For Siddhant Bansal, an MS student at CVIT of IIIT-H, traveling to New Orleans to attend the CVPR Conference came as an exciting opportunity after the ordeal of attending online classes and virtual conferences due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Being the first person to travel abroad from his family, the chance to attend the conference in person brought pride and exhilaration. Siddhant traveled with Prof. C.V. Jawahar, Prof. Makarand Tapaswi, and Prof. Ravi Kiran of CVIT, and another student from IIIT-H. After working together on the Ego4D project for over two years, the team from different parts of the world finally met at the CVPR Conference. Siddhant had the privilege of doing a five-minute poster presentation on the outcome of the Ego4D’s OSCC challenge hosted by him and congratulating the winners. Furthermore, he participated in the panel discussion where he shared his experience around collecting egocentric videos for Ego4D. Attending workshops at the conference was also a delightful experience for him. The much-anticipated gathering of the Ego4D team brought surprises yet warmth to the team. They spent a lot of time together exploring places using public transportation and dining together while sharing many experiences and aspirations.
