The British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC) is one of the major international conferences on computer vision and related areas. It is organised by the British Machine Vision Association (BMVA). The 31st BMVC will now be a virtual event held online from 7th—10th September 2020.

Submit your Paper!

Authors are invited to submit full-length high-quality papers in image processing, machine vision, and related areas for the 2020 British Machine Vision Conference. Submitted papers will be refereed on their originality, presentation, empirical results, and quality of evaluation.

All papers will be reviewed doubly blind, normally by three members of our international programme committee. Please note that BMVC is a single track meeting with oral and poster presentations and will include three keynote presentations and two tutorials.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Accepted papers will be included the conference proceedings published and DOI indexed by BMVA. Past proceedings can be found online: here. Prospective authors can have a look at the 2019 edition:, as an example.

Please Note: In keeping with conferences in the field (e.g. NeurIPS) and to cope with the increasing number of submissions, we ask that all authors be prepared to review papers and make use of a compulsory abstract submission deadline a week before the paper submission deadline. The CMT submission site will ask authors to acknowledge this commitment and failure to engage with the reviewing process might be grounds for rejection.

The abstract deadline is Thursday 23rd April 2020 and the paper submission deadline is Thursday 30th April 2020 (both 23:59, Pacific Time). Submission instructions may be found here.

Note: Due the anticipated volume of papers for BMVC 2020 (based on recent year’s experience) there will NO extension granted to the submission deadline.

Selected best papers are invited to a special issue of the International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV) for BMVC 2020 Best Papers.
