Second 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  
international students.
