UCL Computer Vision Reading Group

We meet every Wednesday in Room 405, 66-72 Gower Street, 1600-1700 to discuss recent (and sometimes old) papers in computer vision and related topics.

If you would like to present or suggest a paper, topic, or speaker, please feel free to contact me at d.worrall at cs.ucl.ac.uk.
