Contents: There has been enormous progress in image processing and computer vision in recent years. Both the quality of the models and the efficiency of the algorithms have improved significantly. In this seminar participants learn more about these recent advances.

Prerequisites: The seminar is designed for graduate students (i.e. advanced Bachelor, Master, and post-Vordiplom) of visual computing, computer science or mathematics. Specific knowledge in image analysis or computer visision is recommended.

Language: Understanding scientific text in English is indispensable. Talks and write-up can be in English or German.

Sign-up: If you are interested to participate, you can register yourself
from Wednesday, July 21, 2010, 12:00h to Friday, July 23, 2010, 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.

Sessions: First meeting takes place Friday, July 23, 2010, 16:15h, Building E1.1, Room 306. Regular sessions will be weekly during the winter term. Exact schedule to be determined at first meeting.

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 significantly from this time schedule.
You may give a presentation using a data projector (»beamer«), overhead projector or blackboard, or mix these media appropriately. English is preferred as language of presentation; if you should decide to talk in German anyway, you must use slides in English.

Write-up: The write-up has to be handed in till three weeks after the end of the lecturing period. 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. We recommend using LaTeX. 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 not later than in the week before the talk is given. It's your responsibility to approach us timely and make your appointment!

Please note that the schedule is preliminary and subject to changes.
