Regular meetings during the summer term 2012:
New room: Wednesday, 16:15h, Building E1.7, Room 4.10

Date of first regular meeting: Wednesday, May 02, 2012

Last meeting: Wednesday, July 04, 2012


Contents: There has been enormous progress in image processing, computer vision and related areas in recent years. Both the quality of the algorithms and the capabilities of the hardware have improved significantly. In this seminar the participants learn more about recent techniques published at leading conferences and journals in the field.
The topics include but are not limited to image acquisition, image denoising and inpainting, sparse data representation, computer vision, optic flow and 3-D reconstruction.

Prerequisites: The seminar is for advanced bachelor or master students in Visual Computing, Mathematics or Computer Science. Basic mathematical knowledge (e.g. Mathematik für Informatiker I-III) is required, and some knowledge in image processing is recommended.

Language: All papers are written in English, and English is the preferred language of presentation.


There are no more places left so registration is closed.

Regular attendance: It is expected that you attend all seminar meetings, except for provable important reasons (we check).

Talk: Talk duration is 30 min, plus 15 min for discussion. Please do not deviate from this time schedule.
You may give a presentation using a data projector («beamer«), overhead projector or blackboard, or mix these media appropriately. Your presentation should be delivered in English. Your slides and your write-up, too, should be in English.

Write-up: The write-up has to be handed in no later than three weeks after the end of the lecturing period, i.e. Friday, August 17, 12:00h. The write-up should summarise your talk, about 5 pages per speaker will be adequate in most cases. Electronic submission is preferred. File format for electronic submissions is PDF – text processor files (like .doc) are not acceptable. Adhere to the standards of scientific referencing: Quotations and copied material (such as images) must be clearly marked as such, and a bibliography is required.

Mandatory consultation: Talk preparation has to be presented to your seminar supervisor no later than one week before the talk is given. It is your responsibility to approach us timely and make your appointment!

No-shows: In case you do not appear to your scheduled talk, we reserve the right to exclude you from all future seminars of our group.
