CVSS 2015

The Computational Vision Summer School offers a broad perspective on biological vision with a thorough understanding of the theoretical and computational challenges involved. The school is unique in bringing together people from diverse disciplines who all share a computational view of vision. The faculty consists of renowned senior researchers in the field, teaching lectures and providing hands-on tutorials on topics ranging from early vision to image understanding.

The first edition of the Computational Vision Summer School took place from June 28 to July 5, 2012 and was a great event with a mixture of diverse lectures, hands-on tutorials, poster sessions and fruitful discussions between junior and senior scientists.
