Top 6 computer vision conferences around the world

Computer vision conferences.

At Deepomatic, we have a true passion for computer vision. Therefore, we need (and want) to be constantly updated on new releases and applications of the technology in our fields of interest. 

Thus, we’re sharing a shortlist of the top conferences in computer vision around the world. You’ll find the date and location of the events as well as their frequency and the main topics discussed.

Here are our top computer vision conference picks:

  1. European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV)
  2. International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML)
  3. Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)
  4. British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC)
  5. International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV)
  6. Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS)

1. European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV)

  • Date: August 23-28, 2020.
  • Location: Glasgow, Scotland.
  • Frequency: biennial.
  • Website:

ECCV and ICCV (see below) are top-tier computer vision conferences, with the latter generally recognized as the international version in the same area of research. ECCV is organized on even years in alternation with the ICCV, which takes place on odd years. The European Conference generally takes place in autumn, between September and October. Remember to synchronize the paper submission deadline with that of other top conferences!

2. International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML)

  • Date: July 12-18, 2020.
  • Location: Vienna, Austria.
  • Frequency: annual.
  • Website:

ICML is a leading international academic conference on machine learning and artificial intelligence research. Supported by the International Machine Learning Society, the event encompasses several other closely-related areas like statistics and data science as well as applications such as machine vision and robotics. For these reasons, every year the conference gathers a wide variety of profiles, from academics to business people.

3. Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)

Usually held in June, the CVPR is an annual conference on computer vision and pattern recognition. It is regarded as one of the most important in the field. The event covers any topic encompassing the distinction of structures from images and the application of mathematical models to extract and recognize patterns. Every year, there is an explicit list of topics for that specific edition.

4. British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC)

  • Date: September 9-12, 2019.
  • Location: Cardiff, Wales.
  • Frequency: annual.
  • Paper submission deadline: closed.
  • Website:

This year, the 30th edition of the BMVC will take place in Cardiff, Wales. Hosted by the British Machine Vision Association (BMVA), the conference is one of the major in the UK for computer vision and related fields such as machine vision, image processing, and pattern recognition. Recently, the BMVC has increased in quality and popularity, thus establishing itself as a prestigious event worldwide.

5. International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV)

ICCV is sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Along with CVPR, it is the prominent computer vision conference worldwide.

6. Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS)

Along with the International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML), NeurIPS is the primary conference in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computational neuroscience. Other topics represented include cognitive science, psychology, computer vision, statistical linguistics, and information theory. NeurIPS’ multidisciplinarity is one of its key characteristics. As a matter of fact, as stated by the NeurIPS Foundation, the objective of the conference is “to foster the exchange of research on neural information processing systems in their biological, technological, mathematical, and theoretical aspects” (1).
