The ICIP 2023 Organizing Committee invites proposals for Tutorials and Short Courses on topics in image processing that would be of interest to participants of the conference, to strengthen their knowledge and have the potential for major impact on the field in the near future.

  • Tutorials at IEEE ICIP 2023 will be half day (3 hours) or full day (6 hours), to be held on October 8, 2023. They can be theoretical and hands-on.
  • Short courses are organized in collaboration with the IEEE Signal Processing Society (IEEE-SPS) Education Board. This is a new initiative for ICIP following the success at ICASSP 2022. Short courses are typically for a total of 10 hours spread across the days of the conference. They should be different than tutorials and aim for a broader view covering a wide spectrum of ideas and results in their area, and not focusing only on research results from a specific individual or group. Both established and emerging domains in image processing are welcome, and we also encourage experiential, hands-on components that introduce methods and tools.

Required Proposal Information

Each proposal must be no longer than 6 pages (not including presentation material) and includes the following information:

  1. Title:            A short descriptive title.
  2. Duration:    Half day (3 hours), full day (6 hours), or a for short course would be 4 hours on October 8 and 2 hours per day from October 9-11.
  3. Presenters: Names, affiliation, contact information (email and mailing address), and short bio for each presenter.
  4. Description: A description of the tutorial topic, providing a sense of both the scope and depth of the tutorial, along with a tutorial outline.
  5. Expected audience: Include the background of audience and expected number of attendees.
  6. Recent publications: List recent publications related to the tutorial topic from the speakers in the past 3 years.
  7. Relevance: Address the importance and timeliness of the proposal, and its relevance to researchers and engineers.
  8. Previous editions: If the tutorial was given before, describe when and where it was given, and if and how it will be modified for IEEE ICIP 2023. If possible, provide a link to slides of the previous tutorial presentation.
  9. Presentation material:
    Tutorial:      If a draft of the tutorial material (to be distributed to tutorial participants) is available that can aid in assessing the proposal and also enable the committee to provide more constructive suggestions for the content.
    Short course: To enhance a deeper and multi-sided understanding of the course content, some exercise materials, and possibly some hands-on experimentation should be available for the course attendees. Support in the form of a $5000 honorarium will be available for the Developers and Presenters of each accepted short course, as well as certification for the developer(s) and their team(s) in recognition of their contributions to IEEE-SPS Education.

Evaluation Criteria

Proposals will be reviewed by the Tutorial Committee using the following criteria:

  • Timeliness of the proposal: Importance of the topic in 2023 and relevance to IEEE ICIP.
  • Quality of the proposal: State-of-the art coverage of the topic, coherence, and experience of the speakers.
  • Spectrum of the proposal: Topic is of broad interest to academia and/or industry, researchers and/or engineers.
  • Accessibility of presentation material: Presentation can be understood by the broad IEEE ICIP audience including graduate students, practicing engineers, researchers and professors.
