Montreal-Toronto Computer Vision Workshop 2005
The 3D Vision lab
at Université de Montréal is pleased
to invite to Toronto-Montreal Vision Workshop 2005 the graduate students from the following universities:
- McGill University
- Université de Montréal
- University of Ottawa
- University of Toronto
- University of Waterloo
- York University
Much in the same spirit as the previous workshops ( 2004
are expecting students from these universities to gather and share
their recent results with each other, get to know other
graduate students working in Vision, meet the local Vision faculty,
and perhaps enjoy a tour of the city with friendly 'native' guides!
Participants can choose between:
- A short (20 min.) conference-style presentation of their recent
research. This could be from a recent conference paper, thesis work,
ongoing research, or even a practice talk for CVPR 2005. Please keep
in mind that we expect many such talks to take place, so the
time-limit will be strictly enforced.
- Present a poster. You can show
us a poster you presented or plan to present at a conference, or
simply put together specifically for the workshop.
- Give a demo. It is
always fun to see Vision software in action, so feel free to give us a
practical demonstration of your own (please
let us know in advance what you require to run your software).
Just drop by, and see what's new. You don't have to actually present
research, feel free to simply drop by, attend other student's
presentations, meet other Vision students, and get an overview of
what other people are working on.
The workshop will be held at the Society for Arts and Technology in
downtown Montréal. It is at walking distance from the
residences of UQAM. It is also a 25 minute bus ride away from the residences of Université de Montréal.
- A light breakfast will be offered on site to the participants every day just before the early morning talks. Cookies and coffee will also be offered during the morning and afternoon breaks.
- Participants are invited to stay for the Synthetik event Thursday right after the workshop.
- Wire and wireless Internet connections will be available on site, including a Linux PC.
- The event will probably be webcasted.
- The workshop will start Wednesday at 10 AM and end Friday at 1 PM.
- The detailed schedule will be available as soon as possible.
Poster and Demo:
- The authors of each poster will
do a 5 minute presentation at the
beginning of the poster session.
- Poster sessions and live demos
will be right after lunch, so that speakers have time to set
up their poster.
- Power outlets and network connections will be
available at most (if not all) poster sites.
- Speakers presenting live
demos will be provided with a table.
- If you need
extra equipment or special arrangements, please contact me.
- A locked storage room is available for the equipment used in the
- Presentations will last 20 minutes including the question period.
- A Windows laptop with PowerPoint and Acrobat Reader will be available
on site. Please send me your presentation before the workshop. This
will speed up transitions between speakers.

The Toronto-Montreal workshops started in the
