The 13th edition of the International Computer Vision Summer School aims to provide both an objective and clear overview and an in-depth analysis of the state-of-the-art research in Computer Vision.

The last decade has seen a revolution in the theory and application of computer vision and machine learning. In this edition, we look at the emerging Computer Vision topics after Deep Learning revolution.

The courses will be delivered by world renowned experts in the field, from both academia and industry, and will cover both theoretical and practical aspects of real Computer Vision problems as well as examples of their successful commercialisation.

The school aims to provide a stimulating opportunity for young researchers and Ph.D. students. The selected participants will benefit from direct interaction and discussions with world leaders in Computer Vision. Participants will also have the possibility to present the results of their research, and to interact with their scientific peers, in a friendly and constructive environment.

SPECIAL SESSION - Industry meets Student
In addition to the academic programme, we are organizing a special session to allow students to meet and learn about the opportunities and activities at the world leading research laboratories and companies which are exploiting computer vision.

http://iplab.dmi.unict.it/icvss2019/ReadingGroup <http://iplab.dmi.unict.it/icvss2019/ReadingGroup>

Good ideas have deep roots. Understanding such roots is key to being able to generate new ideas moving forward. The main goal of the Reading Group is to practice ways in which exploration of these roots can be performed.

The homework prior to the commencement of the school consists in studying (not just reading) one or more topics provided by the school committee, and tracing the ideas as far back as you can. See the rules of engagement for all details.

Detailed instructions with the rules of engagements will be sent to students after acceptance notification.

http://iplab.dmi.unict.it/icvss2019/EssayCompetition <http://iplab.dmi.unict.it/icvss2019/EssayCompetition>

The essay competition reflects the importance of considering the "real world" social impact of technology alongside the fundamental goals of basic R&D. 
Computer Vision is an area of scientific and technological development that will continue to have a profound impact on society. It will redefine the way in which information technology intersects and interfaces with medicine and other disciplines, it will play a key role in the care of an ageing population and it is already a fundamental aspect of modern security technology. 
Participants in the competition may write a piece of original work on a topic. Detailed instructions with the rules of engagements will be soon online.

http://iplab.dmi.unict.it/icvss2019/CallForPosters <http://iplab.dmi.unict.it/icvss2019/CallForPosters>

Accepted students may submit a poster to present their research activity. The poster should be sent before 31 May 2019, 23:59, GMT +2:00, Italy Time. Please, read the Call for Student Poster section for poster guidelines.

A subset from the submitted posters will be selected by the school committee for short oral presentation. A best presentation prize will be given to the best presentation selected by the school committee.

In amongst a packed program of over 30 hours of school activities, there will be time for a tour of the ancient and picturesque town of Ragusa Ibla (RG) including the opportunity to experience the local traditions in the form of folk dancing and a delicious feast featuring many of the local delicacies. A social dinner and a party on the beach (with Disco) are also part of the social program.
