Information Session
 Ingkarni Wardli, 5.57
When: Friday 2nd Sept 12noon

If you have a passion for Computer Vision, Robotics or Machine Learning, then you should consider pursuing a PhD in an area that intersects all three.  The Australian Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision is a 7 year program funded by the Australian Research Council to develop the visual sensing technologies that will enable robots to operate in unstructured, uncertain environments. University of Adelaide hosts one of the four nodes of the Centre (in the School of Computer Science, with the other nodes located at QUT, ANU and Monash).

The Centre would welcome applications from prospective PhD students with APAs (and can fund a top-up to the scholarship), or from overseas students for whom we have a number of full stipend scholarships at the APA level.

ARC Laureate Professor Ian Reid leads the Adelaide node of the Centre and will hold an information session at 12 on Friday 2nd Sept in 5.57 of Ingkarni Wardli.  If you would like to know more about the Centre's objectives, people and cool research, please come to this session.   Open to all ECMS students, but we particularly encourage final year students who are considering a PhD.  If you cannot attend, please feel free to email Ian directly at for more information about the Centre.
