Call for Participation
Intensive Programme on Computer Vision
Research Group on Digital Image Analysis and iTs Applications of the
University of Granada, Espana, the
Image Recognition Lab of the
University of Koblenz,
Germany, and the
Laboratory of Information Processing of the
Lappeenranta University of Technology
, Finland, organise an Intensive Programme on Computer Vision (IPCV'96), in
Germany, from July 21st to 27th 1996.
IPCV'96 provides intensive courses and training on selected topics
in computer vision (CV) for graduate students and young scientists
with a background in CV. The topics are chosen from spectral image
analysis, color image analysis, digital image classification, and
practical image processing. The training includes exercises in small
groups of 2 - 4 students. Participation is limited to approximately
30 students from EU countries. A few scholarships are available.

On the first day we shall present several programming exercises in
areas of CV for small groups of 2 - 4 students each. Those exercises
should lead to executable programs that shall be presented by the groups
on the final day in a session "Discussion".
Participants who successfully join the exercises receive a certificate.
Location of IPCV'96 is the campus of the University of Koblenz. You can get

The registration is on Sunday, July 21st, 18.00-20.00, in Building R (Rheinau 8)
and on Monday, July 22nd, 8.00-9.00, in Building B (Rheinau 1).
All courses take place in building B, ground floor, room number B13.
We plan a boat tour on the river Rhine and a BBQ in the evening.
We have made some reservations in a Sports Hotel (200 meters from the
location of IPCV'96) for DM 50 a night, including breakfast, for a
bed in a double-bed room, and in the Youth Hostel of Koblenz in the
famous fortress Ehrenbreitstein, high above Koblenz, for DM 21 a night,
including breakfast. There exists a public bus system from Ehrenbreitstein
to the University. There is a canteen on the campus and several
restaurants are nearby for lunch.
There are a few scholarship available as described in the Application Form.
However, the meeting is already sponsored by the University of Koblenz
allowing for this very moderate fee.
