Australian National University (ANU) campus in Canberra
The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision presents the Robotic Vision Summer School (RVSS) in Canberra, Australia. The ability to see is the remaining technological roadblock to the ubiquitous deployment of robots into society. 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 from Monday 1 February 2021 to Friday 5 February 2021. This year RVSS adopts a unique, inclusive and COVID-19 compliant hybrid format. The core content will be delivered online and the workshop will be held in physical nodes (ANU, QUT, Monash and Adelaide).
The program incorporates both talks and practical sessions run by world-leading researchers in robotics and computer vision. This is an international summer school which offers a tremendous opportunity to broaden the educational experience and professional networks for attendees.
The program is targeted at the level of later-year Masters and new PhD students in the Australian system. Attendees are expected at minimum to have a background in computer/electrical engineering at a level of an undergraduate degree or equivalent experience. Mature students with non-standard backgrounds are welcome. Attendees will be expected to undertake team-based computer programming tasks in the workshop activities. Later year higher degree students will still benefit from the in-depth technical talks and face-to-face meeting with world-recognised peers and are welcome to apply, however, priority will be given to early year students if numbers are tight.
