Paper Presentation


An important aspect of research is to read papers that have been published in the field to stay updated with the state of the art as well as to explore new or different ideas.

In this assignment, you will have the opportunity to read, critically analyze, and present a paper on geometric computer vision.

Remember that, the publication process is dependent on peer-review, where fellow researchers review the papers submitted to a conference/journal, and the decision on the acceptance/rejection is based on the reviews. Thus it is crucial for the field to have reviewers that evaluate the papers critically and thoroughly.


Objective

The goal of this assignment is to:
explore and become more familiar with the state of the art in geometric computer vision
gain experience in reading and reviewing papers.
In the process, you will also be able to work on your presentation and teamwork skills.


Assignment

You will work in groups of 2-3 students to present a recent paper in the area of geometric computer vision. The idea is to read the selected paper with a critical lens: to understand the proposed method and its context in the literature, analyze its strengths and weaknesses, and to come up with further questions or even ideas to improve it. You can also try the implementation of the method (the code may be publicly available or you can request the authors for it) to test it and thereby understand it better.

I’ve provided a list of suggested papers at the end of this doc, but you can also select a paper not on this list, provided I approve it (see the “Paper proposal” section in the “To-do” below). Broadly, the criteria to select a paper is:
Published at a top conference (CVPR/ICCV/ECCV) or journal (IJCV, PAMI) in computer vision
Relatively recent (after ~2015)
Preferably on a geometric/algebraic approach
If you are really keen on presenting a paper that does not meet the above criteria, you can still submit it in your proposal and I will consider it.


To-do

The assignment will have three phases:
Paper proposal
Discussion session
Paper presentation

Paper proposal

Each group will submit a proposal that contains a list of 3 preferred papers that the group would like to work on, along with a brief comment on the reason for selecting each paper.

The list of papers should be be sorted in order of preference (1→most preferred). If multiple groups have the same first preference, it will be assigned to the group that submitted the proposal first.

Proposal format:
PDF file containing the names of the group members and the ordered list of papers, along with a brief comment on the reasons for selecting each paper. For each paper, include details such as author names, conference/journal, year of publication etc. (you can get this easily from Google scholar, as done for the “Suggested papers” list below). The reason for selecting each paper should be short and clear - 1 or 2 lines are sufficient. A template in Latex for the proposal is available on the VP channel in MS Teams.

Send your proposal by email to:

Deadline: Tuesday, 30 March 23h59


Discussion session

After your paper proposals have been submitted (and approved), we will have a session where you can work on your paper presentations and ask any questions related to the assignment or your papers.

During this session, each group will discuss their progress with me, including:
Work done so far
Work remaining
Estimated timeline
Project management (tools used, division of work between group members, etc.)
I will assign a grade (as project management) based on this discussion, which will factor in to the final grade for the paper presentation.

Discussion session: 27 April 10h-12h


Paper presentation


The paper presentations will be in front of a jury composed of me, David Fofi, and possibly other researchers from the VIBOT team.

Evaluation criteria:
includes demonstrating an understanding of the selected paper, its context in the literature, critical analysis of the work, and discussion and ideas for extensions or improvements.

Format:
each group will have 15 minutes maximum for the presentation followed by ~10 minutes for Q&A. We will interrupt and stop the presentation after 15 minutes (this happens sometimes at conference sessions as well!).

Presentation date and location: Monday 31 May 14h-17h, room TBD

Schedule:
I highly encourage you to attend all the presentations, and, if you have time, to read or at least skim through the papers presented by the other groups. This will enable you to learn more about the different papers presented by the other groups and have a wider understanding of geometric computer vision problems and methods. However, you do not have to attend the other presentations and you will be free to arrive in time for your own group’s presentation and leave after it. To avoid any delays, I suggest that you plan to arrive ahead of time by at least two presentations. For example, if your group is presenting fifth, ensure that you are there by the time of the third presentation (each presentation is of maximum 15 minutes, so you can estimate the time when you should be there).

Each group will have a couple of minutes to set up. Make sure that you have everything you need - adapters to connect to the projector, laser pointer, etc. I suggest that you test your set up in advance in the presentation room (room to be decided, probably will be Amphi 8).

The following is the order of the presentations (which I determined through a random wheel spin, similar to how we did it for the OpenCV project presentations):
