On behalf of the Autonomous Systems Lab, I have the pleasure to cordially
invite you to the following summer school at ETH Zurich from July 4th
through July 8th, 2011:
"Autonomous Micro Aerial Vehicles: Design, Perception, and Control"
For more info and applications:
The school is designed for graduate students of all levels. However, a solid
background in engineering will enable you to profit most from the lectures
and exercises. In the courses, we seek to take your existing engineering
skills and extend them to the most important fundamentals in this thrilling
field. We will show you the current state of the art in each area, and
expose you to inspiring researchers from all over the world. To this end,
the school will feature five full days of tutorials, lectures and hands-on
exercises, and several case studies which will be presented by
internationally recognized experts in the field.

Deadline for the application is April 15th, 2011. Successful candidates
will be notified by April 22th and need to register and pay the course-fee
by May 6.
The cost for the summer school is 300 CHF.
This will cover all course materials, as well as breakfast, coffee-breaks,
and two dinners during the school. Lunch and dinner is available at the
ETH-Cafeterias and in nearby venues from ~15 CHF (including a drink). For
the whole week, we put the additional living
expenses at around CHF 200.
We will provide basic accommodation for all participants in a remodeled
former air-raid shelter in the basement of the Computer Science building (no
windows). This is right next door to the course venue, and will feature
dormitory style rooms with shared bathrooms. Pillows, blankets, and sheets
will be provided. This accommodation will be free of charge for all
participants. It will be open from Sunday evening to Saturday morning, to
accommodate travel that requires an additional night in Zurich. If more
privacy and comfort is desired, students must organize alternative
accommodation on their own responsibility and expense (double rooms in
Zurich start at around 65 CHF per night and person).
