ASCI.Open 2015

20th Annual Conference of the
Advanced School for Computing and Imaging

De Flint
March 23, 2015


The Advanced School for Computing and Imaging (ASCI) is pleased to announce its 20th annual conference.

The ASCI.Open conference provides a forum for PhD students and senior members of the ASCI School alike to report on and discuss their research projects. ASCI.Open 2015 will feature a keynote talk, oral presentations 
and a social event. Members of the ASCI community are invited to submit full papers before the submission deadline.

ASCI.Open (Monday, March 23, 2015) is organised the day before ICT.Open (March 24-25, 2015) in the same location: De Flint in Amersfoort, and everyone is highly encouraged to attend both ASCI.Open and ICT.Open 2015. Simultaneous submission of research contributions as an extended abstract to ICT.Open and as a full paper to ASCI.Open is explicitly encouraged.



ASCI will reimburse the conference fee and accommodation expenses up to 
EUR 60.00 per person per night for all members participating in ICT.Open and 
ASCI.Open 2015. First, claim such cost from your own university; after the
conference ASCI will contact your group in order to settle this.
