Doctoral Consortium



The MAPR Doctoral Consortium will provide a unique opportunity to students who are close to finishing, or who have very recently finished, their doctorate degree, to interact with renowned and experienced researchers in the field, and discuss with them their ongoing research and career plans. One senior member of the community will be assigned as mentor for each student based on similarity of research interests. At the meeting, each student will present a poster either overviewing his or her thesis research, which will be discussed with the mentors and other participants.



All Ph.D. students in computer vision, pattern recognition, image processing and machine learning are eligible. We encourage submissions from PhD students who are already working on their dissertations with some results already published or close to publication
