Call for Participation:

--- IURS Summer School on Robotics ---

July 01-10, 2009 - New Delhi, India

Deadline for registration: June 15, 2009 (later registration is available in 
exceptional cases)

Robotics is a field that draws upon concepts from many different areas
and as such it can be hard to start working in this area without
proper introduction to related concepts. Towards this goal, IURS, a
non-profit research organization, building on its history of
conducting summer courses for 3 years is now further extending its
summer course concept to teach students not only theoretical concepts
of robotics, but also practical methods.

During the course the students will work in small teams to make their
own robots, program them and compete against other teams. Each student
participant will also be provided with a robotics kit that they may
take home along with them to work on further. All concepts taught will
include practical exercises to strongly reinforce the concepts of
robotics, embedded systems, computer vision and machine intelligence.

The topics that will be covered in this summer school include:

- Introduction to Robotics
- Robotic Locomotion
- Introduction to Microcontrollers
- Sensors and Sensor Arrays
- Autonomous Systems
- Computer Vision
- Communication Systems


Early registration for Indian residents is Rs. 8,500 and they may use
the registration form online to register.

Foreign residents must contact Anuj Sehgal at anuj at iurs.org or Shekhar
Mehta at shekhar at iurs.org for registration instructions. The
registration charges will be US$ 280 for the entire summer school and
assistance in securing accommodation for the period will also be
