01/11/2021 ∙ by Hazel Doughty, et al. ∙ 2

In this paper we present the details of Women in Computer Vision Workshop - WiCV 2020, organized in alongside virtual CVPR 2020. This event aims at encouraging the women researchers in the field of computer vision. It provides a voice to a minority (female) group in computer vision community and focuses on increasingly the visibility of these researchers, both in academia and industry. WiCV believes that such an event can play an important role in lowering the gender imbalance in the field of computer vision. WiCV is organized each year where it provides a.) opportunity for collaboration with between researchers b.) mentorship to female junior researchers c.) financial support to presenters to overcome monetary burden and d.) large and diverse choice of role models, who can serve as examples to younger researchers at the beginning of their careers. In this paper, we present a report on the workshop program, trends over the past years, a summary of statistics regarding presenters, attendees, and sponsorship for the current workshop.
