This summer I'm going to take part at the International Computer Vision Summer School. I have already been accepted and registered for it. I'm really looking forward this event and hope it will not be too hot in July in Sicily. =)
I am now seeking for a room-mate, because accommodation is quite expensive there. If you are a participant too and have a similar problem, please feel free to contact me!
One of the activities of the school is a reading group leaded by Prof. Stefano Soatto. As a homework, we need to investigate the reference trees on three certain subjects. Moreover, there will be prizes for students who will have discovered papers that could not be found via standard search engines. I suppose I have a bonus here: Russian science has been isolated from the, well, science due to that iron curtain thing (it is still quite isolated, by inertia). So, I just need to dig in a library and find something appropriate in old Soviet journals.
