Overview


Robotic Vision Summer School (RVSS)

3rd to 8th February 2019

To register your interest in this event please email rvss@roboticvision.org

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 computer vision and robotics. The summer school also provides a unique opportunity to experiment with computer vision algorithms on actual robotic hardware.

The summer school will be held at Kioloa on the NSW south coast, Australia, from Sunday, 3rd February 2019 to Friday, 8th February 2019. Bus transportation (included in the registration fee) is provided to/from Canberra airport and the Kioloa campus.

The program incorporates both talks and practical sessions run by world leading researchers in robotics and computer vision. In addition there will be ample free time during the summer school for attendees to collaborate on research projects and explore the Kioloa surroundings. Further information on speakers and the program will be available here shortly.

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.

Venue and Transport


RVSS 2019 will be held at the ANU Kioloa Coastal Campus, Australian National University. The campus offers accommodation and research facilities at a unique location extending from the beach front through a diverse ecology to thick bushland. The campus is one of Australia’s premier field stations situated on the NSW south coast between the Kioloa and Bawley Point villages, easily accessible from Canberra, Sydney, and Wollongong.

Kioloa is a small hamlet, with a population of about 200, located on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. It is pronounced by locals as ‘Ky-ola’. Click here for more about the Kioloa campus, facilities, accommodation, and travel/tourism details.

Kioloa is neighbour to some of the best beaches in Australia. For example, Batemans Bay, with its majestic seascapes and lovely beaches, is a popular holiday destination on the East coast, and is less than 50 kms from the Summer School venue. Other beaches, such as Pretty Beach, Bawley Coast, Pebbly Beach, and Termeil Beach, are just a few kilometres from the venue. Another popular beach, Jervis Bay is less than 90kms!
