Register now for 2011 Multimedia Signal Processing School

11-16 April 2011, Loughborough, UK

The Multimedia Signal Processing School (11-16 April, 2011) is a key event for researchers working in the areas of Computer Vision and Signal Processing. Courses in the areas of computational signal processing, signal and object tracking, machine vision, image and video interpreptation and multimedia data management will be taught by some of the world's leading experts in a tutorial style. Innovative R&D will be presented by research labs and leading companies in this area as part of an associated exhibition organised at Henry Ford College, Loughborough.
Selected research will be invited for full journal publication in Springer's Pattern Analysis and Applications journal and there will be three Best Research prizes. The School will be fully residential and take place in Loughborough, UK. 
Early bird registration deadline for this event is 21 December, 2010.
