Last 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
