14th Peyresq Summer School in Signal and Images Processing

from June 30, 2019 to July 6, 2019

The GRETSI and the GdR ISIS organize the 14th Peyresq Summer School about “Geometry of Information for Signal and Images Processing” with the support of the Grenoble Alpes Data Institute. The event will take place in Peyresq from June 30 to July, 6, 2019.

The GRESTI and the GdR ISIS organize since 2006 an annual Summer School in signal and images processing. Open to any interested person (academics and industrials), it is intended mainly for PhD students or young researchers and aims to present a synthesis as well as the most recent advances in a topical research theme.


This Summer School is set in the beautiful village of Peyresq, perched at 1500 meters above sea level on a rocky outcrop of the Alpes de Haute Provence. With the support of the Grenoble Alpes Data Institute, the 2019 session will be about Geometry of information for signal and images processing.


The School will feature both tutorials and open sessions allowing participants to present their work and compare their ideas.
