ICCV Workshop on Action Recognition with Large Number of Classes

Submission and review policy

Submission page of the research and competition track:

Research track:
Submitted papers should follow the standard ICCV 2013 main conference paper format. Please refer to the ICCV 2013 formatting instructions. All accepted papers (submitted before the early deadline of September 7) will be allocated up to 8 pages in the ICCV proceedings and will be charged a flat fee of US$200. That is, there is no savings for using fewer than 8 pages. Each submission will receive three double-blind reviews, which will then be moderated by the workshop chairs. Please follow the paper submission web site to submit your manuscript.

Competition track:
Please follow the evaluation guidline to perform your experiments. For the participant in the competition track who do not wish to submit a paper to the research track describing their experimental setup, a notebook paper is due two weeks after the results submission. The note book paper should detail the experimental setup.

Notebook Paper:
The participants to the challenge who did not submit a research paper are required to provide a notebook paper to explain their experimental setup as specified in the call for papers. The intention of the notebook paper is to describe the method which was used for achieving the results submitted to the challenge. It will be used for summarization and categorization of the submissions by the challenge organizers.

The notebook papers will be hosted and shared on the challenge website (upon authors' approval) and can be cited so the authors receive citations for their submission. The notebook papers should be prepared according to the ICCV 2013 formatting instructions. Besides the winners who will make oral presentations, the other participants can present their approach on a poster in the workshop session as well.

The notebook paper is due two weeks after the challenge submission (i.e. 11/22/2013). The authors should upload their notebook paper as the supplementary material of their submission to the competition in the CMT website.
