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.
