CALL FOR PARTICIPATION8th Summer School on Image and Robotics (SSIR'07) Center for Computing Research (CIC) Web Site:
The French Mexican Laboratory in Computer Science(LAFMI), the Center for Computing Research or Centro de Investigaci=F3n en Computaci=F3n CIC and the French National Institut for Research in Computer Science and Control invite you to apply to take part in the 8th Summer School on Image and Robotics (SSIR'07) to be held in Mexico city.
Mexico city is located in the center of Mexico, very close to the volcano Popocatepetl and very close from the colonial cities of Puebla (120 Km), Cuernavaca (78km) and Queretaro (219 Km).
SSIR'07 will be a 2 week-long residential summer school. The courses on this school are primarily aimed at last-year engineering, master and PhD students in image and robotics related programs abroad.
SSIR'07 will be hosted this year by the Center for Computing Research
This summer school is the eighth in the series organized in the framework of the very active cooperation between French and Mexican researchers and institutions developing computer science. An example of this cooperation has been the creation of the Mixed French-Mexican Laboratory in Computer Science (LAFMI).
The courses include general and fundamental knowledge for robot control and perception system design. This includes scene identification and modeling, robot localization, pattern recognition, path planning and execution and robot physical interactions. The formation will be articulated along four principal subjects:
Perception: image processing and computer vision. Algorithmics: motion generation, execution and control. Mobile robotics. Learning and Bayesian methods.
No prior high knowledge of robotics nor computer vision will be required. Participants will attend to general lectures and talks on more specialized research areas, making it possibly to concretely cover both research and practical subjects. Workshop sessions has been introduced in the program to allow a higher degree of interaction between students and instructors. In workshops, students are invited to present the projects they are working on or they have already participated. Please check details for workshop proposal in the Summer School Web site.
The cost of participation in the summer school is 300O Mexican pesos for students (about $275 USA) and 3750 Mexican Pesos for non students (about $340 USA). This cost will cover: - tuition, - study materials, - tourist visit and - one meal on school days.
Lodging will be possible in hotels close to the School with preferencial costs.
Please note that the maximum Summer School attendance is restricted to60 participants. Selection of participants will be carried out by a Scientific committee.
A limited number of scholarships will be granted to students. The application form can be found on the Summer School web site.Important dates: Scholarship application deadline: May 20th (Non-mexican students) May, 27th (Mexican students)
