The abstract must include student and advisor(s) names, affiliations and communication address. The extended abstract should clearly describe the main motivation and results with adequate details to allow the program committee to comprehend the potential contribution(s) of the work. All collated accepted abstracts will be available on the ICVGIP website. This doctoral symposium is meant for current Ph.D. students, i.e. they should be bonafide Ph.D. students during the symposium.
