If you are a robotics researcher who enjoys the finer things in life, like free software, open source hardware, humanoid robots and Italian beaches, you will definitely want to check out 'Veni Vidi Vici 2011', the iCub Summer School.
At the summer school / hackathon there will be two iCub robots on hand for researchers to work with, along with informal talks and hands-on lab sessions. Participants should be competent in programming in C/C++ and able to work as part of a team.
The school will run from July 18th to the 28th, and you need to apply by May 11th, 2011.
Registration is 1300 euros and includes the school, food and shared accommodations.
The official call for participants can be found here.
