Robotic Vision Summer School, Kioloa, Australia, 12-17 March 2017

The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision presents Robotic Vision Summer School (RVSS) in Kioloa, Australia.

The ability to see is the remaining technological roadblock to the ubiquitous deployment of robots into society. The Robotic Vision Summer School (RVSS) provides a premium venue for graduate students and industry researchers to learn about fundamental and advanced topics in robotic vision. The technical program is presented by world’s leading experts from the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision and international guests. The summer school offers participants:

  • In-depth tutorial material on fundamentals of computer vision and robotics.
  • State-of-the-art presentations on the latest developments in robotic vision.
  • Introduction to application domains and applied robotic vision technologies.
  • A unique opportunity to experiment with computer vision algorithms on actual robotic hardware.
  • Chance to meet and network with present day and the next generation of robotic vision experts.

The summer school is held annually at the Kioloa campus, Australian National University on the NSW south coast, Australia. This is an international summer school targeting Masters (later-year)/PhD students, academics, and industrial researchers.
