Welcome to CVPR from the PAMI TC and the entire CVPR 2019 organizing team, and we look forward to seeing you soon in Long Beach.
You may know that the U.S. government has taken action against a number of technology companies headquartered in China as part of an ongoing trade dispute between the two countries. Affected companies have been placed on a list, and organizations within U.S. jurisdiction cannot share technology with companies on that list unless it is otherwise publicly available. These actions have drawn greater attention recently with the addition of Huawei, a major participant at CVPR. The IEEE is currently interpreting these restrictions cautiously and has issued guidelines that discourage their organizations from sharing papers with researchers from companies on the list unless they have already been accepted for publication, which has implications for our peer review process This has caused a lot of confusion as well as understandable outrage in our community and others.
The PAMI TC and CVPR have always believed that our meetings are open to all who wish to submit their work or otherwise participate, and we welcome all as friends and colleagues. IEEE’s interpretation of these restrictions affects only whether members of listed companies may review papers. Participation in our public meetings is not affected. However, we firmly believe that program chairs and area chairs, as well as editors for our journals, should be able to choose the referee for a paper freely, and we will continue to advocate for this view very strongly.
After receiving further clarification from the U.S. government, IEEE has lifted their guidelines discouraging the sharing of unpublished papers with employees of Huawei and others on the restricted export list. We welcome this change and will continue to advocate for open science in all of its aspects.
