CVPR 2024 Breaks Paper and Attendance Records; AI Art Award and Demo Winners Announced


Save the Date for CVPR 2025, 10-17 June, in Nashville


LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 26 June 2024 – The 2024 Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) Conference Program Committee reported today that this year’s conference, which took place last week in Seattle, Wash., U.S.A., surpassed previous conference records. From the highest number of paper submissions ever—11,532, a 26% increase over 2023—to attendance exceeding 12,000 participants from 76 different countries and regions, CVPR drew together a diverse community of today’s leaders in computer vision.

“While we experienced significant growth this year, it still felt like a tight knit gathering of colleagues, friends, and peers,” said Walter J. Scheirer, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Ind., U.S.A., and CVPR 2024 General Chair. “The beauty of CVPR is that it provides an annual forum to convene the community and a collective way for us to come together to advance the industry.”

Technical Program

Even with the conference’s rapid growth, the technical program remained highly competitive. Only 23.6% of all submitted papers were accepted for presentation, and of those, only 3% were chosen as oral presentations. In addition, the 123 workshops and 24 tutorials delivered both tangible exploration and foundational knowledge of some of the most important areas of computer vision today.

“CVPR is the preeminent event for computer vision and related areas,” said David Crandall, Professor of Computer Science at Indiana University, Bloomington, Ind., U.S.A., and CVPR 2024 Program Co-Chair. “Not only is there a record amount and diversity of work this year by authors around the world and from academia, government, and industry, but the quality and depth of the work is also amazing. It’s an exciting time to be in the field.” 

Paper Award Winners

To that point, from the 2,719 accepted papers, 10 were chosen as Best Papers, Best Student Papers, or Honorable Mentions. This year’s awardees included Best Paper Winners “Generative Image Dynamicsfrom a team at Google Research, and “Rich Human Feedback for Text-to-Image Generation from collaborators at the University of California, San Diego; Google Research; University of Southern California; University of Cambridge; and Brandeis University. Best Student Papers consisted of “Mip-Splatting: Alias-free 3D Gaussian Splatting” from colleagues at the University of Tubingen; Tubingen AI Center; Shanghai Tech University; and Czech Technical University in Prague, and BioCLIP: A Vision Foundation Model for the Tree of Life” from a team at The Ohio State University; Microsoft Research; University of California, Irvine; and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. (For a complete list of this year’s award winners, see this press release.)

AI Art Award Winners

The CVPR AI Art Gallery also recognized top artistic works with awards. The gallery featured 68 in-person works, and these pieces, plus a bonus 48, were also presented in the online gallery at From all accepted submissions, the following three works were selected as prize winners this year, earning a cash prize:

  • Unreal Pareidolia -shadows- (2023) – Scott Allen – There is a tendency for perception called pareidolia, in which one’s mind conjures up patterns that one is usually familiar with when one sees a certain object. In this work, images and captions are generated in real time for the shadows of everyday items and toys. The piece functions as an entity that draws out the imagination by influencing the cognitive aspects that occur individually, rather than the human output itself.
  • Digital No Man’s 2023 – Lida Zacharopoulou – An experimental short, animated film exploring AI through AI, this project aims to shed light on the inner workings of AI algorithms, specifically those responsible for creating realistic human faces, like the GAN models. The video depicts a fictional dialogue between the Discriminator and the synthetic creatures it evaluates, commenting on the endless struggle to reach an elusive perfection.
  • Because of You, 2024 Eryk Salvaggio, Avijit Ghosh – Because of You is a digital video work that takes an AI-generated image of Henrietta Lacks—the American woman whose cancer cells are the source of the HeLa cell line, which were taken from her without her consent or the awareness of her family—and activates it into video by extrapolating frames of movement from one frame to the next. The work provides commentary on the dangers of cutting out human creators in the pursuit of technology and a lesson in ethics, privacy, and consent in technological progress.

“It is an honor to receive this award amongst such notable company at this prestigious venue. Bringing Henrietta Lacks’ story to an established conference for AI and computer vision experts can start important conversations about consent, credit, and compensation in AI. We believe that art is a powerful vector for these messages, and by fostering collaborations between creatives and scientists, we can create unique new expressions that drive awareness and change,” remarked Eryk Salvaggio and Avijit Ghosh, Because of You artists and award winners.

Demo Award Winners, Exposition, and Sponsors

This year’s exhibit featured 121 of computer vision’s leading companies from around the globe in 22,100 square feet of space. In addition to product releases and technology reveals from these companies, this year, the CVPR expo also offered 52 demos. Each showcased developing products and early concepts leveraging the latest AI and computer vision advancements. From these demos, the following were selected as this year’s top performers, based on an evaluation from organizers:

Conference platinum sponsors also added to the industry buzz with their presence and included Amazon Science; AMD; Apple; ByteDance; Captions; Google; Hyperbolic; Intel; Lamba; Meituan; Meta; Microsoft; Qualcomm; Sony; and The AI Institute.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

In addition, as sponsors of CVPR, the IEEE Computer Society (CS) and Computer Vision Foundation (CVF) have a deep commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), one shared by the Program Committee. Through a highly engaged CVPR DEI Committee and with the generous support of the IEEE CS Technical Community on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TCPAMI) and CVF, CVPR awarded nearly US$200,000 in travel grants and waived registrations. This work resulted in 181 travel scholarships and 296 registration waivers for applicants from around the globe who might otherwise have not been able to attend the conference.

As Asra Aslam, Ph. D., Research Fellow at the University of Leeds, U.K., and General Chair, Women in Computer Vision (WiCV), shared, “Concerted DEI efforts accelerate the impact in academics and industry and allow us to grow together. By bringing all together, we can help bring about meaningful change towards our goal of a more equitable and supportive environment for all.”

CVPR 2025

Work in computer vision is advancing at a rapid rate, and research breakthrough and milestones will continue to propel the industry forward. Join this community next year at CVPR 2025, 10-17 June, at the Nashville Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn., U.S.A.
