Welcome to the homepage for the Spring 2008 SIGCSE workshop
Computer Vision and Image Processing:
   Accessible resources for undergraduate CS

This workshop will present emerging resources for using image processing, vision, and robotics at several curricular levels:

Instructors at all experience levels - including none - are welcome. The second half is hands-on: participants will be able to explore those resources from the above list that best fit their interests. A laptop would be helpful, but is not required.


We hope you have a moment to share your thoughts on the workshop with SIGCSE and us.
