2019 RAS Technical Education Programs - Call for Proposals

Each year, the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society offers financial support
for three *Technical Education Programs* (RAS-TEP), also known as "Summer
Schools." In an effort to bring RAS closer to its membership, three
programs are held each year: one in the Americas, one in
Europe/MiddleEast/Africa, and one in Asia/Pacific Rim.

The RAS-TEP program is jointly run by the *RAS Member Activities Board*
(MAB) and the *RAS Technical Activities Board* (TAB). These Boards will
review proposals and select the TEP programs each year. The program
sponsors up to three schools per year around the world. Each of the three
Technical Education Programs (Summer Schools) will receive *up to
USD$25,000.00* in funding from RAS. Funding should be used to reduce the
event cost for RAS Student Members, and to assist in securing high quality

The review of TEP proposals is based on assessments from two different
viewpoints, the first one with respect to the general structure, including
organizational matters and budget, and the second one with respect to the
technical content. One or more relevant RAS Technical Committees (TCs) must
endorse all submitted proposals. Current TCs are listed at:
