Copyright Transfer Form

The Copyright Transfer Form is necessary for each papers included in the online/USB/paper proceedings and the MVA Organization archive. Choose ‘Transfer copyright’ link, and fill the columns as instructed.


At least one author for a paper who makes presentation must complete the registration to ensure that your paper is included in the proceedings. Registration can be made online. A presenter must register as ‘Speaker’. The registration site will open later.

Extra page charge must be correctly registered. Payment of the fee should be made by credit card or bank transfer and must be completed by the deadline also. We do not accept personal checks.

The author who registers must give presentation without fail. If he/she fails to appear for the presentation, all the rights covered by the registration will be jeopardized, including the right to receive a copy of the proceedings. The MVA Organization reserves the right to exclude his/her paper from distribution after the conference e.g. from the archive of MVA proceedings and the IEEE Xplore. No proxy, pre-recorded or remote online presentation is allowed.

According to the IAPR’s policy, an author having more than one paper accepted, only one registration is required for publication. Other authors are also welcomed to register and participate in the conference. Accommodation, tutorials, young researchers meeting and the technical exhibition can also be booked through this registration web site.
