Unlike a typical summer school which combines multiple tutorials or pedagogical seminars, this summer school is like a graduate school course with a more coherently structured syllabus. The syllabus expands upon the content of a textbook, “Understanding vision: theory, models, and data” published by Oxford University Press 2014. The course will be taught by a team of local and international lecturers.

A typical day in summer school contains lectures, guided exercises and discussion sessions, interspersed by break time for lunch, dinner, coffee/tea, etc., for social interactions. Students are encouraged to bring their research project posters to the school for viewing and presentation during these break time exchanges — the posters will be available for viewing throughout the summer school. In exercise/discussion sessions, students can apply theoretically gained knowledge and can have opportunities for one-to-one tutorials with summer school lecturers and teaching assistants. Discussion sessions will also encourage interactions by including discussions on, e.g., controversial research issues, historical retrospectives, differences/relationships between disciplines, and relationships between theories and data.

The summer school will end with a symposium on frontier topics in systems vision science, with talks and posters by additional speakers and symposium participants. The summer school students will be invited to the symposium as participants and are welcome to submit contributions.

Our invited speakers for the summer school and symposium are Assaf Breska, Peter Dayan, Andrea van Doorn, Wolfgang Einhäuser-Treyer, Karl Gegenfurtner, Ziad Hafed, Tadashi Isa, Jan Koenderink, Kristine Krug, Hanspeter Mallot, Laurence Maloney, Pascal Mamassian, Antje Nuthmann, Daniel Osorio, Andrew Parker, Jenny Read, Alexander Schütz, Martin Sereno, Manuel Spitschan, Kristina Visscher and Li Zhaoping.
