About the School

The Microsoft Computer Vision School is sponsored by Microsoft Research and organized in cooperation with Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU). The school follows the highly successful MIDAS 2010 and HPC 2009 schools. The 2011 Microsoft Computer Vision School will be preceded by the Summer School in Software Engineering and Verification, which will be held July 17 to 27, 2011.

The Computer Vision School is primarily aimed at Russian residents, but students residing abroad who do not need a visa to enter Russia are eligible. English is the working language of the school, but some presentations will be in Russian so the students should be fluent in both languages. Minimal necessary background includes an introductory algorithms class and basic programming skills (in C++). Accepted students pay no tuition, and the school covers their accommodations on the Moscow State University campus, meals, and social program. The students pay for their travel to Moscow and back. A limited number of partial or full travel grants may be provided.
