Extended Deadline: IEEE RAS Summer School Proposals for 2013 from the Americas

Call for Proposals: IEEE RAS Summer School Program

Proposals for 2013 from Americas only!!!  Extended Deadline: 30. November 2012

This Call for Proposals is specifically targeted at Summer Schools taking place in 2013 in the Americas. Proposals for years other than 2013 or for regions other than the Americas have to be submitted according to the regular deadlines listed below.

The deadline for proposals for 2013 from the Americas for support from the IEEE RAS Summer School program is extended to 30 November 2012. Events that are interested in receiving up to $20,000 for e.g. participant support are encouraged to apply.

There is no extension of the deadlines for Asia and Europe for 2013 proposals. The deadline for all three regions, i.e., Americas, Asia, and Europe, is 1 April from 2013 on. So, the deadline for proposals for 2014 is still 1 April 2013.

The IEEE RAS Summer School program is jointly run by the Member Activities Board (MAB) and the Technical Activities Board (TAB) of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS). 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:

1) The Education Committee will check the general organizational structure of the summer school, including budget aspects and guide through the general application process. 

2) Suited Technical Committees (TCs) of the RAS have to endorse the proposal. Current TCs are listed at http://www.ieee-ras.org/technical/committees.html.

More detailed information can be found in the Education Column of the March 2012 issue of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine (RAM) [1]; the column is open access and can be downloaded from http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?tp=&arnumber=6174338.
