Computer vision is the science and technology of making machines that see.
It is concerned with the theory, design and implementation of algorithms that
can automatically process visual data to recognize objects, track and recover
their shape and spatial layout.
The International Computer Vision Summer School - ICVSS was established
in 2007 to provide both an objective and clear overview and an in-depth
analysis of the state-of-the-art research in Computer Vision. The courses
are delivered by world renowned experts in the field, from both academia
and industry, and cover both theoretical and practical aspects of real Computer
Vision problems. The school is organized every year by University
of Cambridge (Computer Vision and Robotics Group) and University of
Catania (Image Processing Lab). Different topics are covered each year. A
summary of the past Computer Vision Summer Schools can be found at:
This edited volume contains a selection of articles covering some of the
talks and tutorials held during the first two editions of the school on topics
such as Recognition, Registration and Reconstruction. The chapters provide
an in-depth overview of these challenging areas with key references to the
