The USA-Sino Computer Vision summer school has become a mutually beneficial annual event for computer vision researchers and students from both the US and China. From the vision summer school in Lotus Hill Institute (2005) to our recent sequence of the USA-Sino summer schools in vision, learning and pattern recognition (VLPR) in Beijing (2009), Xi'an (2010) and Chengdu (2011), we have successfully brought accumulatively more than 60 top-level computer vision researchers together with hundreds of students from both China and US. The impact and reputation of the VLPR summer school sequence have grown rapidly, and VLPR 2012 continues this positive trend. US NSF, NSFC and Fudan University provide travel and boarding funds for US student attendees to VLPR 2012 summer school, apply now!

Scientific Exchange

The theme of this summer school reflects the growing international trend of interdisciplinary research in biomedical image and smart health, and facilitates collaborative efforts between science and technology, computer science and medicine/biology, and US and China. Not simply a series of lectures, VLPR 2012 also offers the opportunity to meet researchers in biomedical image research from the U.S. and China. With the growing American-Chinese technology collaborations, VLPR summer school 2012 at Fudan University provides a great platform of information exchange, in-depth discussions and professional networking for the researchers and students alike.

Cultural Exchange - China and the USA

Experience not just the academic side of China, but also the cultural and social side with Shanghai's wide array of attractions, both the very ancient and the very modern.
