The role of the tutorials is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and as a meeting point for the community. Tutorials complement the depth-oriented technical sessions by providing participants with broad overviews of emerging fields. A tutorial can be scheduled for 1.5 or 3 hours.

Brief Bio
Joanna Isabelle Olszewska is a Senior Lecturer in United Kingdom. She obtained BEng, MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering and DEA and PhD degrees in Computer Science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland and the University of Louvain (UCL), Belgium, respectively. Her research interests include algorithms, signal and image processing, computer vision, pattern recognition, and artificial intelligence. She has been a Program Committee Member of many technical conferences such as IJCAI, and she has chaired more than fifty research seminar presentations and international conference sessions.

Intelligent Vision Systems are increasingly present in our Society from street surveillance cameras to indoor sport training set-ups, from drones to companion robots. To ensure an efficient communication between these systems and operating agents, ontologies provide an effective and interoperable solution well suited for real-world interactions. Thus, this tutorial introduces the topic of ontologies for intelligent vision systems in light of the main challenges in that research field and the developed solutions and standards based on computer vision and artificial intelligence methods.
