CVIR reviewer workshop

The first CVIR reviewer workshop of 2020 took place at IROS 2020 in Salzburg. With a very active group of participants, the workshop led to interesting and interactive discourse with lots of food for thought for both the reviewers and CVIR Editor-in-Chief alike.


Thank you to all attendees!
