The 8th ITG/VDE Graduate Summer School on Video Compression and Processing is aiming at providing a forum for informal knowledge exchange and discussion of innovative research ideas among doctoral students working in the field of image and video communication and image signal processing. The summer school atmosphere is intended to be very informal and less restrictive than a typical workshop or conference, thus stimulating discussions and inspiring joint research among the participating PhD students.

Architecture and implementation aspects

Contributions focus on novel research aspects but do not have to provide unpublished material. Presentations, posters, or demos can be an overview of the participant’s research fields including challenges, open topics, and problems in current research. The aim is to bring together young researchers with similar topics and provide a basis for fruitful scientific discussions, motivating future cooperation.
How to participate
The summer school is open for PhD and advanced master students, for Postdocs, and academic advisors working in the research areas listed. The working language at the summer school is English. Participants are encouraged to present and discuss their research in oral presentations. To apply for a presentation, participants need to submit a title, and a short abstract (approximately 200 words). Participants without a presentation are welcome and encouraged to register. Submission/Registration/Payment and Important Dates are provided in the sections below.
For the submission, a title, an abstract (200 words), the name of the author(s), and an email address and affiliation of the presenting author are required.

Best Presentation/Poster Award
Directly after the last presentation at the Summer School the participants vote democratically for their favourite presentation/poster. The two winners will receive a certificate and 250 Euro each.
Joint Research Incubator Award
Up to two awards will be given, each one comes with a certificate and a prize money of 1.000 Euro.

Due to a generous sponsorship we have the possibility to offer Joint Research Incubator Awards for SVCP participants. For this you need to team up with a SVCP colleague from an institution other than your own and develop a new idea or technology in the area of video compression and processing.

Prepare a research paper with your colleague(s) about the outcome of your joint research and submit it to a conference or journal. If this paper gets accepted for a conference or preliminarily accepted subject to a revision for a journal by the date of the next SVCP in July 2024, you may apply for the award.

For application please send your paper including acceptance notice to Prof. André Kaup, spokesperson of the ITG Technical Committee MT 2, before next SVCP in July 2024. Decision for the award is based on novelty, clarity, and team involvement and will be taken by the ITG Technical Committee MT 2.
