17th ISSNC in Lappeenranta, 9.8-13.8.2010

The East Finland Universities Graduate School in Computer Science and Engineering (ECSE) announces the 17th International Summer School in Novel Computing. This year the courses will be held at LUT Information Technology, Lappeenranta University of Technology.

Course #1: Vision for Robotic Localization and Mapping

The use of vision in robotic localization and mapping has recently become a major topic in robotics and computer vision research.

Starting from natural and artificial vision, the course provides knowledge of visual processes including attention and detection of interest points. Robotic localization and mapping problems are introduced from the probabilistic filtering viewpoint, which is currently the most prominent solution. After covering the topics individually, the course concludes by putting these topics together and more specialized topics for visual simultaneous localization and mapping are covered.

The course is lectured by Dr Matthew Johnson-Roberson and Dr Gert Kootstra from Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH), Sweden.

Further details can be found on the course page.

Course #2: Service Design

The main topics of the course are:

  • Service development and design
  • Using Design Research to study service development

The course is lectured by Professor Matti Rossi, Aalto University School of Economics, and Dr Tuure Tuunanen, University of Oulu.
