2 PhD open positions for the Joint Doctoral Programme in Interactive and Cognitive Environments (JD ICE) - University of Genova (Italy) and Queen Mary University of London
*Two PhD scholarships* are available within the *Joint Doctoral
Programme in Interactive and Cognitive Environments* (JD ICE) that is a
PhD programme organised by the Department of Electrical, Electronic,
Telecommunications Engineering and Naval Architecture at *University of
Genoa* (http://www.isip40.it/) and the Centre for Intelligent Sensing at
*Queen Mary University of London* (http://cis.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/) .
*Applications are invited for *2 PhD open position*.
JD ICE provides PhD training in the fields of multimedia signal
processing, data fusion, computer vision, cognitive dynamic systems and
machine learning, and offers advanced research projects designed for
ambitious students willing to become word-leading researchers. PhD
students will benefit from a joint-supervision model and will spend part
of their PhD programme in the London, UK and part in Genoa, Italy.
The ISIP40 group, active in the DITEN department in the Faculty of
Engineering of the University of Genoa has focused its attention mostly on:
* Cognitive Dynamic Systems
* Multisensor Signal Processing for Surveillance
* Software and Cognitive Radio
* Bayesian Object and Situation assessment
* Interactive and Cognitive Environments
