FGVC2 workshop at CVPR 2013

2nd Workshop on Fine-Grained Visual Categorization (FGVC^2)
In Conjunction with CVPR 2013

Call for Abstracts/Posters
PDF Version: http://fgvc.org/FGVC2_CallForPosters.pdf

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers to
explore visual recognition across the continuum between basic level
categorization (object recognition) and identification of individuals (face
recognition, biometrics) within a category population.

Topics of interest include the following:
• Novel datasets and data collection strategies for fine-grained categorization
• Appropriate error metrics for fine-grained categorization
• Embedding human experts’ knowledge into computational models
• Fine-grained categorization with humans in the loop
• Transfer-learning from known to novel subcategories. Zero/one-shot recognition
• Domain-specific techniques that generalize to various other domains
• Attribute-based techniques for fine-grained categorization
• Using taxonomies to improve fine-grained categorization
• Part-sharing models for categorization/recognition
• Unsupervised subcategory discovery
• Learning of discriminative features for fine-grained categorization
• Multimodal (e.g. combined audio/video) techniques for fine-grained
• Fine-grained categorization systems deployed in practice

Abstract/Poster Submission:
We invite submission of 1.5-2 page extended abstracts (using the CVPR 2013
format) describing work in the domains suggested above or in closely-related
areas. Accepted submissions will be presented as posters at the workshop.
Authors may submit a draft of their poster as an optional third page. The
extended abstract and poster sketch should be submitted as a single PDF file
with no more than 3 pages. Reviewing of abstract submissions will be
double-blind. The purpose of this workshop is not as a venue for publication,
so much as a place to gather together those in the community working on or
interested in FGVC. Submissions of work which has been previously published,
including papers accepted to the main CVPR 2013 conference are allowed.

Abstract/Poster Submission Deadline: April 19, 2013
Notification of Acceptance: May 15, 2013
Workshop date: Friday, June 28, 2013

| **Dataset Challenge**: As a part of the FGVC workshop, we will also be |
| conducting a fine-grained recognition competition, similar to the PASCAL |
| VOC and ImageNet challenges. The challenge dataset and details will be |
| distributed shortly in a separate call for participation. |
