Dear Friends,

Preparation for the 4rd EECVC conference is already in full swing!

We are actively working on the list of speakers; for now, 3 amazing speakers have confirmed their participation:

DR. MUBARAK SHAH(USA) – The UCF Trustee Chair Professor, The founding director of the Center for Research in Computer Visions at University of Central Florida (UCF);
DR. BOGDAN SAVCHYNSKYY(Germany) – Group leader at the Visual Learning Lab of Heidelberg University;
ADEL BIBI(Saudi Arabia) – Ph.D. candidate at KAUST, speaker at CVPR/ICCV/ECCV

The complete list of speakers and all topics will be announced by April 10, 2019.

This year we plan to have 2 days of the conference.

The 1st day will be set in our traditional format (deep practical talks), but AGENDA and FORMAT of the 2nd day will be kept in SECRET until the last week before the conference.

We can only disclose that on the 2nd day we plan to spend in a cool place right by the BLACK SEA having informal roundtable discussions about the future of CV/ML.

Also do not forget about our “The Event” right after the 1st day…. Hope it will be as cool as previous : =))

Are you intrigued? :=)

To confirm your participation, please fill in the registration form as soon as possible.

The number of entry tickets (they are still free, entrance is for CV/ML researchers and engineers ONLY) will be limited to 400 this year.

We expect participants from 15 countries of Europe, Asia, and North America.

We will be happy to answer any questions!

Sincerely,

Chief AfterParty Officer

Vitaly Goncharuk

Dear colleagues,

One year ago I decided that to support the growth of my child EECVC more “parents” were needed.

This way the conference would benefit from involved bright people by becoming more interesting and diverse in terms of topics and of ideas.

After the post “Lets turn EECVC into the leading technical conference in the field of CV / ML in Eastern and Central Europe” was published, about 20 people contacted me.

I am happy to announce that EECVC recently has received 2 more awesome parents and equal co-founders:

1. DMYTRO MISHKIN – Computer vision researcher at Czech Technical University in Prague. Co-founder of Ukrainian Research Group “Szkocka”. Dmytro strongly believes in Ukraine becoming one of the leaders in AI and does his best to make it happen.

2. VIKTOR SDOBNIKOV – Hands-on and managerial experience in commercial and R&D projects in the field of computer vision and patterns recognition, co-organizer of the master’s specialization “Mathematical Methods of Patterns Recognition and Computer Vision”, Institute of Physics and Technology, KPI. He is confident that EECVC makes growing Eastern European CV&ML community stronger”

I am sure that 3 of us will make the conference stronger and more interesting for CV/ML community – you will have a chance to experience it this year on the 6th and 7th of July :=)

p.s.

Registration is already open – feel free to register yourself (link). This year we have only 400 seats available (free, but only for CV/ML researcher and engineers).

Best Regards,

Chief AfterParty Officer,

Vitaliy Goncharuk

Dear colleagues,

in 2018, we conduct EECVC 2018 for the third time and it seems to me that we are able to create a conference with particular values and a community of 400+ people from 10 countries who really love it (+ summer and the sea in Odessa: =)).

For 2019 I have more global ambitions to turn EECVC into the leading technical conference in the field of CV / ML in Eastern and Central Europe by expanding its format.

This would mean that the conference days would provide plenty of opportunities for the best minds in the world to share their experiences, “infect” their colleagues with ideas … and just drink a glass of beer on the beach in the company of interesting people.

For this, from 2019 I would like to stop being the only owner of EECVC and invite co-founders, by creating an EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE.

I am looking for people, who could “drive” the conference to a new level together with me while preserving its unique characteristics (informality, participation only by the practitioners in CV / ML, minimum of bullshit and ”captains obvious”, free participation, participation by invitation, etc.).

To implement this idea, I will carefully select co-founders, from whom the long-term stable development (no transformation into a “conference for hiring and PR”) of EECVC will depend.

The main criteria:

– ability to “give” to the conference (contacts with international speakers, interesting guests, etc.) rather than “take” from it;

– long-term plans for personal development in the field of CV / ML;

– excellent business reputation in the community CV / ML;

– ability to dedicate to the organization of the conference about 100 hours per year and cover a part of organizational expenses.

If you want to participate in the organization and become a co-founder of EECVC 2.0, then write me privately – I will be glad to discuss this!

I am sure that we will be able to create an excellent “institutional” conference, recognized in the global community. For this, we have all the necessary components – the best people and …. the warm sea: =)

P.S. EECVC 2018 will be held in our usual format with amazing speakers.

Everything described in this letter does not apply to the 2018 conference.

Best regards,

Vitaly Goncharuk

Dear Friends,

We are glad to announce the second edition of Computer Vision Conference in Eastern Europe (EECVC) on the 14th of July 2017 in Odessa (Ukraine).

Last year we gathered more than 160 computer vision (CV) and machine learning (ML) engineers and very interesting speakers, who presented their practical results in CV.

The benefits of presenting in front of the EECVC audience are:

1. The maximum relevancy of the audience – only engineers with practical background in computer vision and machine learning.

2. EECVC is a nonprofit conference: chosen participants pay their own travel expenses, but join the event free of charge.

The conference does not have any public sponsors, hidden advertising, and so on.

3. All speakers’ presentations are of the practical nature; no self-advertising or Captain Obvious talks.

4. The informal style of the event, excellent communication, and of course after-party by the Black Sea!

The conference committee develops the EECVC to create a long-term community in CV / ML in Eastern Europe and improve the exchange of experience and knowledge between engineers in Eastern Europe, the United States, Western Europe, and those from other world centers of CV.

In 2017 we will be glad to see new speakers, who would like to present their practical results in CV field.

If you are interested in speaking at the EECVC, please fill in the form and we will contact you within 1-2 days.

Sincerely,\r\nVitaly Goncharuk and the EECVC committee

Dear colleagues,

We are planning to close the registration for Eastern European Computer Vision Conference soon as we have already filled 250 out of 300 spots available for CV/ML researchers.

Our speakers have prepared very deep tech talks on hot topics, i.e.

– “FAST GRÖBNER BASIS SOLVERS FOR COMPUTER VISION PROBLEMS” (by Zuzana Kukelova – Department of Cybernetics, FEE, CTU in Prague)

– “STATISTICAL SLAM INITIALIZATION BY BAYESIAN MONTE CARLO POSE GRAPH OPTIMIZATION” (by Tolga Birdal – TUM).

We expect to have live discussions with our speakers during EECVC and a very fun informal after party with all guests and speakers until 5 in the morning in the club, that is located right on a beach on the 7th of July 2018.

If you still have not registered (or did not receive a confirmation from us) please fill in this form.

If you know someone with bright mind in CV/ML who might be interested in coming please share this letter with him so, he could participate.

Thank you and hope to see you soon!

P.S.

Since the EECVC is a not-for-profit conference with no participation fee or hidden ‘headhunting” agenda, we kindly ask you not to bring any corporate advertising like company t-shirts with you.

Sincerely,

Vitaly Goncharuk

Great news, guys!

We have formed an advisory board of Eastern European Computer Vision Conference. It will make the process of sourcing speakers impartial and make the event itself independent and autonomous.

The goal of the Advisory Board creation is to identify relevant topics and speakers, which will make the annual event interesting for participants from around the world(as it was in 2017 and 2016 with participants from more than 12 countries).

The advisory board is comprising of 8 bright data scientists and represent a perfect balance between researchers and industrial experts. So here are the names of the committee that will be from now on responsible for the quality and usefulness of the keynote speeches:

James Pritts (Czech Technical University)
Tolga Birdal (Technical University of Munich)
Dmytro Mishkin (Czech Technical University)
Taras Sereda (Senior Researcher)
Anastasiya Mishchuk (Senior Researcher)
Artem Chernodub (Ukrainian Catholic University)
Anastasiia Kornilova (Senior Researcher)
Oleksandr Obiednikov (Senior Researcher)

This step is the first one in a series of actions aiming at converting the conference from local to global and broadly recognized in the industry …. BUT which retains the same informality, positivity, “party spirit”, and USEFULNESS % =)

Sincerely,

Vitaly Goncharuk
