The research field of Visual Computing encompasses everything graphical in computer science - from the synthesis and processing of graphical content to its human consumption. This broad spectrum includes multiple other fields that constitute research disciplines in their own right, such as perception, visualization, multimedia, virtual and augmented reality, as well as human-computer-interaction. The first International Summer School on Visual Computing held from August 17-21, 2015 at the Fraunhofer IGD Rostock, Germany aimed to give an overview of this broad field to graduate students from Rostock, Germany, and abroad. A week-long program of lectures and research talks by invited speakers introduced participating students into the subjects of visual perception and cognition, eye tracking, raster image databases, multimedia retrieval, computer vision, human-computer-interaction, mobile and wearable computing, and visual analytics. Each afternoon, the participating students had the opportunity to present their own research in posters and talks. Sessions with helpful tips and tricks on how to go about PhD level research, writing, and presentation, as well as an open lab tour rounded off the summer school program. The post-conference proceedings at hand contain a selection of the research presented by the participants during that week. The 13 papers are grouped into three thematic sections: image generation, image analysis, and image usage.
