Please read the following instructions carefully before registering:

  • ICVGIP2012 is employing a "passport" registration. Once you register, you can attend any workshop co-located with ICVGIP. There is no separate registration for any co-located event.

  • For all accepted papers (oral or poster), at least one author must register by Oct 29, 2012 at early-bird non-student rate for the paper to appear in the digital archives of ACM. Even if an author is common to more than one accepted paper, one unique early-bird non-student registration must be done for each paper. (Other authors of SUCH papers who will be attending the conference must register separately under student/non-student rates as appropriate.) Every accepted paper must be presented by one of the authors.

  • Note that the registration will be considered complete only after we receive the payment. A confirmation email will be sent to the registered participants. A receipt stating the paid amount will be provided on demand to the participants at the conference venue.

  • Registration fees includes admission to all technical sessions (including tutorials, workshops, invited talks), daily lunch, conference dinner and conference kit.

  • Limited financial support for students to attend ICVGIP 2012 is expected to be made available. More details can be found at the bottom of this page here.

B. Premium Accommodation Information

ICVGIP 2012 organizing committee has made accommodation arrangements for a significant number (but not all) of registered attendees. Details of accommodation arrangements are given below.

Update: We are now waitlisting accommodation requests. Confirmation emails are being sent out.
  • Student Accommodation: Accommodation for students will be made available in the hostels of IIT Bombay at the rate of 150 INR per-day, per-head. Hostel rooms are modest, compact, shared, with no self-contained shower or toilet facilities. We will put up a list of what you need to bring with you later. The conference venue is at a walkable distance from the hostels. Please note that only students with valid degree-granting student id are eligible for hostel accommodation. The INR 150 charge does not include any charges for meals. Students can eat inexpensively at the hostel mess by paying on the spot.

  • Delegate Accommodation: We have arranged for accommodation in well-maintained guest houses (with AC) about 1km from IIT Bombay Main Gate, and at the rate of 1500 INR (30 USD) per-day, per-head. The rooms are on twin sharing basis (women and men will, by default not be allotted the same shared room, unless explicitly requested). If you insist on a single room to yourself, simply pay double. These charges also do not include any meals.

  • These charges must be paid fully in advance with the registration payment using one of the payment options as explained below.

  • Directions to reach the Delegate and Student Accommodations can be found here.

  • Other Options: If you want to make your own arrangements we can suggest a number of hotels around IIT Bombay whose details can be found here.

C: Payment Steps

Complete Steps 1, 2 and 3 to pay for registration and accommodation

Step 1: Calculate the total amount you have to pay
  • For example, you are an Indian student who wants to register for ICVGIP2012 at the early-bird rate and wants to stay in the IIT Bombay Hostel for 3 days. If you are paying by electronic transfer/demand draft then the total amount you have to pay is 2000 + 3 * 150 = 2450 INR. If you are paying by credit card then the amount you have to pay is 2200 + 3 * 165 = 2725 INR

  • For example you are an Indian academic who wants to register for ICVGIP2012 at the early-bird rate and wants to stay in the guest house for 2 days in a single room. If you are paying by electronic transfer/demand draft then the total amount you have to pay is 5000 + 2 * (2*1500) = 11000 INR. If you are paying by credit card then the amount you have to pay is 5500 + 2 * (2*1650) = 12100 INR

Step 2: Select a payment method
  • Electronic fund (Wire) transfer: The details required for executing the electronic transfer are as follows

    • Otherwise, please go to this page. Choose the ticket available and click register. Fill in the form that appears with all the information asked.

    E: Funding Support for Emerging Researchers

    The organizers of ICVGIP have enabled bursaries, primarily for student participants. The bursaries is expected to cover a significant portion of economical travel within India, conference registration, and incidental expenses. Participants are required to register for the conference, pay in advance, and subsequently request for the said bursary also in advance.

    Amounts will be reimbursed only at the end of the conference, and only on production of original receipts (and, as mentioned above, will require prior application). Further information on the bursary application process is expected to appear within a week of the expiry of the early bird deadline. Please do not send any emails about this till the application information becomes available.

    Visit this page for the application.

    Also, note that an application for funding does not imply automatic selection for the bursary.

    Students are urged to be in touch with their advisors/supervisors to take advantage of this since a recommendation letter is expected.
