Technical Education Program - Proposal Deadline
From May 01, 2014 01:00 until May 01, 2014 23:00
In efforts to receive sufficient proposals from all Geographic Areas of RAS, the Deadline for 2015 Proposals has been extended to 1 May 2014.
Each year, the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society offers financial support for three Technical Education Programs (RAS-TEP), formerly Summer Schools. In efforts to bring RAS closer to its membership, these programs rotate though the Americas, Europe and Asia and Pacific.
The RAS-TEP program is jointly run by the Member Activities Board (MAB) and the Technical Activities Board (TAB). The program is intended to sponsor or co-sponsor up to three summer schools per year around the world. One of the three summer schools will be fully sponsored by RAS to a level of $40,000, and it will rotate annually through RAS' three geographical regions in a round robin fashion. The other two summer schools will be cosponsored with interested organizations in the other two geographical regions up to a level of $20,000 each.
The review of summer school proposals is based on assessments from two different viewpoints, the first one with respect to the general structure, including organizational matters and budget, and the second one with respect to the technical content:
Suited Technical Committees (TCs) of the RAS have to endorse the proposal. Current TCs are listed at: www.ieee-ras.org/technical-committees.
Deadlines for the submission of 2015 proposals:
- Deadline: 1 April 2014
- Decision: ICRA 2014
- Full sponsorship ($40,000) is available for for Area 2 (Europe, Africa, Middle East)
