BMVA Computer Vision Summer School 2014
1 intensive week of training
16 speakers from both academia and industry
19 years of BMVA tradition
BMVA runs an annual Computer Vision Summer School aimed at PhD students in their first year, though it will be beneficial to other researchers at an early stage in their careers. Despite the title, students from non-UK universities are welcome to attend, as well as students from UK universities. Places are limited to ensure good interaction in lab classes.
The 2014 Summer School will take place at the Swansea University between 30 June and 4 July. It will consist of an intensive week of lectures and lab sessions covering a wide range of topics in Computer Vision and Digital Image Computing. Lecturers are researchers from the most active Computer Vision research groups in the UK.
In addition to the academic content, the Summer School provides a networking opportunity for students to interact with their peers, and to make contacts among those who will be the active researchers of their own generation.
Some quotes from delegates who attended the previous Summer Schools at Manchester University and Kingston University: “I think the variety of the topics is very good”, “Diverse set of requirements were handled very well. I found it extremely helpful and fun!”, “Nice overall atmosphere to get in touch with people working in a similar/related field”. “Lecturers did a very good job in bringing the topics across”. “Thanks for organizing! I’ve met cool people and learnt a lot”.
The summer school lectures will be held in the The Faraday Lecture Theatre and the lab classes will take place at Digital Technium building. The reception on the 30th of July will take place in the top floor Hub in the Institute of Life Science (ILS) 2 building. Summer school dinner will be at the Meridian Tower at the Marina.
