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 2016 Summer School will take place at the Swansea University between 4 July and 8 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”.
Swansea University’s Bay Campus is situated on a 65 acre former BP Transit site in Neath Port Talbot on the eastern approach into Swansea and has the distinction of being one of the few global universities with direct access onto a beach and its own seafront promenade. Summer school dinner will be at the Meridian Tower at the Marina. More details on summer school venue can be found here.
