IEEE VIP Cup Competition
IEEE SPS Video and Image Processing Cup
Sunday, September 22, 2019 - 14:00-18:00
The IEEE SPS Video and Image Processing Cup (VIP Cup) student competition, presented by the IEEE Signal Processing Society, gives students the opportunity to work together to solve real-life problems using video and image processing methods. After students submit their work, three final teams are selected to present their work and compete for the grand prize at ICIP 2019!
Interested in competing? The submission deadline is June 15, 2019. For full competition details, eligibility requirements, and team registration, visit the IEEE Signal Processing Society website.
While only the final three teams will be competing at ICIP 2019, all are welcome to watch the students present their work during the final competition. Join us and come see the action!

Participation in the Competition
Each team participating in the competition is to be composed of one faculty member (whose role is the supervisor of the team members), at most one graduate student (who will assist the supervisor in supervising the undergraduate team members), and at least 3 but no more than 10 undergraduates. At least three of the undergraduate team members must be either IEEE SP members or student members.
Participating teams must submit their project by June 15, 2019. Each submission should include a report, in the form of an IEEE conference paper, on the technical details of the methods used and the results, as well as the programs developed. By July 15, 2019, the best 3 teams will be identified to participate in the final competition at ICIP2019.
