Swiss Vision Day 2013

The first Swiss Vision Day (SVD), following up the Zurich Vision Meeting, will take place at ETH on May 15, 2013. The SVD intends to bring together vision researchers and researchers in related fields. The goal is to build a community of both academic and industrial vision researchers from the Zurich area, but other researchers from elsewhere in Switzerland and beyond are also encouraged to participate. The program will consist of a few invited presentations, included Jitendra Malik as a keynote speaker, as well as a poster session. Attendees are encouraged to present posters presenting new or recent results, or industrial activities in the area of vision.

The Swiss Vision Day is continuing to be a very successful event with over 100 participants.
