This intensive course is aimed at research students in Computer Vision and Digital Image Computing, including topics such as Image Processing and Pattern Recognition. It is jointly organised by the British Machine Vision Association and Society for Pattern Recognition (BMVA), and staff at the Centre for Imaging Sciences (formerly ISBE) at the University of Manchester.
The course is residential, spanning five days (mid-day Monday to mid-day Friday), and consists of lectures and practicals in diverse topics in Digital Image Computing. It is intended that the course will complement and extend the material in existing technical courses that many students will encounter in their first year of postgraduate training. It will provide an opportunity to broaden awareness of knowledge and techniques in Vision, Image Computing and Pattern Recognition, and to develop appropriate research skills.
Such BMVA courses have run successfully since the mid-1990’s, evolving to maintain consistency with the state of the art.
