Summer school
Human sensing and applications to robotics and haptic displays
Dates: May 18-22, 2015
Venue: Université Lille 1, Lille, France
Contact: biosensing-school [at] imperial [dot] ac [dot] uk

We invite application for summer school on bioinspired sensing and
its applications.

This school will enable interested early or confirmed students
and researchers to learn from all modalities of biological sensing, how
they can be applied to robotics and haptics. The topics of the schools are:

- tactile perception and illusions
- tactile displays
- biomechanics of touch
- functional neuroimaging for studying sensing
- machine learning methods for tactile data
- audition in humans and robots
- vision and sense of motion in biological systems and robots
- multimodal sensory integration in humans and robots
- robotic hands and applications

All registered students will have an opportunity to present their
research during a dedicated poster session. The preliminary programme is
available at:
