Recent Results in Pattern Recognition and Computer Vision, Spring 2006

Course schedule

Course start: Wednesday April 19, 2006 at 13:15.
There will be five two-hour seminars during the period May 9 to June 13, 2006.
See schedule below.
The seminars will be held in the CBA seminar room.


The goal of the course is to widen the patricipants' knowledge in pattern recognition and computer vision.


PRCV handbook      

The content is selected chapters from the book
Handbook of Pattern Recognition and Computer Vision,
3rd Edition, C. H. Chen and P. S. P. Wang, editors, World Scientific, 2005

Prior knowledge

The course is intended for PhD students in image analysis and related areas. 10 credits in image analysis are required.


To obtain 3 credits the following should be accomplished

Suggestion for study

We suggest that the course participants meet informally a couple of times per week to discuss the studied material, especially during the study period (April 19 to May 23), but also throughout the course to better digest the material.

Welcome to the course!
