Seminar Description

The seminar will be on different (sub-)topics of image processing, providing a view into the inner workings of basic image analysis, enhancing, and manipulation techniques and setting the basis for more advanced Computer Vision approaches. We will largely follow the lines of popular textbooks (details TBA). The proseminar is addressed at Bachelor students of Computer Science and Technik-Kommunikation in their 2nd-4th semester. Typically, each participant will work on one topic and summarize it in a seminar paper and a short presentation. For some topics, two participants will work together on a single topic and then summarize different aspects of it in two different seminar papers and two different successive presentations. The seminar papers and the presentations can be in German or in English.

Seminar Procedure

Two seminar talks will be held at each meeting. Participation in all meetings is mandatory for achieving the credit. The literature should then be discussed with the instructor. The instructors of the different topics are to be announced.
