The 2nd International Summer School on Social Human-Robot Interaction welcomes PhD students and young researchers for an intensive five days of lectures and ateliers covering a wide range of topics in social HRI. It follows up from the 1st Summer School held at Christ’s College, Cambridge, UK.

The summer school will be held in Mariehamn, Åland, Finland from Monday 24 August to Friday 28 August 2015.

The summer school will have a wide-ranging programme of lectures, discussions and hands-on ateliers on topics such as social signal processing, robotics and autism, child-robot interaction, multi-modal communication, natural language interaction, smart environments, robot assisted therapy, interaction design for robots, tools and technologies, and ethics. The school is for participants who seek a background and hands-on experience in the interdisciplinary science and technology supporting social human-robot interaction.

Interested students need to candidate to the summer school by sending an email to socialhri2015 at gmail.com <mailto:socialhri2015 at gmail.com> with in one pdf a motivation letter, CV and contact details of a referee person (more details on website, under registration).
