Optimization in Computer Vision

Copenhagen, May 19th to 23rd 2008

School credit and requirements

In order to get credit for this course you should successfully complete the exercises, and hand in a SMALL report on each of them. This report should basically correspond to your lab notes, in that it should contain your results and a few sentences commenting upon and interpreting these. This means there is no need for a theory or a background chapter, etc.

The deadline for the exercise reports is august first. If you do the exercises in a group your are encouraged to only submit one report per group. Please provide a mailing address in the report, to which the certificate of participation should be sent.

For successful completion of the school (handing in the exercises) we will grant you 3 ECTS points.


The lectures will take place in Auditorium 12 of building 308 at the Campus of the Technical University of Denmark (DTU):
