Call for Applications- 2020 IEEE RAS Summer School on Multi-Robot Systems

Following the great success of Summer Schools in Singapore, 2016 and in Prague, 2019, the MRS RAS technical committee is organizing 2020 IEEE RAS Summer School on Multi-Robot Systems which will be held again at the campus of Czech Technical University located at the heart of the historic city of Prague.

The Summer School aims to promote the newest achievements in multi-robot systems and swarm robotics to students, academic researchers, and industrial practitioners to enable putting systems of cooperating robots into practice. The content of the Summer School will be focused but not limited to systems of cooperating aerial vehicles. The topics addressed by well-recognized experts in the field of Multi-Robot Systems are composed to provide the participants necessary knowledge for understanding the available theory and for realization real-world experiments with a fleet of autonomous micro aerial vehicles in the last day of the Summer School.

The call for applications is now open:
