The 4th Summer School in Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) will
be hosted by the Australian Centre for Field Robotics, University of Sydney
on 20-23 January 2009.





The goal of this summer school is to provide lectures and laboratory work on
the basics as well as the state-of-the-art of SLAM, with a bent towards
outdoor applications and perception in outdoor environments for autonomous


A number of leading international researchers will be presenting their ideas
and solutions to this difficult problem, focussing on ideas of machine
learning for perception and situational awareness, large scale SLAM and
Active-SLAM. The summer school will provide the opportunity for research
students who are new to, or interested in, this exciting area to see what
methods are being employed and what systems have been demonstrated, as well
as to get hands on experience with some of the algorithmic methods. It will
also provide the opportunity to interact with fellow researchers in this
field with the aim of generating collaborative initiatives.
