IAPR International Summer School on
Machine and Vision Intelligence

Vico Equense, Naples (Italy)
August 27-31, 2018

Endorsed by: IAPR TC-03 and TC-12
Contact: vismac2018 at uniparthenope.it


Registration: by 29th July 2018
Poster submission: by 10th August 2018
School: August 27-31, 2018


The aim of the IAPR Summer School on Machine and Vision Intelligence 
(VISMAC 2018) is to provide in-depth courses of the state-of-the-art 
research in Artificial Intelligence, and specifically Deep Learning, for 
Computer Vision with a global scope aiming at updating participants 
about the fundamentals and most recent advances of different deep 
learning architectures, which will be explained through three types of 
mainstream applications, to image processing, pattern recognition and 
computer vision.


CVPRLab, Department of Science and Technologies, University of Naples 


The school is endorsed by the ‘Computer Vision, Pattern recognition and 
machine Learning Italian Association’ (CVPL) and by the International 
Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), under the Technical Committees
- IAPR-TC03 - Neural Networks & Computational Intelligence
- IAPR-TC12 - Multimedia and Visual Information Systems


The school will be hosted by Hotel Oriente in Vico Equense at Sorrento 
Coast (https://www.hoteloriente.it) near Sorrento, Pompei, Capri, 
Naples, one of the most beautiful 4-star hotels of the Sorrento coast, 
combined with the history of the ancient town of noble Etruscan origin.
The structure is reminiscent of the architecture of a fishing village, 
with rooms connected by staircases and terraces, to fully revive the 
typical Sorrento Peninsula.


The courses will be delivered by world renowned experts in the field and 
will cover both theoretical and practical aspects of Artificial 
Intelligence in Computer Vision problems together with advanced homework 
A (preliminary) list of the topics covered by the lectures is the 

Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning in Vision
Interpreting and Explaining Deep Models in Computer Vision
 From task-specific to task-agnostic deep learning in computer vision
Robust Scene Analysis
Multi-Class Multi-Instance Model Fitting
Deep Learning for Affective Computing
Automatic Selection, Configuration and Composition of ML Algorithms
Challenges and Opportunities in Machine Vision
Background Subtraction and Initialization Models
Tracking and Detection
3D Reconstruction and Global Averaging

The labs will include TensorFlow, Cafe, Theano, Torch sessions for 
computer vision, alngo with homework sessions about well known 
challenges and benchmarks like, among others, ChaLearn Looking at 
People, Visual Object Tracking (VOT), Change Detection (CDnet), Emotion 
Recognition in the Wild Challenge (EmotiW).


The list of (provisionary) speakers is the following:

Wojciech Samek, Fraunhofer HHI, Germany
Iasonas Kokkinos, University College London, UK
Stefan Roth,Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany
Jiri Matas, Czech Technical University, Czech Republic
Björn Schuller, University of Augsburg, Germany
Hugo Jair Escalante, NIAOE, México
Silvio Savarese, Stanford University, US
Alberto Del Bimbo - University of Florence, Italy
Thierry Bouwmans, Université de La Rochelle, France
Benjamin Laugraud, University of Liège, Belgium
Luka Cehovin Zajc, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
Srinivasa Venu Madhav Govindu, Indian Institute of Science, India


The registration fees include: Access to VISMAC 2018, Welcome kit, 
Coffee breaks, Lunches, Social Dinner, Guided tour and Certificate of 
€ 400 for GIRPR/IAPR members (without accommodation)
€ 800* for  GIRPR/IAPR members with accommodation in shared double room 
at School venue from August 29 (arrival) to September 1 (departure)
€ 500 for Non GIRPR/IAPR members (without accommodation)
€ 900* for Non GIRPR/IAPR members with accommodation in shared double 
room at School venue from August 29 (arrival) to September 1 (departure)
*(an extra fee of 300 € is due for single room occupancy)


The school offers a limited number of partial scholarships for students 
requesting a financial support. The scholarships are gratefully awarded 
by IAPR and CVPL (the Italian IAPR branch) and will cover either part of 
the fees (which include the full board accommodation and the school 
courses). A filled application form must be sent to prof. Alfredo 
Petrosino, together with a curriculum vitae, via e-mail to: 
vismac2018 at uniparthenope.it


Lectures together with selected school participant works will be 
published in printed and in electronic version in the Springer’s Lecture 
Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS) by Springer Verlag. Selected 
works will have chance of publication in international journal special 


- PhD Forum: students present their research work to leading 
researchers. Submission of a poster is required.
- Reading Group: students will be asked to study one or more research 
papers and discuss their perspective view.
- Hackathon: In 24 hours the participants should develop a prototype for 
Interaction (to make easier ideas and information sharing), 
Sustainability (to support an eco sustainable development), Quality of 
Life (to contribute to the improvement of the life style).
- Guided Tour: A guided tour at the excavation of Pompeii will be 
scheduled on one day afternoon during the school.

Awards and prizes will be offered. Detail on the school website.
