Summer School on Advances in Image, Motion and Video Coding and Processing

Location and Date: Copenhagen, Denmark, August 22-26, 2011 

Motion and optical flow are basic elements of video analysis and video coding. Video coding is a prominent application of motion analysis and image and video coding provides a good setting for benchmarking and improving image and video models and techniques. 

The areas of image and video coding and analysis have a large number of similar goals, but often very different approaches to reaching them. In this summer school, we will let the two communities meet for exchange of ideas on related topics.

The PhD course will consist of lectures given by members of the research groups in Coding at DTU Fotonik, Technical University of Denmark and in Image Analysis at DIKU, Copenhagen University as well as invited speakers. Please visit for more details.
