2011 IEEE CIS Summer School
"Computational Intelligence in Humanoid Robots"
Purdue University, West Lafayette
August 8-12, 2011

Call For Participation

We are pleased to call for participation a 2011 IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Summer School on computational intelligence in autonomous humanoid robotics.

  • University Faculty
  • High School Faculty
  • Undergraduate Students
  • Graduate Students
  • Advanced High School Students

The summer school session will target university faculty, graduate and undergraduate students and high school teachers and students. There will be sessions and hands on activities to expose the different level of attendee to an appropriate level of lecture and instruction. Each day will consist of a morning and afternoon session. Each morning and afternoon session will contain two 1.5 hours sessions. The first session will consist of a general topic on humanoid robotics. In the second session attendees will have a choice to attend the lecture session, on a more advanced treatment of the first session, or go through a handís on lab with humanoid robotics to build and learn. The general intent is to conduct the 2nd lecture sessions for the university participants, while the high school attendees will attend lab activities, in the second session.
