Recommend Accommodation

We changed the hotel where plenary speakers will stay to a much safer area. The new place is Hotel Manquehue (https://www.hotelmanquehue.cl/), which is located away from the city area in which protest are still happening. We recommend international participants to use this hotel or to stay at airbnb located near this hotel.
The main venue is the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences of the Universidad de Chile (http://ingenieria.uchile.cl/english).  The exact place is the D’Etigny auditorium (see video here http://ingenieria.uchile.cl/videos/153585/fcfm-uchile-conoce-el-auditorio-enrique-detigny).  Here is some information about the campus: http://ingenieria.uchile.cl/english-version/campus/98743/about-the-campus. The campus is also away from the places where protest still take place.
Hope to seeing you in Chile for the summer school!

FIRST Call for participation 

The IEEE RAS International Summer School on “Deep Learning for Robot Vision” will be held on December 9-13, 2019 in Santiago & Rancagua, Chile.

The Summer School is co-organized by the Advanced Mining Technology Center of the Universidad de Chile, Chile and the Institute of Engineering Sciences of the Universidad de O’Higgins, Chile. It is co-funded by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) Summer School Program, it is technically sponsored by the IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Robot Learning, and it follows the successful IEEE RAS Summer School on “Robot Vision and Applications” organized in Chile in 2012.

This international Summer School targets students (Master / PhD level and last years of undergraduate), researchers and professionals interested in Robotics, Robot Vision, Deep Learning and related topics. The official language of the summer school is English, and it will include tutorial courses, keynote lectures, a student poster competition, and live demonstrations (autonomous vehicle, robot soccer, domestic robots, etc.).

The Summer School will provide a clear overview of Deep Learning methods in Robotics with a particular emphasis in robot vision, while also providing an in-depth analysis of state-of-the-art research in this area. We plan to have introductory lectures and short advance courses in the following topics: deep learning for robot vision, deep reinforcement learning, deep learning for robot vision under time & hardware constraints, deep learning for 3D reconstruction & SLAM, deep & model-based learning, deep learning for manipulation & grasping, etc.

A detailed program will be available at the Summer school website: http://robotvision2019.amtc.cl
