Proceedings of the International Summer School on Visual Computing 2015
August 17-21, 2015 in Rostock, Germany
The research field of Visual Computing encompasses everything graphical in computer science - from the synthesis and processing of graphical content to its human consumption. This broad spectrum includes multiple other fields that constitute research disciplines in their own right, such as perception, visualization, multimedia, virtual and augmented reality, as well as human-computer interaction. The first International Summer School on Visual Computing held from August 17-21, 2015 at the Fraunhofer IGD Rostock, Germany aimed to give an overview of this broad field to graduate students from Rostock, Germany, and abroad. A week-long program of lectures and research talks by invited speakers introduced participating students into the subjects of visual perception and cognition, eye tracking, raster image databases, multimedia retrieval, computer vision, human-computer-interaction, mobile and wearable computing, and visual analytics. Each afternoon, the participating students had the opportunity to present their own research in posters and talks. Sessions with helpful tips and tricks on how to go about PhD level research, writing, and presentation, as well as an open lab tour rounded off the summer school program.
