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 and Machine Learning 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.
