CVPR Daily: Thursday
This is the last issue of
for this year. Thus, even though
is still in full swing, we would like to think for a moment about what we've
experienced here in Las Vegas.
Everyone agrees about the
exceptional level of the technical program
including the award-winning works:
1) Deep Residual Learning for Image Recognition, by Kaiming He, Xiangyu Zhang,
Shaoqing Ren and Jian Sun;
2) Sublabel-Accurate Relaxation of Nonconvex Energies, by Thomas Möllenhoff,
Emanuel Laude, Michael Moeller, Jan Lellmann and Daniel Cremers;
3) Structural-RNN: Deep Learning on Spatio-Temporal Graphs; by Ashesh Jain,
Amir R. Zamir, SilvioSavarese and Ashutosh Saxena.
Of course there are many other excellent papers featured at the conference.
Through hundreds of presentations, we have discovered the amazing talent of
many outstanding researchers. In its 4 first-ever issues, CVPR Daily has done
its best to uncover, at least partially, all this talent and expose the work of
more than 100 scientists
One of the goals of this magazine is to put some name and stories with the
many faces in the crowd. We deliberately chose to highlight the diversity of
people who are part of our research community, in particular introducing you
the many brilliant women at this year's CVPR
Finally, one word about CVPR's growth. We had 2800 attendees in 2015;
are at 3609 attendees this year
. That makes a year over year growth of nearly
30%. This exceptional progression enables us to look forward to the future of
our community with full confidence and enthusiasm.
We hope the last days of CVPR 2016 are fruitful for you. We believe this week
has created countless channels of communication and strengthened even
more the bonds of the
international computer vision community
wholeheartedly hope to see you all again at CVPR 2017!
