Open PhD call 2017  - Italian Institute of Technology (Pattern Analysis & Computer Vision, PAVIS) and University of Genova


Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT - www.iit.it) together with the University of Genova opened the call for the 2017 Doctoral Course on Sciences & Technologies For Electronics & Telecommunication - Curriculum in Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning (www.iit.it/phd-school).
7 PhD positions are available at the Pattern Analysis and Computer Vision (PAVIS) Dept. and at the Visual Geometry and Modeling Lab (VGM Lab) to work in Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, and more specifically on the following themes (for details see https://pavisdata.iit.it/data/phd2017/ResearchTopics_IIT-PAVIS.pdf):

Theme A - Computer vision for behavioral analysis and activity recognition
Theme B - Computer vision for the prediction of human intentions and activities
Theme C - Part-based human body modeling for Socially-Aware Computer Vision
Theme D - Crowd behavioral analysis and event recognition
Theme E - Re-identification
Theme F - Time-lapse Computer Vision for long-term 3D learning
Theme G - 3D scene understanding and spatial reasoning for autonomous systems
Theme H – Biomedical Imaging
Theme I – Connectomics
Theme L - Animal behavior analysis

More info on the above research topics can be found at https://pavisdata.iit.it/data/phd2017/ResearchTopics_IIT-PAVIS.pdf or directly asked to Prof. V. Murino or Dr. Alessio Del Bue (pavis at iit.it), or any other tutor indicated in the list of themes.
The PhD program on the listed themes will take place at the PAVIS department of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) located in Genova (www.iit.it).
The department focuses on activities related to the analysis and understanding of images, videos and patterns in general, even multidisciplinary, in collaboration with other research groups in IIT.
The PAVIS and VGM Lab staff has a wide expertise on computer vision and pattern recognition, machine learning, image processing, and related applications (mainly related to surveillance/security and biomedical tasks).
