Dear all,

The University of Saint-Etienne (France), Gjøvik University College
(Norway), the University of Granada (Spain), and the University of
Joensuu (Finland) have been approved by the EU to deliver a new two
years master programme entitled Color in Informatics and Media
Technology (CIMET), within the prestigious Erasmus Mundus programme.

Our consortium invites you or your colleagues to be a Visiting Scholar
during three months in one of our four universities, to conduct research
related to one of the following fields: Color image capture, devices and
processing; Spectral color science; Technologies and models for
multi-media systems. Four grants of 13.000 Euros are proposed per year.
As an Invited Scholar you will also contribute to the teaching of one
compulsory course or one optional specialization course among the set of
courses proposed (See http://www.master-erasmusmundus-color.eu).

Our consortium also invites you to promote this master programme in your
institution. We invite your best students to apply for this master. To
qualify for admission, applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree or
equivalent in computer science, physics, optics, imaging science, or a
related field. Admission will be based on academic excellence. 12
students from  EU countries will be admitted and 18 students from
outside EU. Scholarships (21.000 Euros by year for non EU students) are
provided for students from both groups. The study programme starts
autumn 2008. This master programme is broadly interdisciplinary,
encompassing photonics, computer vision and imaging science, computer
science and media technology as a mix of relevant theoretical and
practical knowledge. All courses will be given in English. The programme
requests high mobility, but it is possible to mainly study in one host
university and attend only one semester in another university.

Prof. Jon Y. Hardeberg
