NEW: HOMECOMING PRESENTATION. Students returning from research visits will have the opportunity to give a Homecoming Presentation as a part of the CVC Reading Group. This will allow them to share their experiences, to share insights on how to organize research (i.e. what we can learn from the host institute), and to give a short summery of their research.

In the reading group we discuss recent papers in computer vision. We schedule two papers per session and will keep the meeting within one hour.

Some things to keep in mind.

  • We encourage students to pick papers from the main conferences (ICCV, ECCV, CVPR, NIPS, SIGGRAPH), but good papers from other venues/journals are welcome of course.
  • Presentations should be 15-20 minutes, in addition there will be time for discussion.
  • Email the authors of the paper explaining that you plan to present their paper in the reading group, often they will send you their slides/poster/extra material which can help you prepare your presentation.
  • Often adding several slides to ¬†introduce the topic within a wider context or to highlight the relevance for your own work will enhance the presentation.
  • End the presentation with a conclusion slide, what are the strong and weak points of the paper according to you (not the authors).
  • Especially oral presentations and best-paper-awards are good candidate papers to be presented.
  • If for some reason you cannot present on the day assigned to you in the schedule, change dates with another student asap.
  • Discuss the paper you choose with your supervisor.
  • Be present 10 minutes before the presentation to test your presentation.
