The workshop is a half-day event with invited speakers, a panel discussion, poster/oral presentations, and a mentoring/networking dinner. The event brings together students, faculty, and research scientists for an opportunity to exchange ideas and connect over a mutual interest in computer vision. Attendees are invited to apply to present their work. While paper submission is open to those that identify as female, all genders are invited to attend the workshop.

- 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.

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 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.
WiCV is a CVPR workshop, so your registration for it is handled via the CVPR website. Make sure your CVPR registration includes workshops.
Authors of all accepted papers (extended abstracts or full papers) will present their work in a poster session. All posters should be installed in at most 10 minutes at the start of the poster session. The physical dimensions of the poster stands are 8 feet wide by 4 feet high. Poster presenters can optionally use the CVPR2020 poster template for more details on how to prepare their posters. You do not need to use this template, but please read the instructions carefully and prepare your posters accordingly. Check your Poster ID to find your poster board at the conference site.
A few accepted papers (extended abstracts or full papers) will be invited to give oral presentations. The presentations will each have a duration of 7.5 minutes (5 minute spotlight and 2.5 minute Q/A).
Invited talks: Invited speakers will give technical talks about their research in computer vision. The invited talks will each have a duration of 25 minutes (20 minute talk and 5 minute Q/A).
