My Remarkable Summer School Experiences

Jul 17 2016

My extraordinary journey started at the eleventh Microsoft Research Summer School, which took place in Cambridge, UK. I had the opportunity to attend a series of talks of academic interest and transferable skills conducted by world leader researchers from Microsoft. Additionally, I was able to present my research during a poster session where I had the chance to meet several students and Microsoft researchers working on related research topics. Overall, it was a remarkable summer school that balanced between professional development and social activities. (See some snapshots below!)


The next experience included my visit to the fabulous city of Sicily, Italy, where the International Computer Vision Summer School (ICVSS) 2016 was hosted. This summer school is one of the most renowned in Computer Vision with a selection process that included only 30% of the total student candidates to attend the event. The tenth edition of the ICVSS provided me an objective and clear overview of the state-of-the-art research in Computer Vision. At the same time, I had a golden opportunity to meet and learn about internship opportunities at world leading companies such as Google, Facebook, and Microsoft. Doubtless, ICVSS is a must to attend for all Computer Vision Ph.D. Students. (See some photos below)
