The Institute for Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Technology (INSAIT) at the St Kliment Ohridski University of Sofia has more accepted papers at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference (CVPR) 2024 than some of the top universities. The conference is taking place in Seattle, Washington from June 17 to 21.

Traditionally, some of the most innovative projects in this scientific field are published at the conference, the Education and Science Ministry said on Friday.

The conference programme includes 16 papers featuring INSAIT scientists. This is a serious dominance of the Bulgarian scientific organization, and the number of papers is comparable to those of the top-ranked universities in the world. For instance, the Delft University of Technology has two accepted papers, Technion (Israel) has six, Cornell 12, and Cambridge 13. INSAIT is close to the number of papers of the two leading American universities, Princeton which has 17 accepted papers and Harvard has 20.

INSAIT papers are spread over research areas including multimodal AI, autonomous driving, generative AI, quantum computing for AI, edge AI and foundational AI.

Bulgaria not only makes a significant breakthrough with 16 papers, but also has one of the youngest authors in the history of the conference. Eleventh-grader Reni Paskaleva participated in INSAIT's summer research programme for students.

This is the first time a Bulgarian scientific organization has participated in the conference since it started 40 years ago.

CVPR is the most cited AI and computer vision conference in the world, according to h5-index. CVPR also ranks no.4 across all areas of science along with Nature, The New England Journal of Medicine and Science.

INSAIT is the first establishment of its kind in Eastern Europe, offering world-class research facilities and conditions. INSAIT was founded in April 2022, in partnership with Switzerland’s ETH Zurich and EPFL, two of the world’s best technical universities, and collaborates with top academics from some of the most elite US, European, and Israeli universities and research labs. INSAIT says its sole focus is on scientific excellence: conducting world-class research, attracting outstanding international scientists, and training the next generation of graduate students and technology leaders.
