Vision and Sports is a special special kind of summer school. In 
addition to a broad-range of lectures on state-of-the-art Computer 
Vision techniques, it offers exciting sport activities, such as Tennis, 
Volleyball and Climbing. Sports are organized by the same 
internationally renowned experts who deliver the lectures. The school 
offers the best of both worlds to participants: high-quality teaching on 
Computer Vision, and lots of fun with a variety of attractive sports. 
This offers plenty of opportunity for personal contact between students 
and teachers. The Vision and Sports Summer School covers a broad range 
of subjects, reflecting the diversity of Computer Vision. Each lecture 
will cover both basic aspects and state-of-the-art research. Every day 
there are two Computer Vision classes and one sports session. The 
classes include both lectures and practical exercises. The school is 
open to about 60 participants, and is targeted mainly to young 
researchers (Master and PhD students in particular). Following the 
summer school, on Saturday there will be a workshop where the teachers 
will present their latest research work. Students can attend this 
exciting workshop for free and have the opportunity to see some cutting 
edge computer vision research.
