H2020 MSCA Innovative Training Network for the research on Advanced Hardware/Software Components for Integrated/Embedded Vision Systems

Events 2019

SciScientific course ‘Cooperative Multi-Camera Computer Vision’

This training event will be co-located with ACIVS 2019. This course includes lectures on: i) Cooperative multi-view tracking and re-identification, ii) High level scene and behaviour analysis, iii) Global scene modelling and iv) High-level metadata-based networking.


Seminar on Responsible Research and Innovation

A seminar on ‘Responsible Research and Innovation’ will be held with the participation of all the ESR’s. The Recruitment and Training Board (RTB) has to interview the ESR’s to evaluate the progress of their respective Personal Career Development Plans and to assess the quality of the training received outside of their host institution. In this context, we will organize the seminar, whose contents will include: i) ‘Open Science’ principles, ii) Public engagement, iii) Closing the gender gap and iv) Ethics in scientific research.

Events 2020

Special session on ‘CAS for the Vision-Enabled IoT’

SeOrganisation and participation of ESR’s in a Special Session on ‘Circuits and Systems for the Vision-Enabled IoT’ as part of ISCAS 2020. The IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems 2020 edition will be held in Seville and Prof. Ángel Rodríguez-Vázquez from the Institute of Microelectronics of Seville will be the General Chair. ISCAS is the flagship conference of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. This year’s edition, 2017, is dedicated to innovation. As a novelty, several innovation themes have been incorporated to the technical program to complement the traditional track scheme. Amongst the seven innovation themes: internet of things, cognitive computing & deep learning, analogue and digital senses, autonomous vehicles, robotics, and UAVs and smart buildings and cities. ACHIEVE-ETN is aligned with these innovation themes and we think ISCAS will be a good opportunity to disseminate the results of the research programme. We will propose the Special Session and try to find support from the IEEE-CAS Technical Committee on sensory Systems. Networking and practicing scientific communication skills are guaranteed.


Seminar on ‘IPR, Licensing and Transference’

This training event will be co-located with WASC 2020, or will be celebrated in Dijon, France, if co-location is not possible. It will be dedicated to IPR management and the transfer of technology, either by licensing or by the creation of technology-based start-ups. This seminar will include specific lectures on i) Management of IP Assets, ii) Technology transfer iii) Start-up creation and iv) Innovation ecosystems.


Special session & demos on ‘Cooperative Multi-Camera Systems

Organisation and participation of ESR’s in a Special Session on ‘Cooperative Multi-Camera Systems’ in ACIVS 2020. The conference topics in last year’s edition were: image and video processing, multidimensional image processing, image and video analysis and image and video coding. These topics are related with the other end of the distributed video system hierarchy. We will propose the Special Session and promote the participation and the presentation of demonstrators of the results of the individual research projects.

Events 2021

Joint Academic/Industrial Workshop in Silicon Valley

Organisation and participation of all the ESR’s in a joint Academic/Industrial Workshop to be celebrated at the Silicon Valley in California. The organiser will be Prof.  Miguel Arias-Estrada, founder of Prefixa Inc. which is one of the partner organisations in ACHIEVE-ETN. In this workshop there will be technical presentations as well as tutorial sessions oriented to introduce the ESR’s to the world of technology-based start-ups and the innovation ecosystem of the Silicon Valley. We will look for the participation of companies in our field, innovators and venture capitalists. The Workshop will be scheduled to coincide with the Embedded Vision Summit, the annual meeting of the Embedded Vision Alliance, in an attempt to draw attention to our programme. ESR’s will have the possibility to look for a continuation of the research and innovation activities from the private sector.
