The Robotic Vision Summer School is an event organised by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision (ACRV); a $25m national and international collaborative effort to develop the visual sensing technologies that will enable robots to ‘see’ and enter into and operate in unstructured environments. The Australian partner universities are QUT, University of Adelaide, ANU, QUT and Monash.
The Summer School will take place 18-22 April 2016 in Kioloa on the southern NSW coast. Details can be found at http://roboticvision.org/rvss-2016-registration/
A limited number of funded places are available to undergraduate students (typically in final year) who have a strong interest in robotic vision and are considering a PhD in the area in 2017, especially at one of the partner institutions.
If you would like to attend, please send the following via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by COB Tuesday 15 March 2016:
- Your academic transcript
- Your current resume
- A one-page essay explaining a) Why robotic vision is important? (500 words) b) What problem would you work on in a PhD to advance the field of robotic vision? (500 words)
Applications will be considered by the Centre Executive Committee and an outcome will be finalised by Friday 18 March 2016. Those who are successful will have their registration fee funded by the Centre (the costs of accommodation, all meals, and bus transportation to/from Canberra or Sydney) but will need to arrange and fund their travel to Canberra or Sydney.
If you have questions in advance of submitting an application, please contact Professor Ian Reid, who leads the Adelaide node of the Centre.
