IEEE SPS 5-Minute Video Clip Contest: Call for Video

The Signal Processing Society is pleased to announce the 5-Minute Video Clip Contest (5-MICC) at ICIP 2020 in United Arab Emirates (virtual conference) 25-28 October, 2020.

The topic chosen this year is image and video processing tools for fighting the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The submitted video can cover any role that image and video processing may have in management of pandemics. Related areas might be considered as well. For example, it can be detection of coronavirus, identifying and tracking the infected people or people with fever in airports, image acquisition and processing for managing pandemic, COVID-19 detection from chest X-rays (CXRs) and computed tomography (CT) images, recent developments in medical diagnosis treatment, and patients monitoring, as well as future directions for using image and video processing tools for analysis, modeling, and understanding pandemic.

Nonetheless, the contest will also accept “open topic” video submissions, regarding image and video processing for medical applications, even if they are not related to the topic of pandemic. The rationale for this is to engage the broad Signal Processing community to come up with creative ideas. Open topic submissions will compete together with submissions of the chosen yearly topic of fighting pandemic, evaluated by a judging panel with additional members reflecting the submitted open topic areas.

The contest is open for submissions from IEEE SPS members, including undergraduate and graduate students of all majors, as well as researchers from all over the world. Each team must be composed of: (i) One faculty member (the Supervisor); (ii) At most one graduate student (the Tutor), and; (iii) At least three but no more than five undergraduates. At least three undergraduate team members must be either IEEE SPS student members or SPS members by the time they submit the full 5-minute video (see below).

There will be three stages for the call:

1.) Submission of 30-Second Trailers:
Submission deadline: August 30, 2020
Announcement of the best 10 teams: September 10, 2020.

Each submission should include a report, in the form of an IEEE conference paper, up to 2 pages, on the main idea / concept of the full video that will be submitted with the related written script. The selected best 10 teams will be identified and invited to send the final 5-minute video to participate in the final competition.

2.) Submission of the Full 5-Minute Video:
Submission deadline: October 10, 2020.
Announcement of the 3 best videos: October 16, 2020.

Three finalist teams will be selected by the organizing TC.

3.) Final Contest at ICIP 2020 in United Arab Emirates (virtual conference)
Conference dates: 25-28 October 2020

Voting until October 23, 2020. The final ranking will be decided by the judging panel, also taking into account the popular vote. The winners and final team ranking will be announced during the conference.
