IURS Summer School on Advanced Intelligent Systems

July 01-10, 2009 - New Delhi, India

Deadline for registration: June 25, 2009

Intelligent systems find applications in practically every field of
study. With growing interest in robotics, wireless sensor networks,
machine learning and other areas and also the boundaries between these
different fields reducing due to many crossover concepts. It is now
important for researchers from one of these fields to at least have an
understanding of not only theoretical, but practical concepts from
these areas as well.

Towards this goal, IURS, a non-profit research organization, building
on its history of conducting summer courses for 3 years is now also
organizing an advanced intelligent systems summer school.

At this school, students will not only get to hear lectures that teach
them concepts from areas of intelligent systems, but they will also
participate in practical exercises to learn about methods and
practices as well. Furthermore, at the end of the summer school they
will work along with the faculty on research projects that will have
publishable goals.

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

- Sensor Networks
- Robotic Sensing
- Localization and Mapping
- Computer Vision
- Image Processing
- Machine Learning
- Applications of concepts

The final project shortlisted at the moment involves (but is not limited to):

- 3D point cloud registration
- Robot localization
- Map building
- Uncertainty visualization
- Invariant feature extraction from 3D point clouds


Registration for Indian residents is Rs. 6,500 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$ 250 for the entire summer school and
assistance in securing accommodation for the period will also be
