Welcome to two annual Swedish symposia on deep learning and image analysis!

This year SSDL and SSBA will be held as back-to-back events at Lund Univerity's campus in Helsingborg.

SSDL is an important Swedish forum for leading research groups in industry and academia to meet and discuss the latest trends and developments in deep learning and related areas. SSDL 2020 will feature invited talks by leading researchers in deep learning as well as oral and poster presentations of submitted abstracts.

The SSBA symposium is the premier Swedish event where researchers, industrial professionals and students gather to learn about the recent developments in the areas of image processing, computer vision, pattern recognition and related fields. SSBA 2020 features keynote speakers and oral presentations of submitted short papers.

It will be organized by the Computer vision group at LTH Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, and Swedish Society for Automated Image Analysis (SSBA).
