Description:
Heterogeneous networks of sensors and mobile robots open avenues for a class of novel applications. Tasks ranging from environmental monitoring to user support within emergency-response scenarios require fundamental, multidisciplinary research, typically spanning Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering topics in robotics, control, communication and middleware.

This international summer school sets out to survey important areas of research in this domain as well as to identify novel opportunities and research directions.

The summer school will also provide a good opportunity to get to know researchers working in this field, to meet distinguished scholars, and to establish contacts that may lead to research collaborations in the future.

Participation:
The intended audience are young researchers and PhD students from universities and industrial laboratories around the world. Prospective participants should apply online as soon as possible and before July 28. Applications will be answered quickly after submission.

The summer school registration fee is 450 Euro. This fee includes the school itself, lunch and coffee breaks, and accommodation. Rooms are shared between two people. A single room is 200 Euro extra (and subject to availability).

Organization:
The summer school is organized by the Research Training Group on "Cooperative, Adaptive and Responsive Monitoring in Mixed Mode Environments" funded by the German Research Foundation DFG and collaborating research groups from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

Important Dates:
Application deadline: July 28th, 2010
Summer school: August 23rd-27th, 2010
