students, friends and people interested on robotics)
First Call for Participation

The IEEE RAS Summer School on "Robot Vision and Applications" will be  
held on December 3-7, 2012 at the School of Engineering of the  
Universidad de Chile, in Santiago, Chile.

The summer school is co-funded by the recently created IEEE RAS Summer  
School Program, and it is technically sponsored by the IEEE RAS  
Technical Committee on Computer & Robot Vision and the IEEE RAS  
Education Committee. The official language of the summer school is  
English, and it will include tutorial courses, keynote lectures, a  
student poster competition, and live demonstrations (autonomous  
vehicle, robot soccer, domestic robots, quad-copters).

The IEEE RAS Summer School Program will fund travel grants for  
students not living in Chile (USD$850 for international students; USD 
$425 for students from neighbor countries), and the local organization  
will cover the registration fees of all international students.

In the next few weeks the summer school details will be made public  
(website, technical program, timeline for application to the travel  
grants, etc.)

The summer school is also sponsored by the IEEE Latin American  
Robotics Council (http://ewh.ieee.org/reg/9/robotica/), and the IEEE  
RAS Chile Chapter, and organized by the Advanced Mining Technology  
Center - AMTC of the Universidad de Chile (http://www.amtc.cl/).
