The ICCV'99 Conference Plenary Session Presentations

Oral presentations at ICCV will take place during 10 time slots as shown in the conference timetable. The main ballroom will have multi-format video, 1024x780 resolution SVGA projector, overhead projector, 35mm slide projector  - with two screens - and sound system available for your use. It will be entirely your responsibility to contact the technicians running the equipment for proper set-up for your presentation. To assist you with this, there will be two conference helpers (fluent in English and Greek) to guide you - they will be identified by AV badges/ribbons.

All presentations are of 30 minutes duration, 25 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions. This constraint will be rigidly enforced.

In the list below each presentation will be prefixed with the session code (P1 for "Presentations 1" above, for example). If you are unable due to your travel constraints (only!) to accept your time slot, please let me know and we can try to make changes.

One of the poolside rooms (Room B) is reserved for speaker preparation. There will be an overhead projector,  and a 1024x780 resolution SVGA Projector available in that room for your use.

Finally, please note that since the papers nominated for the David Marr Prize include at least one oral presentation, you may be moved to the prize session on the first day. The number of talks listed below do not fit into the allotted time on the assumption that 4 will be moved to the prize session. The final program will be known only a few days before the meeting; authors who will be moved to the prize session will be contacted separately. Your final time slot, if not in the prize session, will be determined by simply filling in the gaps left by the prize papers. The ordering below, except for the prize papers, will be maintained and is the same order in which the papers appear in the proceedings.
