This is an excellent opportunity to have a taste of studying and living in the UK, in the historic city of Lincoln.
The Summer School 2011 will provide a challenging combination of taught, practical and hands-on activities, with concluding mini projects and presentations. There will be an emphasis on the Computer Graphics and vision with focus on interactive applications such as games and virtual reality. Participants will be exposed to a range of technologies, including MotionCapture, and research activities carried out in Lincoln. They will also be fully supported and have access to the School’s computing and research laboratories as well as other University’s facilities. The overall program falls within the following topics:
• Introduction to Computer Graphics. • Interactive Graphics and Visualisation applications. • Introduction to Image Processing/Computer Vision. • Non-conventional Interactions (e.g. WiiMote, Vision-based interaction).
The program will also include:
• Local/regional tours/trips, including scientific sites, and Guest Speakers. • Career Advice, Employability and Skills development. (e.g. Academic Writing, CV writing, Interview tips)
The Summer School is designed for students and recent graduates who are interested in computer graphics, computer vision, visualisation, games, and virtual reality. Tutors include research-active academics and researchers with various cultural and international backgrounds. A certificate of attendance will be presented to all those who successfully complete the Summer School.
For the best benefits, participants are expected to have a good level of programming (C/C++) and Mathematics. Places will be limited on a first come first serve basis.
