Vision and Sports is a special special kind of summer school.

In addition to a broad-range of lectures on state-of-the-art Computer Vision techniques, it offers exciting sport activities, such as Floorball, Ultimite Frisbee and Table Tennis.

What is most fun: the sports sessions are given by the same internationally renowned experts who deliver the lectures!

As a student, you get the best of both worlds: high-quality teaching on Computer Vision, and lots of fun with a variety of attractive sports. This offers plenty of opportunity for personal contact between students and teachers. How would you like to beat your teacher in a tennis match ? Or play in the same soccer team ? This, and more, will happen at VS3!

9:00 - 12:00 Lecture
12:00 - 13:00 Lunch
13:00 - 16:00 Lecture / Exercise
