Welcome to the 2019 summer school on Generative Models 12-16th August

This will be the eleventh in a series of summer school programs organized jointly by the Image Analysis and Computer Graphics section at DTU Compute and the Image Group at the Department of Computer Science in Univeristy of Copenhagen. This year the summer school will be held at Danland Blokhus in northern Jutland.

The concept is to invite 2-4 internationally renowned experts to teach a week-long course together with local teachers from KU and DTU. The participants are a good mix of students from KU, DTU and international participants. The summer schools are held in remote locations to encourage interaction between students and teachers. In addition to bringing international expertise in to the groups, the summer schools also provide an important networking opportunity for the students. The cost of the summer school is 4 500 DKK and covers travels to and from Copenhagen, food and accommodation.

Additionally, students should bring a poster presenting their research field (preferably with an angle towards generative models).
