CALL FOR PARTICIPATION IN SKILLS SUMMER SCHOOL 2011 - "SKILL LEARNING AND VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENTS"
Organizers: Prof. Massimo Bergamasco (Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna) Prof. Benoît Bardy (Université Montpellier 1) Dr. Teresa Gutierrez and Dr. Ana Rosa Carrillo (Fundación Tecnalia)
Place and Date: Castle of Gargonza (Arezzo, Italy) from 25th July 2011 to 30th July 2011
Funded by EC FP6 SKILLS Integrated Project
The SKILLS Project (“Multimodal Interfaces for capturing and transfer of skill ”) is funded under the 6th EC Framework Programme and is aimed at exploiting Virtual Environments and robotics technologies for capturing, storing and rendering human skills in different application domains (Sport & Entertainment, Surgery and Rehabilitation, Industrial Maintenance and Robot Programming). See http://www.skills-ip.eu/ for more info.
Several research topics in the field of motor learning, skill analysis and skill representation have been addressed in the SKILLS Project. A novel approach to the digital representation of skill has been developed and applied to specific case-studies implemented in nine physical demonstrators. Training protocols based on VE and haptics systems have been defined and evaluated on the demonstrators. The assessment of the transfer of skill in the different domains by the exploitation of VE technologies has been evaluated.
The knowledge acquired in the framework of the SKILLS Project can now be disseminated to a larger research audience than the internal SKILLS research community. The SKILLS Summer School 2011 “Skill learning and Virtual Environments” represents a first event for spreading the research results to young researchers and stimulating scientific debate on state-of-the-art topics on skill learning from a pure scientific perspective.
The attendance to the SKILLS Summer School is open to application for European and worldwide PhD students working in the fields of research related to skill learning. PhD students interested in attendance should provide a CV and a description of their research project in the form of an abstract to be later extended as a poster that will be presented during the Summer School.
Submissions of applications should be made online through the Summer School website
30th May 2011 - Deadline for Application Submission
20th June 2011 - Notification
