The 5th Summer School on Video Compression and Processing (SVCP) 2019 of the ITG/VDE will be held from 17-19 June 2019 at the University of Konstanz organized by Prof. Dietmar Saupe and his team and supported by the SFB-TRR 161.

The purpose of the summer school is to provide an informal forum for young researchers working in visual computing, in particular video and compression related topics to exchange ideas, establish personal contacts and to identify common research interests. The summer school is open for PhD- and advanced master students, for post docs, and academic advisors working in the research areas listed. The working language will be English

The invited speaker will be Christopher Schoers from Disney Research in Zürich, and he will speak on Neural Video Processing in Post Production.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Compression algorithms for 2D, 3D, 360-degree and multi-view video and images
  • Machine learning for image, video and data processing and compression
  • Deep learning for video compression
  • Image and video signal analysis
  • Quality assessment / Quality of experience
  • Virtual, mixed and augmented reality
  • Data compression, transmission and processing
  • Coding and processing of multispectral data

The joint accommodation for all participants will be at the ibis Hotel Konstanz.

Please visit the summer school website for registration and more information


Anyone who is interested in participating in SVCP 2019 is invited to come.

The registration fee is  € 270 including accommodation for two nights (sharing a twin room) and  € 350 with a single room, meals, a social event with a boat ride on the lake, and summer school participation. For participants of the University of Konstanz it is € 100, without a hotel room.
