Bonn Vision Workshop (BVW 2009)

sponsored by the B-IT Research School.
The Bonn Vision Workshop intends to bring together all people in Bonn and surroundings that are interested in computer vision.

New (after workshop): The workshop was a great success, almost 100 people participated.

Poster Presentations:

Everybody working in computer vision is encouraged to present a poster about her/his work in our poster session. Also posters about applications of computer vision are very welcome. The posters shall be in portrait format and can have any size up to DIN A0. If you want to present a poster, please mention this in your registration email and include the title of your poster. We hope we can present every poster, but in case of too many replies we have to select.


If you have any questions, please contact Simone Frintrop or Daniel Cremers .
