The Young Researcher Vision Camp

The aim of this "Camp" is to give young researchers (MSc and PhD students, and early postdocs) an opportunity to present themselves and their work to fellow researchers, to allow them to build and strengthen personal networks in an international environment. It is intend to give as many young researchers as possible an opportunity to present their  research results. Since this group of people is usually not very affluent, there is only a small registration fee.

The workshop is organized and supported by the European Vision Institute to promote Vision Research within Europe

Apart from presentations, there are usually round table discussions with a number of senior scientists from different European countries. Topics such as "Careers in Research: Academia vs. Industry", "personal motivation", "family and research", "additional skills", etc. will be discussed, each with experts in the respective field. We hope that these discussions will enable young scientists to benefit from the wealth of experience senior researchers have acquired during their careers.
