W4PR: Women at ICPR - Lunchtime Celebration Workshop

A lunchtime celebration of the ICPR's female researchers to be held in conjunction with the

25th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR 2020)
Milan, Italy
January 10, 2021

The first Women at ICPR workshop (W4PR) will celebrate women's contributions to the IAPR. It aims to foster a culture embracing inclusiveness and diversity values within IAPR, by creating an opportunity for young and senior women scientists to interact and connect with each other. This workshop builds upon past social events (coffee break and lunch) for women organized at ICPR 2016 (Cancun) and ICPR 2018 (Beijing). As well as other activities, the workshop will include spotlight orals and posters based on the top-ranked papers submitted to the main ICPR conference by female authors/co-authors.

Draft Program

The event will occur during lunchtime (food will be provided) on Sunday January 10. The workshop schedule is still in construction, but will be something like:

Submission Information

There is no direct submission process. If you are female, when your paper is submitted to the main conference, there is a question asking if you are are willing to showcase your work ALSO at the Women at ICPR workshop (as well as giving your normal presentation at the main conference). If you agree to presenting at the workshop, and if your paper has a high review rating, then you will be invited to present the highlights of your paper at the workshop. The presentation will be as either a short spotlight oral presentation or as a poster. Agreeing to participate (or not agreeing to participate) will not affect the decision about presenting your paper in the main conference.
