International School on Image Processing [see the poster]

5th edition

July 15th – 30th, 2013


Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (IESC), building N, room Nii10 (2nd floor). Address: Politehnicii 1, Brasov 500019.


All the participants are kindly asked to register by sending an e-mail to the organizer (Mihai.Ivanovici (at) and by paying the registration fee prior to the beginning of the school. Registration fee: 1000 RON. Attendance fee is 50 RON for the students of Transilvania University of Brasov.


Participants should have previously attended the following courses or at least to have some knowledge in the following fields: mathematics (statistics), algorithms & complexity, C/C++ programming, digital signal processing fundamentals.


At the end of the school the participants will be required to pass a test consisting of questions and exercises related to the topics presented during the school. Based on the results of the test, the participants will receive certificates proving that they graduated this intensive course on image processing. The certificates will state the grade obtained by the participants, along with the curricula of the school and the name of the lecturers.
