Call for Participation: CVPR 2022 Doctoral Consortium


The Doctoral Consortium provides a unique opportunity for students, who are close to finishing or who have recently finished their doctorate degree, to interact with experienced researchers in computer vision. A senior member of the community will be assigned as a mentor for each student based on the student's preference or similarity of research interests. All students and mentors will attend a Doctoral Consortium event during the conference (in-person, virtual or hybrid), giving the students an opportunity to discuss their ongoing research and career plans with their mentor. In addition, each student will present a poster, either describing their thesis research or a single recent paper, to the other participants and their mentors.


Students must be conducting research in computer vision and be within 6 months (before or after) of graduating with their doctoral degree.

Submission Guidelines

Students that meet the eligibility requirements should submit an application using a web form (to be made available in March). The applicant must submit the following as a single pdf file:

  1. The applicant's CV.
  2. A two-page research statement summarizing the applicant's research and progress to date.
  3. The title and author list of the poster that will be presented at the consortium, which may or may not be presented at CVPR as well.
  4. A signed note from their advisor confirming the date of graduation and stating his/her availability as a mentor.
  5. The first and last names and email addresses for 7 potential mentors, ranked from most to least preferred. Note that there is no mentor list provided; you simply have to identify researchers from industry or academia whose work is relevant to yours, or whose feedback you think would be particularly useful to you for a different reason. Do not list your own advisor as a mentor.

Incomplete applications will be rejected.

Review Process

If all applications cannot be supported, selection will be based on the above material and the student's graduation date. Institutional representation will be taken into account; it is unlikely that more than two students from the same institution will be invited.

Travel Awards

Selected students will receive travel reimbursements for part of their expenses. The amount is still to be determined. The awards will be in the form of a reimbursement check that you will receive after the conference and after you submit forms/receipts.


You need itemized receipts that show what exactly you paid for. Allowable expenses include:

  • airfare (Note: Save your boarding passes and include them.)
  • ground transportation (Note: If you want to drive your own car, you will be reimbursed for mileage at the federal rate; for cabs, you need to get a receipt.)
  • conference registration and extra page fees
  • hotel or AirBnB (Note: Don't use AirBnB if you can't get a formal receipt. Room service cannot be reimbursed.)
  • meals not provided by the conference (Note: Dish names should be included. Alcohol cannot be reimbursed.)

After the conference, if you are at a US-based institution:

  1. Scan your receipts, including any boarding passes you have, and put all of them in a single PDF named [firstname_lastname]_receipts.pdf
  2. Fill out a form W-9 (if you are a US citizen or "other U.S. person, including a resident alien individual") or W-8Ben (otherwise) and save it as [firstname_lastname]_form.pdf
  3. Make a spreadsheet with all of your expenses that you want to have reimbursed by the DC. Include each item (for which you also provide a receipt) as well as the total amount. Only include expenses up to the maximum given above in the Excel sheet. Name this [firstname_lastname]_table.[xls/xlsx/csv]
  4. Send these three appropriately named files to the contact email address below. If you do not follow this naming/file format, you won't receive your reimbursement.

After the conference, if you are at a non-US institution: Instructions will be provided separately.

Poster Format

Please refer to the general CVPR 2022 guidelines; the Doctoral Consortium will use the same format. During the actual event, if you are presenting in person, please use any available poster board in the designated Doctoral Consortium room. No poster numbers will be assigned.
