=== UPDATES regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) ===

VISMAC2020 is half a year away and hopefully the COVID-19 emergency
will be over by then. Otherwise the option of postponing VISMAC2020
will be considered, as the safety and well-being of all participants
has the highest priority. Further updates will be discussed later.

=== Aim & Scope ===

The international summer school VISMAC "VISione delle MACchine" (in
English, "Machine Vision") is organized every two years by the
"Associazione Italiana per la ricerca in Computer Vision, Pattern
recognition e machine Learning" (CVPL - ex-GIRPR) affiliated to
International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR). It
represents a stimulating opportunity for doctoral students, young
researchers from universities, research institutions and industry. The
primary objective of the Summer School is to provide a common
scientific and cultural background on the subjects of computer vision
and pattern recognition.

This edition of VISMAC will mainly focus on four renowned research
topics: Bio-imaging, Automotive, Culture Heritage, Image forensics.
