In recent years there has been enormous progress in the field of computer vision as well as in the closely related areas of image processing and computational photography. Both the quality of the algorithms and the capabilities of the hardware have been improved significantly. This seminar deals with some of the most interesting works that have been published in recent years at important international conferences and leading scientific journals.

The list of subjects includes but is not limited to:

  • Shape from Shading
  • Multiview and Photometric Stereo
  • Optical Flow and Scene Flow
  • Image Manipulation
  • Variational Methods
  • Convolutional Neural Networks

Having attended either the lecture Computer Vision or the lecture Correspondence Problems in Computer Vision is mandatory. This also holds for students from MSc InfoTech and MSc Computer Science. Literature, talks, and slides are in English.

The introductory meeting took place on Tuesday, Februray 12, 2019 at 2:00 pm in Seminar Room 0.447 (computer science building). In this meeting, topics are assigned to the participants. The slides of this meeting (information on the topics, the talk and the write-up) will be available in ILIAS.

The actual seminar will start on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm in Seminar Room 0.363 with a first talk on tips and tricks. The slides of this talk will be available here. The first talk given by the seminar participants will then follow on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm in Seminar Room 0.363.

For the write-up a LaTeX-Template is available in ILIAS. Please note that the use of this template is obligatory. Documents in MS Word or OpenOffice will not be accepted! The length of the write-up should be approx. 6-8 pages. The deadline for the submission of the write-up is three weeks after the end of the lecture period, i.e. Friday, August 9, 11:59 pm CET.

In contrast to the write-up, you can use your own template when designing your slides. For instance, you can use the PowerPoint template in ILIAS or a Latex Beamer template. For each talk a time slot of 30 minutes is allocated. Afterwards, there will be a 15 minute discussion on the topic in general and the talk in particular. By actively participating in this discussion you can improve your final grade up to 0.3 grades.

Your final slides have to be presented to your seminar supervisor not later than one week before the talk is given. It is your responsibility to schedule an appointment with your seminar supervisor in time. Of course, you can (and should) contact your supervisor in case your have questions regarding the paper, the talk, or the write up.

The seminar takes place on Tuesday, 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm in Seminar Room 0.363
