We have another visiting student, Prateek Singh from Galgotias College of Engineering and Technogoly, will be in the lab for the next two months working on object recognition with Brendan.
We're pleased to welcome two visiting students from the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati. Akshay Gulati will be working with Steve on calibrating and synchronising cameras, while Abhishek Sunkari will be working with Brendan and Nabeel on a mobile application for location determination. They will be with us until mid July.
Once again, the start of the academic year brings new 400-level project students to the lab. This year we have eight such students, and you can find out about their projects on the people pages.
The proceedings for the IVCNZ 2012 conference that was held here in Dunedin late last year are now available online through the ACM Digital Library. Thanks to all the authors, reviewers, attendees, and helpers who made it such a successful event.
We're pleased to have four undergraduate students working in the lab over summer. Jess is working on mobile phone localisation and motion estimation; Thomas is looking at vision-based quadrotor control; Matthew is building image distortion/smart magnification applications; and Corwin is investigating automatic musical composition.
At the end of November we hosted the Image and Vision Computing New Zealand (IVCNZ) 2012 conference. Brendan, Steven, and Jeremiah Deng from Information Science were the conference organisers, and many people from the lab helped out. Brendan, Steven, Nabeel, and Umair all had papers in the conference - see the publications page for details.
Nabeel's work is part of Living it Up/iPos, one of 5 finalists in the AppStar competion. There were over 100 applicants, and there is a $20,000 top prize.
Thomas Verbeek has been accepted to present a workshop at /dev/world 2012. This is the Apple University Consortium's conference for Mac OS, iOS and web in Melbourne, Australia.
