ICVSS 2012

This summer was a real special summer for us Phd of MIRo Group Mattia, Nicolò and me. We had we opportunity to participate to the ICVSS 2012, the International Computer Vision Summer School organized by the University of Catania.

We were selected among many candidates, being in the end 3 of the 100 participants.

This school was organized, as the previous editions, in Sicily, in a village near Ragusa, Scicli.

In the images posted here you can see the group of students of this year and the first slide of the course.

The scholl lasted 1 week, during which we attended to different and interesting advanced courses held by the most important professors and researchers involved in fields like 3D reconstrucion, object recognition and classification, advance feature and image processing etc.

This lecture was particulary important for our group: during her speech the University of Trento was mentioned!

During the 2011 Francesco Setti worked at the Queen Mary University of London where our Garment was used to test their own algorithms. This session of test was cited and here there is a picture of this moment of proud!
