IEEE Workshop on Combined Research-Curriculum 
Development in Computer Vision 
December 10, 2001 
Kauai Marriot Hotel 
Kauai, Hawaii 
(in conjcunction with CVPR01) 

This workshop follows in the successful tradition of the workshops 
held in conjunction with CVPR'97 and CVPR '00, however, the emphasis 
has been shifted to identifying systematic ways to integrate computer 
vision research into to the computer science and engineering 
curriculum. The goal is to offer systematic and constant computer 
vision research experiences for as many students as possible (both 
undergraduate and graduate). Traditional student research 
participation programs in computer vision (e.g., joining research 
teams, doing summer research, taking advanced courses etc.) have 
demonstrated considerable success in exposing students to current 
computer vision research paradigms. However, it is becoming more and 
more evident that comprehensive instructional programs, which offer 
systematic and constant computer vision research experiences to 
students, will be more effective in involving a larger body of 
students in research and retaining their interest and enthusiasm in 
computer vision. We are seeking for innovative ideas that propose 
integration of computer vision research results into the curriculum 
through systematic and constant activities starting maybe at the 
sophomore year and continuing until graduation, making research an 
integral part of students' education. 

Possible topics for presentation and discussion at the workshop 
include, but are not limited to: 
* injecting computer vision research "modules" into core courses 
(emphasizing the process of scientific inquiry) 
* computer vision courses that have some unique approach 
* computer vision courses addressing industry requirements 
* computer vision courses for non-CS/EE majors 
* courses on mathematical methods for computer vision 
* effective models for summer computer vision student research 
* ``don't do this'' case studies - examples of appealing ideas that did 
not work 
* approaches to successfully disseminate examples of integrating 
computer vision research 
* results into the curriculum (e.g., research modules used by other 
faculty etc.) 
* approaches to successfully evaluate the integration of computer 
vision research into the curriculum 

Three copies of papers should be received no later than July 20th, 
2001 at the address shown below:

Electronic submissions in postscript or pdf are also acceptable. 
Papers will be reviewed with an emphasis on potential to contribute 
toward integrating teaching with computer vision research both at the 
undergraduate and gradute levels. No particual paper format is 
required during the review process. However, all accepted papers 
should be submitted in standard IEEE 2-column format. All submissions 
should include the e-mail address of the corresponding author. It is 
planned that a selection of the best papers presented at the workshop 
will be considered for a special issue of the ***IEEE Transactions on
