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,
Volleyball and Climbing. 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 and PhD students in particular). Following the
summer school, on Saturday there will be a workshop where the teachers
will present their latest research work. Students can attend this
exciting workshop for free and have the opportunity to see some cutting
edge computer vision research.
