarded to a select number of accepted papers.
Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee award grants to all accepted
papers. Final grant amounts will depend on the number of applications
received and will be announced after paper acceptance notifications. Last
year travel grants ranged from $200-$2000 depending on the location of the
grant recipient. The travel grants can be used for any travel expenses
incurred from attending the workshop, such as flights, hotel, and
conference registration. Note that the travel grant may not (and probably
will not) cover all your expenses. Travel grant recipients will be asked to
provide receipts for expenses prior to receiving their award. International
travel grant recipients will be required to submit additional information,
including entry visa information, in order to receive reimbursement. The
reimbursements will be sent shortly after the workshop.
