The 2010 Wales RIVIC Visual Computing Graduate School is a four-day meeting, bringing distinguished international scientists in computer graphics, computer vision, image processing, visualization, and other areas of visual computing together to share their expertise, knowledge, wisdom, and vision with young researchers (e.g. PhD students and PostDocs). The school provides a stimulating opportunity for young researchers and Ph.D. students. The participants will benefit from direct interaction and discussions with leaders in Visual Computing. Participants will also have the possibility to present the results of their research, and to interact with their scientific peers, in a friendly and constructive environment. The Graduate School offers scientists and researchers a rare opportunity to explore the future research directions of visual computing, especially the convergence of its different areas. The event features insightful talks from keynote speakers, research presentations, discussion panels, and PhD forums. Its informal social events provide young researchers a valuable opportunity to exchange research experience and explore potentials for collaboration.
