BMVA runs an annual Computer Vision Summer School aimed at PhD students in their first year, though it will be beneficial to other researchers at an early stage in their careers. Despite the title, students from non-UK universities are welcome to attend, as well as students from UK universities. Places are limited to ensure good interaction in lab classes.

The 2017 Summer School will take place at the University of Lincoln, UK, between 3 July and 7 July. It will consist of an intensive week of lectures and lab sessions covering a wide range of topics in Computer Vision. Lecturers are researchers in field from some of the most active research groups in the UK and abroad.

In addition to the academic content, the Summer School provides a networking opportunity for students to interact with their peers, and to make contacts among those who will be the active researchers of their own generation.

The University of Lincoln is situated about 130 miles north of London. The Times newspaper refers to Lincoln as having effected “the most dramatic transformation of any university in recent times”, with more than £200 million spent on building a stunning modern campus in the heart of a beautiful and ancient small city. More details on summer school venue can be found here.
