SOCORO 2010 - Social and Cognitive Robotics Summer School - July 13-17th,
2010 - Iasi, Romania

Social robots that interact with humans have thus become an important focus
of robotics research. In the past few years a great deal of research has
been directed toward creating socially intelligent robots capable of
exhibiting natural-appearing social and cognitive qualities.

This summer school is the second edition of the summer school. The first
edition was a success and consisted of lectures, lab/demonstrations, and
interactive sessions.

In this second edition, over an intensive period of 5 days, students will
receive a variety of lectures on all aspects of HRI from
internationally-leading researchers. In addition, laboratory sessions will
give students hands-on experience. Interaction and discussion will be
encouraged at all stages.

To apply, PhD students should submit:
. a short CV
. a research summary. This can consist of either a relevant paper or a
one-page research plan for students starting their PhD

Non-students should just provide a relevant publication. Priority will be
given to students.

All the applications need to be sent to both Prof. Adriana Tapus
(tapus(at)ensta.fr) and Prof. Ioan Doroftei (idorofte(at)mail.tuiasi.ro).

SOCORO 2010 has applied for IEEE RAS Support, which may result in
scholarships, decision expected in May after ICRA 2010.

Important Dates:
. Application Submission Deadline: June 1st, 2010
. Notification of Acceptance: June 15th, 2010
