About

Summer School on Image Processing (SSIP) is a traditional, annual, gathering of researchers and professionals dealing with image analysis and machine vision. The 29th Summer School on Image Processing will be held at the University of Rijeka Faculty of Engineering in Rijeka, Croatia, between 8 and 17 July 2021. Fifty students, mostly doctoral students and young researchers, will be attending the lectures given by numerous world-renowned researchers and will be working on exciting hands-on projects under their mentorship. The students will be given the opportunity to present their work through a poster session. The summer school is co-organised by the University of Rijeka Faculty of Engineering (RITEH) and the Center for Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity (AIRI), under the auspices of the EDIH Adria initiative.

Venue

Rijeka

The summer school will take place at the Faculty of Engineering in Rijeka. The Faculty was established in 1960 and has since been a leading regional STEM research and education hub. At the present moment, approximately 2,000 engineering students are enrolled (from bachelor to doctoral). Rijeka is the principal seaport and the third-largest city in Croatia.

Social events confirmed

The organised school excursion and the farewell dinner will take place as planned. Moreover, thanks to our sponsors, participating in both social events is free for all SSIP participants.

Application deadline extended

We extended the application deadline. Students can send their applications until Friday, 28 May (AoE).

Timetable under construction

Just in case you were wondering, our experts are working diligently to build an optimal timetable using state-of-the-art constraint-based semi-supervised optimisation techniques.
