The CVPR community is strongly committed to addressing issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) at our conference. Diversity has many dimensions, including gender, race, ethnicity, age, disabilities, religious belief, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and cultural background. There is no place for hatred and discrimination in the CVPR community or elsewhere.
For CVPR 2022, the DEI Chairs are working with other members of the organizing committee to help foster a more inclusive, diverse and equitable conference. Specifically, we will encourage the following:
- improve diversity and inclusion in workshop and tutorial organizers and invited speakers by including diversity, equity, and inclusivity as part of the evaluation criteria;
- encourage the submission of workshop and tutorial proposals that examine problems in equity, diversity and inclusion from a technical perspective;
- hold networking events and support affinity groups that are specifically aimed at building and nurturing networks to support communities that are currently not well represented at CVPR;
- support for students to attend CVPR from communities that do not traditionally attend through travel grants and waived registration fees.
We are now accepting applications from people who have not attended CVPR before. You can apply for a complimentary registration for in-person or online. HERE The deadline for applying is April 15th 11:59 PM CST.
If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback related to DEI efforts at CVPR 2022, or would like to get involved, please contact the DEI co-chairs (Shuran Song and Noah Snavely) by email at email@example.com.
CVPR 2022 is now accepting applications for travel grants. Allocation is based on a combination of need, contribution to the meeting, where you are traveling from, advisor support, and supporting communities that are underrepresented at CVPR. Decisions will be made on a rolling basis, so please apply soon, and no later than 5/13 at 11:59 CST.
