IEEE RAS Summer School on Agricultural Robotics (SSAR 2015)

2-6 February 2015
Sydney, Australia

Applications due: 1 December 2014
General enquiries: ssar2015 at acfr.usyd.edu.au


The IEEE RAS Summer School on Agricultural Robotics (SSAR 2015) is a new
summer school to be held at The University of Sydney, Australia over
five days during the southern hemisphere summer, from 2-6 February 2015.
SSAR 2015 is supported in part by the IEEE Robotics and Automation
Society and The University of Sydney.

Agricultural robotics is an area of growing interest with the potential
to bring about profound economic and social benefits. The School aims to
promote robotics research that will enable safe, efficient, and
economical production in agriculture and horticulture. The School will
consist of presentations by world experts covering a broad range of
topics in agricultural robotics, hands-on activities that encourage deep
learning, and collaboration activities including a student poster
session as well as several social events. Attendance is open to graduate
students, postdocs, academics, and industry practitioners.


The main technical objective of the School is to cover the motivation
driving research in agricultural robotics, existing projects and
results, and open research problems in key areas of agricultural
robotics. Underlying research topics include systems design of outdoor
platforms, perception in semi-structured outdoor environments, planning
and control for single and multiple robot systems, and manipulators for
harvesting and weeding.

Please check the website for updates on the detailed technical program.


Application details can be found on the SSAR 2015 website
(http://www.acfr.usyd.edu.au/education/ssar2015.shtml). Applications
will be processed as received. Spaces are limited so please send your
application as soon as possible. Applications are due by 1 December 2014.
