5. EECI-GSC-2012 Prof. Murray - L'Aquila

Cari Colleghi,
 
come forse saprete, tra febbraio e maggio 2012 si terra' l'edizione 2012 della EECI Graduate School www.eeci-institute.eu/GSC2012 ll programma completo della Scuola e' al link: www.eeci-institute.eu/EECI-docs2/EECI-Modules-2012.pdf

Il modulo che ha come docente Richard MURRAY (Caltech) sul tema "Specification, design and verification of distributed control systems" si terra' all'Università dell'Aquila, presso il DEWS, nella settimana dal 14 al 18 maggio 2012.
 
Penso che questa possa essere un'occasione importante per i dottorandi / post-docs, dato che l'argomento e' di grande interesse e Richard non e' soltanto un ricercatore illustre ma anche un docente molto apprezzato dai giovani per la qualità dei suoi corsi. Anche per noi all'Aquila sarebbe importante riuscire ad attrarre un numero consistente di studenti, dato che stiamo facendo molti sforzi per rendere piu' vivace il nostro ambiente di lavoro, che negli ultimi due anni ha subito duri colpi. Vi sarei grata quindi se poteste attrarre l'attenzione dei vostri studenti di dottorato e post-docs. Le iscrizioni scadono il 16 dicembre, quindi tra poco piu' di un mese.
 
Naturalmente sono a disposizione per informazioni supplementari.
 
Un carissimo saluto a tutti,
 
Marika

6. Call for the 2012 Georges Giralt PhD Award

    <http://www.euron.org/activities/phdaward>.
The submission deadline is 31st December, 2011.

All PhD theses defended between December 2010 and December 2011 (included)
at one of the EURON member institutes
    <http://www.euron.org/members/index>
are eligible for this Award. We welcome theses with strong theoretical
contributions, but certainly also with a focus on professional
applications, or with a high degree of multi-disciplinarity showing how
robotics technologies can be 'exported' to new domains.

The reward will be given to the winner(s) at the occasion of the European
Robotics Forum, in Odense, Denmark, March 5-7 2012. The selection of the
finalists will be announced mid-February 2012, and these finalists are
expected to give a 20 minutes presentation of their research at the Forum,
since part of the Award evaluation will be done on the basis of that oral
presentation.

The jury of this event consists of the following members:
Sarthak Misra, Geert De Cubber, Fabio Bonsignorio, Krzysztof Kozlowski,
Paolo Rocco, Erwin Prassler, Costas Neocleous, Catalin Buiu, Giuseppina
Gini, Jose A. Castellanos, Daniele Nardi, Alessandro Saffiotti, Aydan
Erkmen, Jorge Dias, Angel P. del Pobil, Gerhard Kraetzschmar, Herman
Bruyninckx.
