8th International UJI Robotics School on Rescue Robotics

 

September 15-19, 2008 - Hotel Intur Bonaire (Benicassim, Spain)

 

For the 8th edition of its well-known summer school, the Intelligent Robotics Lab of Jaume-I University, in collaboration with the Sheffield-Hallam University (UK) organizes a tutorial on the engineering, scientific and application domain of rescue robotics, sponsored by the IST-FP6 Guardians and ViewFinder EU Cognitive Systems projects.

The school instructors are leading world experts in the field, who work actively in past and present cross-disciplinary projects involving partners from technology and emergency responders.

 

Aims and scope

Rescue robotics has emerged in recent years as an active research field, providing valuable assistance in urban rescue tasks after catastrophes (e.g. earthquakes) or incidents like fire or accidents involving hazardous materials.

According to this trend, the school will provide to an audience with an engineering background the basic insights about the technology, science, and domain issues that may be instrumental in successfully applying rescue robotics in the real world.

Graduate robotics students will have a unique training opportunity in this emergent and fast-evolving domain, closely interacting for one week with some of the top-level researchers in the world in this field, as well as with fellow students.
