x. European Control Award

Dear Colleagues,

The European Control Association (EUCA) is promoting a new "European Control Award" to recognize outstanding contributions by a young researcher in the area of systems and control. The award is sponsored by the European Control Association (EUCA), and will be presented during the annual European Control Conference. The recipient will give a plenary lecture during the final day of the ECC .

Details of this award and the nomination procedure can be found at http://www.euca-control.org/eca.html

We encourage you to identify and to promote potential candidates for the European Control Award 2014, before January 15th 2014

x. IEEE Career Boosting School - Trento 10-14 Feb 2014

Carissimi,
il 10-14 febbraio prossimi si terra’ a Trento la IEEE Italy School of Career Boosting, organizzata dalla nostra Sezione. La scuola è finalizzata a fornire ai neolaureati in discipline tecnico-scientifiche delle informazioni e delle competenze “trasversali” utili nel mondo del lavoro.
L’iniziativa è finalizzata ad aumentare la visibilità della nostra Associazione e a promuovere l’iscrizione alla IEEE di giovani laureati. A questo fine confidiamo che l’idea possa essere ripresa in varie sedi dl territorio nazionale.
Nel sito della scuola potete trovare maggiori informazioni:
http://events.unitn.it/en/ieeescb2014

CHIEDO IL VOSTRO SUPPORTO PER DIFFONDERE L'INFORMAZIONE SULL’INIZIATIVA NELLE VOSTRE SEDI, CHAPTER, O STUDENT BRACHES.

Se lo ritenete utile, potete richiedere una locandina.
Di seguito alcune informazioni essenziali sulla Scuola:
- la registrazione è gratuita; il numero di allievi e’ limitato a 30 e nella selezione sara’ data priorità ai membri IEEE (si intende favorire l'iscrizione di nuovi membri);
- non ci sono costi per la Sezione; abbiamo infatti trovato localmente il supporto necessario per attivare la Scuola
- le attività saranno in italiano o in inglese
Sono chiaramente disponibile a rispondere alle vostre richieste di ulteriori chiarimenti.
Vi ringrazio per il supporto
Un caro saluto
Dario

x. RoCKIn Camp 2014 - Calls for Participation

Call for Applications
RoCKIn Camp 2014
Dept. Computer, Control and Management Engineering
Sapienza University of Rome
Via Ariosto 25, Rome, Italy
January 26th-30th

RoCKIn is short for "Robot Competitions Kick Innovation in Cognitive Systems
and Robotics" and it is an EU-funded Coordination Action aiming at the
promotion of research and education through competitions
(http://rockinrobotchallenge.eu).
The RoCKIn Camp 2014 aims at supporting the preparation of teams to
participate in the RoCKIn@Home and RoCKIn@Work challenges, the competition
events that will be organized by RoCKIn in 2014 and 2015. RoCKIn@Home and
RoCKIn@Work take inspiration from the corresponding RoboCup leagues, but
they will focus on benchmarking robotic systems and networked robots. Both
challenges require basic navigation capabilities with no restrictions on the
mobile platform, advance perception, manipulation and human-robot
interaction. RoCKIn@Home focuses on tasks that service robots execute in a
real home environment, while the tasks to be performed in RoCKIn@Work target
an industrial automation scenario.
The event is partially supported by the IEEE RAS-TEP program ( IEEE Robotics
& Automation Society Technical Education Program - Summer Schools )
The RoCKIn Camp 2014 will take place from 26th to 30th January in Rome and
is designed as a hands-on week long school, where teams acquire new
capabilities and/or improve the performance of their systems in the
competition tasks. The activities planned in the first four days of the
RoCKIn Camp 2014 address the following topics: the robot platform and the
basic software infrastructure, perception, manipulation and human robot
interaction through speech. Each topic will include introductory lectures
and practical sessions. The last day will be devoted to finalizing a
demonstration in the competition scenario.
Students and researchers, who have an interest in entering the RoCKIn@Home
and RoCKIn@Work competitions, are invited to apply for the RoCKIn Camp 2014.
We accept application in two formats:
. Team applications (for teams of 3 people, not necessarily from the same
university, but with an already established team). Team applicants are
encourage to bring their robot to be used in the practical activities, but
this is not a requirement.
. Individual applications by existing or prospective team members.
For the practical sessions, participants will be arranged into teams.
Accepted applicant teams will become RoCKIn Camp 2014 teams; individual
participants may be joining existing teams with the goal of creating
additional collaborations and opportunities. If needed, additional teams
will be created from individual applicants. Each team will be assigned a
specific task, applying modules and tools presented in the lectures. The
selection will be based on the team submission material and will also
consider formation of new teams. The expected audience will be up to 12
teams and up to 36 participants.

All successful applicants will be offered:
. Accommodation in shared rooms (including breakfast, 6 nights)
. Lunch (5 days) and 1 social dinner
. Attendance to lectures and practical sessions
In addition, the teams of 3 people that will carry a robot to be used in the
practical sessions of the Camp are entitled to receive a travel support up
to 1200 Euros (per team), and the team of 3 people that plan to attend
without a robot are entitled to support of 600 Euros (per team).
Important Dates
. Application deadline: November 20th, 2013
. Notification of acceptance: November 27th, 2013
. Event Date: January 26th-30th, 2014 (Rome, Italy)
Applications
** Applications should be submitted via http://www.dis.uniroma1.it/rockin**
Team applications should include:
. For each member, a brief CV
. A team description (pdf, maximum 4 pages) in IEEE Conference Style
(http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.htm
l), reporting: team name, affiliation, supervisor (optional), scientific
background, research objectives, expected knowledge / performance
improvement, team description (including previous experience, role and
competence of team members) and, in case the team plans to bring its own
robot, a brief description of this robot.
Individual applications should include:
. A brief CV of the applicant
. A team formation plan (pdf, maximum 4 pages) in IEEE Conference Style
(http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.htm
l), reporting: applicant's scientific background, scientific objectives,
expected knowledge acquisition and performance improvement from RoCKIn
competitions, plan about the team formation, including details about the
applicant's devised role.
