Welcome to DAGM GCPR 2020, VMV 2020 and VCBM 2020!

DAGM GCPR / VMV / VCBM will be a virtual meeting. We are planning live zoom sessions streamed to youtube for orals and keynotes, as well as pre-recorded videos and a discussion forum (discord) for posters. Registration will be free this year. There will be a small processing fee for each published paper. The preliminary program can be found here.

Welcome to the 42nd German Conference on Pattern Recognition (DAGM GCPR 2020), the 25th International Symposium on Vision, Modeling and Visualization (VMV 2020) and the 10th Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine (VCBM 2020) which was planned for the first time to be co-located in Tübingen this year. However, due to COVID-19, the event will be fully virtual.

DAGM GCPR is the annual symposium of the German Association for Pattern Recognition (DAGM). It follows the long tradition of the DAGM conference series, which has been renamed to DAGM GCPR in 2013 to reflect its increasing internationalization. The conference addresses recent advances in theory, methodology, and applications of pattern recognition, machine learning, and computer vision. The GCPR proceedings will be published in a volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series and the best papers from the conference will be invited to a special issue of the International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV).

VMV is the annual symposium of the Computer Graphics Special Interest Group of the German Informatics Society (Jahrestagung des Fachbereichs grafische Datenverarbeitung der Gesellschaft für Informatik [GI e.V.]). It is a unique event that brings together scientists and people interested in the interdisciplinary fields of computer graphics, computer vision, visualization, and visual analytics, with special emphasis on the link between the disciplines. It offers researchers the opportunity to discuss a wide range of different topics within an open, international and interdisciplinary ambience.

VCBM addresses the state of the art in visual computing research with a strong focus on applications in biology and medicine. It provides an interdisciplinary forum for experts (researchers and practitioners) from visualization, visual analytics, computer graphics, image processing, computer vision, human computer interfaces as well as experts from biology and medicine, jointly working on next generation visual computing solutions for medicine, healthcare and the biotechnology sector.

All three conferences are jointly organized by the University of Tübingen. They will take place in parallel from September 28 to October 1st, 2020. On the first day, there will be a special event with invited talks by leading computer vision scientists in the field. The program can be found here.
