The fifth meeting of the Czech and Slovak computer graphics and computer vision people in the mountains. The event will take place January 31 - February 3, 2018 in Low Tatras, Slovakia in a nice hotel:
The goal of the meeting is to encourage exchange of ideas between researchers and practitioners in the fields of computer graphics and computer vision from across the Czech and Slovak Republics and beyond. There will be many (optional) outdoor activities possible during the day and fruitful talks, discussions and socializing in the afternoons and evenings.
The expected price is around 140 EUR per person (3 nights, 3x half board). Please let us know if you are interested to attend the event (please provide also your talk proposal, deadline: November 12, 2017).
Matthias Hullin is a professor of Digital Material Appearance at the University of Bonn, a post he took after research stages at the Max Planck Center for Visual Computing and Communication and the University of British Columbia. He obtained a doctorate in computer science from Saarland University (2010) with a dissertation that was awarded the Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society, and a Diplom in physics from the University of Kaiserslautern (2007). His research is focused on the interface between computer graphics and the physics of light.
Niloy Mitra is a professor of Geometry Processing, UCL Department of Computer Science.
Niloy's research primarily centers around algorithmic issues in shape analysis and geometry processing. He is also interested in applying the analysis findings (e.g., relations, constraints, etc.) towards next generation design tools including smart shape synthesis and fabrication-aware functional model design.
Ondřej Chum received the MSc degree in computer science from Charles University, Prague, in 2001 and the PhD degree from the Czech Technical University in Prague, in 2005. From 2005 to 2006, he was a research Fellow at the Centre for Machine Perception, Czech Technical University. From 2006 to 2007 he was a post-doc at the Visual Geometry Group, University of Oxford, UK. Recently, he is now an associate professor back at the Centre for Machine Perception. His research interests include object recognition, large-scale image and particular-object retrieval, invariant feature detection, and RANSAC-type optimization. He has coorganized the “25 years of RANSAC” Workshop in conjunction with CVPR 2006, Computer Vision Winter Workshop 2006, and Vision and Sports Summer School (VS3) in Prague 2012 and 2014. He was the recipient of the runner up award for the “2012 Outstanding Young Researcher in Image & Vision Computing” by the Journal of Image and Vision Computing for researchers within seven years of their PhD, and the Best Paper Prize at the British Machine Vision Conference in 2002. In 2013, he was awarded ERC-CZ grant.
Krystian Mikolajczyk did his undergraduate study at the University of Science and Technology (AGH) in Krakow, Poland. He completed his PhD degree at the Institute National Polytechnique de Grenoble, France. He then worked as a research assistant in INRIA, University of Oxford and Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany), before joining the University of Surrey as a Lecturer, and Imperial College London as a Reader in 2015. His main area of expertise is in image and video recognition, in particular in problems related to matching, representation and learning. He participated in a number of EU and UK projects in the area of image and video analysis. He publishes in computer vision, pattern recognition and machine learning forums. He has served in various roles at major international conferences co-chairing British Machine Vision Conference 2012, 2017 and IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal-Based Surveillance 2013. In 2014 he received Longuet-Higgins Prize awarded by the Technical Committee on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence of the IEEE Computer Society.
