We solicit proposals for tutorials to be held at the IEEE Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV 2023). WACV 2023 is planned as an in-person conference with associated in-person tutorials in Waikoloa, Hawaii, January 3-7, 2023. However, proposals for purely virtual tutorials will also be considered. Accepted tutorials will be held on either January 3 or January 7.

Tutorials should aim to give a comprehensive overview of a specific topic related to computer vision. A good tutorial should be educational rather than just a cursory survey of techniques. The topic should be of sufficient relevance and importance to attract significant interest from the computer vision community. Typical tutorial audiences consist of graduate students studying computer vision, but also include researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry. 

A good tutorial should also present a coherent program with some pedagogical value. If the proposed tutorial mainly consists of invited talks, the proposers are strongly encouraged to have a clear description of the coordination plan among the speakers to ensure the coherence and pedagogical value of the tutorial.


Proposals should be in PDF format and should include the following information:

  • Proposed title
  • Proposers' names, titles, affiliations, emails, and brief bio sketches
  • Preference for half- or full-day event
  • Type of tutorial, i.e., in-person or virtual (the latter requires a short justification)
  • Course description with list of topics to be covered, along with a brief outline and important details; if relevant, include coordination plan among speakers
  • List of citations and/or URLs to relevant publications and products by the organizers, and to other relevant related work
  • A description of how this proposal relates to tutorials/short courses appearing at CVPR, ICCV,  ECCV, and WACV within the last three years
  • (optional) Social impact of the tutorial

Diversity, equity and inclusion

We especially encourage proposals involving diverse organizing teams and communities currently under-represented at WACV. We also welcome tutorial topics that address issues in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Computer Vision applications.

For any questions, please contact the tutorial co-chairs Michael Maire ( and Yang Wang (
