Prague, 27-31 August 2012
application deadline: 15 May 2012
Organized in collaboration with NIFTi
Vision and Sports is a special special kind of summer school. In
addition to a broad-range of lectures on state-of-the-art Computer
Vision techniques, it offers exciting sport activities, such as
Tennis, Archery, Kung-Fu and Ultimate Freesbee. Sports are organized
by the same internationally renowned experts who deliver the lectures.
The school offers the best of both worlds to participants:
high-quality teaching on Computer Vision, and lots of fun with a
variety of attractive sports. This offers plenty of opportunity for
personal contact between students and teachers.
The Vision and Sports Summer School covers a broad range of subjects,
reflecting the diversity of Computer Vision. Each lecture will cover
both basic aspects and state-of-the-art research. Every day there are
two Computer Vision classes and one sports session. The classes
include both lectures and practical exercises.
The school is open to about 60 participants, and is targeted mainly to
young researchers (Master students and PhD students in particular).
Following the 5-day summer school, there will be a robotic workshop
organized by the EU project NIFTi (www.nifti.eu). The participants
will apply vision algorithms on the NIFTi mobile robot(s) and move the
robot around using the Ladybug3 camera the robot is equipped with.
Attendance to this workshop is optional and limited to a small number
of attendees. http://cmp.felk.cvut.cz/niftivisionworkshop2012/
