12th Conference on Computer and Robot Vision

Halifax, Nova Scotia.   June 3-5, 2015.

Welcome to the home page for CRV 2015 which will be held at Dalhousie and at Saint Mary's Universities.

CRV is an annual conference hosted in Canada, and co-located with Graphics Interface (GI) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). A single registration covers attendance in all three conferences. Please see the AI/GI/CRV general conference website for more information.

The CRV proceedings are published through the IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS). Accepted papers appear in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. See archive for links to previous years' papers.


  • We are excited to announce the Keynote speakers for 2015: Kostas Daniilidis (U. Penn) and Demetri Terzopoulos (UCLA), along with the Symposium lineup which includes 16 invited speakers.

Conference History

In 2004, the 17th Vision Interface conference was renamed the 1st Canadian Conference on Computer and Robot Vision. In 2011, the name was shortened to Conference on Computer and Robot Vision.

CRV is sponsored by the Canadian Image Processing and Pattern Recognition Society (CIPPRS).


Important Dates:

Paper submission : Tues. March 3, 2015 midnight (no extensions)
Decisions announced: Fri. March 27, 2015
Revised camera-ready papers: Mon. April 13, 2015
Early registration TBD

This page will contain detailed CRV program information. The higher-level view of the joint conference program, which also includes the AI and GI meetings will be found here.





Paper Submission Instructions

Please refer to the Call For Papers for information on the goals and scope of CRV.

The online submission site for CRV 2015 is not yet ready to accept submissions. The general paper submission deadline is TBD.

The CRV review process is single-blind: authors are not required to anonymize submissions. We encourage authors to submit papers that are 6 two column papers, using the following format:

The maximum length is 8 two-column pages and the minimum length is 4 pages. Papers that are 4-5 pages will most likely be considered for poster presentation only.

Please direct any questions regarding the paper sumbmission process to the conference co-chairs by emailing computerrobotvision2015 "at" gmail.com
