   http://www.icub.org/summerschool
   
   
Aim:
The iCub Summer School, "Veni Vidi Vici", serves to consolidate and disseminate skills in software engineering for humanoid robots. Our goal is to foster collaboration on robot software across the boundaries and lifetimes of specific platforms and projects. The school focuses on humanoid robotics and will host at least two iCub and a COMAN robot. Students will receive an initial training on the software infrastructure (middleware and tools) and will be required to work on a project of their choice. All participants are expected to be competent C/C++ programmers with an interest in working with others (and an agenda of their own). The school schedule will be organized flexibly around informal tutorials from participants on modules they are working on or interested in.

Format:
The school is structured as a series of hands-on practical laboratory sessions, and informal talks. Two full iCub humanoids and a COMAN will be available for participants to work with. We will have a dedicated local network, with wireless. Participants are expected to bring their own laptop.

Topics:
Motor control, robot design, image processing, communication, software engineering, machine learning, free software, open-source hardware.

Location:
This year the school will be hosted on the Italian Riviera, at the Fondazione Mediaterraneo in Sestri Levante, See the school website for venue details.

Timetable:
We begin the school in the morning of Monday, July 22nd 2015, and finish in the evening of Wednesday, July 31st 2015 (with people leaving during Saturday, August 1st 2015). Sunday the 26th will be a free day (individual participants may choose an alternate free day).

Cost:
The summer school registration fee is 1450 euro. This fee includes the school itself, food, and accommodation. Rooms are shared between two people. A single room is 400 euro extra (and subject to availability).

Our sponsors:
This year, the school is sponsored by the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia and jointly by the iCub Facility and Advanced Robotics Department.
