1st Short Spring School on Surveillance (S4) 

Modena, Italy - May 17-19 2011

Endorsed by: Video Surveillance & Video Analytics - GIRPR Technical committee
Sponsored by: EU CIPS project THIS 



This short 3-day school is meant to provide a full immersion into the state of the art of theory and practice of modern video surveillance. The school is open to PhD and undergraduate students, researchers and scholars in the field of surveillance and security, and is conceived also for technicians from both industries and public entities.

The courses of the school will be taught by very  distinguished scientists of the field, representatives of the main university research centers and companies worldwide. The envisioned lessons will tackle the problems related to surveillance from different perspectives, ranging from system installation issues to basic algorithmic components, to state-of-the-art of proposals in people detection and identification, behavior and crowd monitoring, to surveillance and forensics applications. The scope is to provide also the capabilities to build from scratch a simple video surveillance system (from object extraction to high-level scene understanding so that technical sessions in lab will be coupled to the theory sessions.

During the school, also a meeting of the TC committee and a presentation of Video Surveillancy in Italy (VISIT) projects are scheduled.
