Mini-Workshop on 'Low power and adaptive computer vision for scene understanding’

Date: Saturday 28 January 2017
Time: 09.00 AM to 04.45 PM
Venue: Mercure Sheffield St Paul's Hotel and Spa, 119 Norfolk St, Sheffield S1 2JE, UK

This mini-workshop is jointly funded by ViiHM (Visual Image Interpretation inHumans and Machines), an EPSRC network for Biological and Computer Vision, and the Department of Computing at Sheffield Hallam. The proposed workshop differs from traditional presentation style workshop structure and aims to engage participants by a number of brainstorming sessions and discussions in a non-academic setting. 

The possible outcomes of the proposed workshop include a) to outline challenges and research directions, b) multi-discipline review paper (white paper), c) to form interdisciplinary collaboration and future proposal submission and d) to engage researchers from diverse background to work towards the workshop theme.

Guest Speakers

Professor Wayne Luk, Imperial College (High performance custom computing)
Professor Jenny Reads, Newcastle University (Vision Science)


Free to attend. Limited funding is available to cover travel and accommodation (email Priority will be given to participants travelling greater distances.

The number of delegates is restricted to maximum of 30 attendees. The workshop is suitable for (not limited to) academics, research associates and PhD students in the field of image processing, vision science, real-time computing, psychology and robotics.
