Acceptance List: April 22, 2019

Symposium: June 27-28, 2019

Summer School Dates: June 29-July 01, 2019

Swiss Search and Rescue Robotics Week (ARCHE
July 01-06,2019




Robotics has become one of the biggest fields of education and research
worldwide. The newly established Center for Robotics at ETH Zurich is
committed to providing continued education and training to the young
generations of researchers and practitioners. This summer school offers
lectures and hands-on tutorials on fundamental concepts that every
roboticist around the world should possess.

All summer school participants will get the opportunity to attend a two-day
ETH Robotics Symposium on June 27th-28th, where leading researchers from
across the world will share their experiences, results, and views on the
different fields of robotics.

From June 29th to July 1st, tutorials as well as  hands-on sessions with
cutting edge robotics platforms will take place at a dedicated education
and training center for search and rescue. Attendees will get the
opportunity to team up with each other and program a (semi)-autonomous
rough-terrain UGV, to extensively test it in a variety of environments, and
finally to challenge colleagues in a competition.

On the last official day of the summer school, a number of research teams
from Switzerland and around Europe will join the training site for the
week-long exercise sessions ARCHE (Advanced Robotic Capabilities for
Hazardous Environments
Legged robots, teleoperated excavators, amphibious vehicles, UAVs and many
other robots will be deployed in collapsed, burning, or flooded buildings
and specialists from different organizations will share their knowledge.

The participants of the summer school have the opportunity to extend their
stay to  attend this ARCHE event during that week or to continue
development on their own robots. ARCHE will end on Saturday, July 6th with
a public event.
