British Machine Vision Conference
BMVC is a successor of the older British Alvey Vision Conference (AVC), which had run in years 1985 (University of Sussex), 1987 (University of Cambridge), 1988 (University of Manchester) and 1989 (University of Reading). The British Machine Vision Conference has replaced AVC in 1990, when BMVA was founded. Despite starting as a national conference, it is now a prestigious major international venue with high level of foreign participation (in 2013, 84% of accepted papers were completely from outside the UK and another 4% with mixed authorships) and high stress on quality of publications (in 2013, the acceptance rate was only 30%). BMVC is a mid-sized conference, with the number of accepted publications (and therefore number of talks and posters) around 200.
