Mi good friend Esteban Vázquez has recently attended the conference ICVS 2009 (7th International Conference on Computer Vision Systems) celebrated in Liège (Belgium) to present the paper "A computer vision system for visual grape grading in wine cellars", a work born from the project VITICAL. More information in publications section.
It was scheduled that I was going to attend the conference, too, but the Administration considered it would be more useful to spend that money in other things. Maybe the next time!
On 2009, July 24th, the 2007/2009 biennium students of the PhD program "Advanced Technologies in Intelligent Software Development" of the Computer Science Department of Universidade de Vigo have presented their contributions to obtain the Advanced Studies Certificate (D.E.A), a Spanish doctorate certificate given in the middle of PhD programs.
My contribution has been called 'Applications of computer vision in metrology and agrofood industry', and is a summary of my work in the projects that I have been related to in the last two years. The presentation has tried to summarize them within 10 minutes.
From now, the PhD Thesis.period is open. The objective is to finish in 2011.
