Mrs. Voss, Building E2.4, Room 111 (math building, ground floor, 8.15-12.00 AM).
Contents: There has been enormous progress in computer vision and vision related topcs such as computational photography and image processing in recent years. Both the quality of the algorithms and the capabilites of the hardware have improved significantly. In this seminar the participants learn more about recent techniques published at the leading conferences and journals in the field.
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, please sign up by e-mailing to firstname.lastname@example.org from Friday, January, 28, 2011, 12:00h to Thursday, February 3, 2011, 16:00h. Please include your name, student ID (Matrikelnummer), date of birth, study program, and valid e-mail address.
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, February 4, 2011, 14:15h, Building E1.1, Room 306. Regular sessions will be weekly during the summer term each Wednesday at 16:15h, Building E1.1, Room 306.

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!
