visum 2015 is the third VISion Understanding and Machine intelligence (visum) Summer School that targets to gather at Universidade do Porto, Portugal, Ph.D. candidates, Post-Doctoral scholars and researchers from academia and industry with research interests in computer vision and machine intelligence. 

visum will comprise three main tracks: fundamental, industrial and application topics, each one with extensive practical `hands-on’ sessions. A poster session will be organized especially dedicated, but not exclusive, to Ph.D. candidates. With this, researchers can discuss their current research works, possibly leading to significant breakthroughs in the development of their theses. In the industrial track, national and international renowned institutions will present their case studies and knowingness to the attendees. visum will have a track dedicated to applications with the aim to bridge the gap between the fundamental and industrial topics, each year with a different subject.
