Updated Schedule:
The order of the presentations has been changed.
We will have three talks on Tuesday, January 22nd 2013!

Introductory meeting (mandatory):
Thursday, July 26, 2012, 16:15h, Building E1.7, Room SR 001
In this meeting, we will assign the topics to the participants. Your attendance is mandatory.

The registration period was
from Friday, July 20, 2012, 13:00h
to Wednesday, July 25, 2012, 12:00h
First come, first serve: Places are filled in the order in which registrations are received.

No free capacity is left in this seminar.

Regular meetings during the winter term 2012/2013:
Tuesdays, 16:15h, Building E1.7, SR 001

Date of first regular meeting: Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Last meeting (planned): Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Contents: In this seminar, we will discuss influential milestone papers on the one hand, and some of the most interesting papers from recent conferences and journals on the other. 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 analysis is recommended.

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

The registration period is over..

Notice that registration was only possible
from Friday, July 20, 2012, 13:00h
to Wednesday, July 25, 2012, 12:00h.

Since the number of talks is limited, we ask for your understanding that participants are considered strictly in the order of registration – no exceptions.

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, March 01, 2013, 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.

We plan to discuss the following papers. If your registration was successful, the password will be sent to you before the first meeting.
