We have created a list of the top conferences, both academic and business, which you MUST attend this year if your interests include computer vision, deep learning and algorithms. Here is also a list of meetups dedicated to computer vision.
1. CVPR’16: IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition
Date: Main Conference, Expo: June 27 – 30, 2016
Workshops: June 26, July 1
Paper submission: Passed
Place: Las Vegas, NV, the United States
CVPR is the premier annual Computer Vision event comprising the main CVPR conference and several co-located workshops and short courses. For the first time the event will host a “trade-show” to foster maximal visibility and exposure for each on-site exhibitor. It is a nice opportunity for academians, students, budding entrepreneurs, technologists and others to cross paths and exchange the latest and newest ideas.
2. ECVC’16: The 14th European Conference on Computer Vision

EECCV is one of the biggest locally European conference. In addition to the main plenary sessions, the conference will include tutorials, workshops, demonstrations and exhibits.
3. SIGGRAPH: International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics & Interactive Techniques
SIGGRAPH is the world’s largest, most influential annual event in computer graphics and interactive techniques: Five days of research results, demos, educational sessions, art, screenings, and hands-on interactivity featuring the community’s latest technical achievements, and three days of commercial exhibits displaying the industry’s current hardware, software, and services
4. Embedded Vision Summit
Dates: May 2- 4, 2016
Place: Santa Clara, CA, USA
The event for innovators who want to incorporate visual intelligence into products. The Embedded Vision Summit 2016 is designed to inspire you to use embedded vision technology in new ways; to empower you with the practical know-how you need to integrate vision capabilities into your products. Meet innovators, luminaries, and colleagues in this fast-growing field. Talk one-on-one with leading vision technology suppliers and learn about their offerings. Attend in-depth workshops and “how-to” sessions across the landscape of computer vision.
5. BMVC: 27TH BRITISH MACHINE VISION CONFERENCE
Dates: September 19-22, 2016
Place: York, UK
The conference organised by the British Machine Vision Association (BMVA). Some of the topics for paper submission include stereo, calibration, geometric modelling and processing, face and gesture recognition, biologically inspired vision,s egmentation and grouping, etc.
6. WACV’16: IEEE Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision
Dates: Main Conference: March 7-9, 2016
Workshops: March 10, 2016
Place: Lake Placid, NY, USA
Another computer vision conference held in United States. The event is oriented on academics. Special discounts are available for IEEE members. Organisers also provide financial assistance for students willing to attend a conference.
7. ACCV’16: The 13th Asian Conference on Computer Vision
Dates: Main Conference: November 21-23, 2016
Workshops/Tutorial: November 20, 24, 2016
Paper submission deadline: May 27, 2016
Place: Taipei, Taiwan
ACCV is a leading biennial international conference mainly sponsored by Asian Federation of Computer Vision. This highly successful series provides a premier forum for researchers, developers, and practitioners to present and discuss new problems, solutions, and technologies in computer vision and related areas. ACCV’16 solicits high-quality original research for publication in its main conference and co-located workshops.
8. EECVC: Eastern European Computer Vision Conference
Dates: 9 July 2016
Place: Odessa, Ukraine
Eastern European Conference on Computer Vision should serve as a forum for ideas relevant to the use of vision and range sensors and robot perception. It will present the latest practical techniques for vision-based product development, as well as examining the commercial landscape, latest trends and business opportunities in this fast-emerging market. The conference is focused exclusively on deployable computer vision for innovators seeking to incorporate visual intelligence into products. Pre-registration is open!
9. ICPRAM’16: The International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods
Dates: February 24 – 26, 2016
Place: Rome, Italy
The International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods would like to become a major point of contact between researchers, engineers and practitioners on the areas of Pattern Recognition, both from theoretical and application perspectives. The conference especially welcomes contributions describing applications of Pattern Recognition techniques to real-world problems, interdisciplinary research, experimental and/or theoretical studies.
10. ICPR’16: International Conference on Pattern Recognition
Dates: December 4 – 8, 2016
Place: Cancun, Mexico
The International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) is an international association of non-profit, scientific or professional organizations (being national, multi-national, or international in scope) concerned with pattern recognition, computer vision, and image processing in a broad sense.
