Call for Papers:
The British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC) is one of the major
international conferences on computer vision and related areas. It is
organised by the British Machine Vision Association (BMVA). The 31st BMVC
is planned to be held in Manchester, 7th—11th Sept 2020. Authors are
invited to submit full-length high-quality papers in image processing,
machine vision, and related areas for 2020 British Machine Vision
Conference. Submitted papers will be refereed on their originality,
presentation, empirical results, and quality of evaluation.

All papers will be reviewed doubly blind, normally by three members of our
international programme committee. Please note that BMVC is a single track
meeting with oral and poster presentations and will include three keynote
presentations and two tutorials.
Please Note: In keeping with conferences in the field (e.g. NeurIPS 2020:
and to cope with the increasing number of submissions, we ask that all
authors be prepared to review papers and make use of a compulsory abstract
submission deadline a week before the paper submission deadline. The CMT
submission site will ask authors to acknowledge this commitment and failure
to engage with the reviewing process might be grounds for rejection.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
Statistics and machine learning for vision Stereo, calibration, geometric
modelling and processing Face and gesture recognition Early and
biologically inspired vision Motion, flow and tracking Segmentation and
grouping Model-based vision Image processing techniques and methods
Texture, shape and colour Video analysis Document processing and
recognition Vision for quality assurance, medical diagnosis, etc. Vision
for visualisation, interaction, and graphics Object detection and
recognition Shape-from-X Video analysis for action and event recognition
Illumination and reflectance Deep learning for vision 3D computer vision
RGBD analysis

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published
and DOI indexed by BMVA. Past proceedings can be found online:

The abstract deadline is Thursday 23rd April 2020 and the paper submission
deadline is Thursday 30th April 2020 (both 23:59, Pacific Time).
Selected best papers are invited to a special issue of the International
Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV) for BMVC 2020 Best Papers.

Any queries to the Programme Chairs should be sent to -
bmvc-2020-pc at lists.bath.ac.uk

The BMVC 2020 Programme Chairs are:
Neill Campbell (University of Bath), Lourdes Agapito (University College
London), William Smith (University of York), Martin Fergie (University of
Manchester), Moi Hoon Yap (Manchester Metropolitan University), Oisin Mac
Aodha (University of Edinburgh)

COVID-19 Update:
Based on the latest information we have available, our expectation is that
BMVC will take place as a virtual conference this year, occurring at the
original dates: 7th - 11th September.

As detailed on the website FAQ, the plan is for the submission and review
process to proceed as normal. We are not intending to extend the deadline
so would like to remind everyone about the abstract deadline this Thursday
23rd April (23:59 PT) and the paper submission deadline the following week
(Thursday 30th April, 23:59 PT).

All papers will be reviewed as for a standard conference and no authors
will be disadvantaged due to any travel restrictions. We anticipate that
the entire conference will be virtual with remote presentations and

To simplify the delivery, we have taken the decision not to have workshops
this year. Workshop organisers might be interested in submitting a proposal
for a BMVA one-day meeting when the situation returns to normal.
