Location:

Location of IPCV'02 is the campus of the University of Koblenz. You can get a map of the campus here.
Here you can find a map of Koblenz with the main locations of the IPCV (~289kb). The University, the Station and two booked hotels are marked with red circles.
The registration is on Monday, July 22nd, 9.00-10.00, in Room B325. All lectures take place in building E, room E 011. The exercises take place in the computer labs of building A.

Social Events:

We're planning to have two social events together with the participants from Finland, France, and Germany.

Wednesday 24th July: BBQ

The first social event will be on July, 24th, at the
    barbecue place of the hotel 'Sporthafen'
    Am Gülser Bootshaafen 31
    56072 Koblenz - Güls
(That is between Koblenz-Güls and Winningen direct behind Güls.)

We will meet at 18.45 at the lecture hall of IPCV and walk together along the banks of the River Mosel to the BBQ spot at the hotel 'Sporthafen' in Güls. (A walk of 45 minutes.)

Between 23.oo and 24.oo a bus will pick us up and transfer us to different places, say one stop at the University and 3 stops in the center of Koblenz according to your whishes. People at the Hotel Kreuter in Güls should walk, as the distance from the BBQ to Kreuter is minimal.

So, DO NOT COME BY CAR. Better enjoy the drinks.

All meals and drinks are free due to a donation of the companies:
    Real Vision Systems and
    Titech Visionsort, Koblenz-Oslo.

Because of our planning it is necessary, that german students apply for this social event at
    Frau Nick, Room B 324,
until July, 17th and deposit a security guarantee of Euro 2,50 there, which will be paid back at participation. (We suppose that all participants of Finnland and France will take part - so an application of them is not necessary.)

Wednesday 31th July: Hike

Canceled because of the bad weather.

Accomodation:

We can make some reservations in: There is a refectory on the campus and several restaurants are nearby for lunch.

Application:

Application can be done only electronically via the following
