Previous IEEE-RAS/IFRR Schools:
Human Robot Interaction
Robot Design
Haptic Interaction
This is the fourth summer school offered through co-sponsorship by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) and the International Foundation of Robotics Research (IFRR). The aim of the event is to provide high quality of education in a chosen theme. This occurs through interaction with internationally distinguished researchers in an informal classroom setting as well as through joint student exercises, and hands-on experiments. The goal is not only to acquire scientific knowledge but also to interact closely with prominent instructors, and to meet leading researchers in the field.

Themes for previous years' summer schools were "Human Robot Interaction" (Volterra, Italy, 2004), "Robot Design" (Tokyo, Japan, 2005), and "Haptic Interaction" (Paris, France, 2006). The theme for this year's summer school is "Learning" and will be held in Lazise, Garda Lake, Italy between September 24-28, 2007.

Professors Paolo Fiorini, University of Verona, and Erwin Prassler, University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, have been appointed as this year's co-organizers.

It is expected that the school will host 40 Ph.D students / Post-doctoral students from across the world.

While the School is operated on the basis of tuition, a significant number of fellowships are made available by the sponsors. The School organization primarily benefits from the generous contribution of the lecturers' volunteering time.
