>From July 25 to 29, 2011, the STIFF/VIACTORS Summer School on Impedance
will be organised on the Fraueninsel in Bavaria, Germany.

This summer school concentrates on fundamentals and latest results in
human and robotic impedance, as well as on studying the transfer of
one to the other.

The current programme includes the following keynote speakers:

   Alin Albu-Schäffer, DLR
   Antonio Bicchi, Pisa University
   Etienne Burdet, Imperial College
   Neville Hogan, MIT
   Oussama Khatib, Stanford University

   Sethu Vijayakumar, University of Edinburgh

The five-day programme will include the above keynote talks, a number of
in-depth presentations of current research on the area of human and
robotic impedance, and a hands-on robot programming lab.  Audience: Ph.D.
students, postdocs, and senior researchers working on robot control,
neuroscience, and biophysics.
