Important Dates
3rd February 2012:              Early Bird Registration Deadline

20th - 24th February 2012:      Winter school


We are pleased to call for participation in the 2012 IEEE
Computational Intelligence Society Winter School on Computational
Intelligence in Humanoid Robots, a unique opportunity for you and your
students to learn the fundamentals and get involved in humanoid
robots. The winter school will also highlight the most recent advances
humanoid robotics research.

There will be sessions covering the basic theory and lab activities
covering the practice of humanoid robotics. The lecture material and
exercises are tailored to match their skills and interests. Practical
exercises will be using the Robotis DARwIn-OP humanoid robot, the
latest and most advanced humanoid robot.

Each day will consist of a morning and afternoon session.  Each
morning and afternoon session will contain two 1.5 hour sessions.  The
first session will consist of a general topic on humanoid robotics,
such as active balancing, human-robot interaction, or motion planning.
 In the second session attendees will have a choice of covering more
detailed issues with the lecturer, or to go through a hands-on lab
with real humanoid robots to build and learn.

The organizers also plan several social activities and open dicussion
sessions which will allow participants to network, form new
friendships, and hopefully seed future collaborations.


Application to the winter school will require the submission of a
registration form with all relevant demographic and research interest
content.  The registration forms will be due by Feb 3rd 2012.

For more information about the registrations, please contact Jacky
Baltes (jacky at cs.umanitoba.ca)

Registration fees for the course are as follows:

University Faculty, Industry    $350/$400
Graduate/Undergraduate students $100/$125
High School Teachers/Students   $10/$25

We intend to make the winter school accessible to as many people as
possible for the lowest cost. A small number of scholarships and
registration waivers will be provided to students that would like to
attend the event.

I hope to welcome you all to Winnipeg in Feb. More sunshine hours than
Hawaii (just at -20 Cel.) :-)
