IEEE RAS Summer School Program - Call for Proposals Deadline

Deadline: 1 April 2013 for 2014 Proposals!

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:

  • The Education Committee will check the general organizational structure of the summer school, including budget aspects and guide through the general application process.
  • Suited Technical Committees (TCs) of the RAS have to endorse theproposal. Current TCs are listed at:

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:
