visum (VISion Understanding and Machine intelligence) is an 8-day-school with lectures and practical sessions given by prominent international researchers. It is visum's objective to foster the communication of the most recent topics which will bridge the gap between the most fundamental concepts and its applications in the most various industrial fields. We have reserved time for the industry and poster sessions. In the former, industry speakers will promote junior researchers’ awareness of computer vision topics for real world scenarios, whereas in the latter MSc. students and Ph.D. candidates can discuss their current research works, possibly leading to significant breakthroughs in the development of their theses.
visum’s target audience are Ph.D. candidates, Post-Doctoral scholars and researchers from academia and industry with research interests in computational vision and machine intelligence. Aiming for excellence, applicants will be accepted upon a reviewing process based on their curriculum, background knowledge and research path.
In a nutshell visum's goals are:
- To promote the development of the most up-to-date themes on computer vision, fulfilling the existing gap in key concepts;
- To promote its applications in different industrial fields.
The second edition of visum will be held at School of Engineering at Universidade do Porto, Portugal during the period between the 3th and 10th of July 2014
