About Event

Eastern European Conference on Computer Vision is a unique opportunity for computer vision researchers and developers to meet, share their knowledge, learn about new trends and find like-minded people. It should serve as a forum for ideas relevant to the use of vision and range sensors in robot perception, augmented reality and object recognition.

Our formula for a great conference: lectures + networking + sunny days + THE SEA.

It will be held at the same time as Odessa’s iconic fashion week, rock and jazz festivals, as well as other events.

The attendance is free of charge, but by invitation only! We want to build a community of Computer Vision professionals with practical experience. To attend, please, register. We will review  your application and confirm participation in 1-2 days.

The conference is organised by Augmented Pixels, the leading expert in augmented reality and image processing technologies.

Generic Questions About This Event

The conference will be an all-day event on the 9th of July.
The conference will take place on the second floor of the Impact Hub Odessa.
As the conference will be very topic specific for developers and researchers with extensive experience in computer vision, it is important that the participants are all on the same page. By doing the selection among those who applied for the participation we could prevent disappointment of those, who are new to CV and who will have hard time understanding the presentations. The second reason is that the number of participants will be limited to 100 people, so we would like to have the best mix of expertise among the participants.
Eastern European Computer Vision Conference is an event for R&D engineers, developers, and researchers, who are well aware of computer vision and deep learning.
The attendance is FREE for the chosen participants. There will be coffee, cookies and conference materials.
Eastern European Computer Vision Conference gives everyone a chance for professional growth and networking. We choose only the best experts in machine vision from Europe so that you could be among the first to learn about the newest practical applications.
