DAGM GCPR – Conference

The German Conference on Pattern Recognition (DAGM GCPR) is the annual symposium of the German Association for Pattern Recognition (DAGM). It is the national venue for recent advances in image processing, pattern recognition, and computer vision. The conference follows the long tradition of the DAGM conference series which was established in 1978. It has been renamed to DAGM GCPR to reflect its increasing internationalization. The single track program and poster sessions will provide ample opportunity for open-minded discussion and interaction.

Submission Deadline: July 10, 2020 — Call for Papers as pdf.

The German Conference on Pattern Recognition (DAGM GCPR) 2020 is the 42nd annual symposium of the German Association for Pattern Recognition (DAGM). DAGM GCPR 2020 will take place from September 28 to October 1 at the University of Tübingen, Germany. DAGM GCPR 2020 will be held together with VMV, the International Symposium on Vision, Modeling, and Visualization, and VCBM, the EG Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine.

Given the COVID-19 situation it is unclear yet if the conference will take place in a physical format. We will turn to a virtual format if needed. We encourage authors to submit work to DAGM GCPR even if they do not think they will be able or willing to attend in person due to the virus situation and/or potential travel restrictions.

General Chair:

  • Andreas Geiger (University of Tübingen and MPI-IS)

Program Chairs:

  • Zeynep Akata (University of Tübingen)
  • Andreas Geiger (University of Tübingen and MPI-IS)
  • Torsten Sattler (Chalmers University)

In addition to Image/video processing, analysis, and computer vision, Machine learning and pattern recognition, Mathematical foundations, statistical data analysis and models, Computational photography and confluence of vision and graphics, Biomedical image processing and analysis, Document analysis, Biometrics; GCPR 2020 will feature special tracks chaired and reviewed explicitly by experts from the respective fields below.

  • Computer vision systems and applications
    (Chairs: Bodo Rosenhahn, Carsten Steger)
  • Pattern recognition in the life- and natural sciences
    (Chairs: Joachim Denzler, Xiaoyi Jiang)
  • Photogrammetry and remote sensing
    (Chairs: Helmut Mayer, Uwe Sörgel)

This year’s computer vision keynote talk will be given by Vladlen Koltun (Intel). Furthermore, on the first day, we will host a special session with several invited experts in the field. Confirmed speakers:

  • Matthias Bethge (University of Tübingen)
  • Anna Khoreva (Bosch)
  • Christoph H. Lampert (IST Austria)
  • Davide Scaramuzza (University of Zurich)
  • Bernt Schiele (Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik)
  • Sabine Süsstrunk (EPFL)
  • Siyu Tang (ETH Zurich)
  • Vittorio Ferrari (Google)

We will also host a nectar track where papers already published at major international computer vision and machine learning conferences can be presented.

From all GCPR 2020 submissions the best papers will be invited to contribute to a special issue of the International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV).

Master students are eligible for the Best Master’s Thesis Award or a travel grant of the Young Researchers Forum. Please visit the DAGM Young Researcher Forum website for more information.
