Published on Apr 25 2009 // America, Non Degree, Scholarships in Mexico


The Mexican National Institute for Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (INAOE), the French National Institut for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA), The French Mexican Laboratory in Computer Science & Automatics (LAFMIA) and the European-Mexican Informatics Laboratory (LAEMI) invite you to take part in the 10th Summer School on Image and Robotics (SSIR 09) to be held in Santa Maria Tonantzintla, in the state of Puebla, Mexico. A limited number of scholarships will be granted to students.

Santa Maria Tonantzintla is located close to Mexico City (130 Km) and very close to Puebla City (15 Km) capital of the state of the same name.

SSIR 09 will be a 2 week-long residential summer school. The courses on this school are primarily aimed at last-year engineering, master and PhD students on image and robotics related programs abroad.

SSIR 09 will be hosted this year by the National Institute for Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (INAOE) Mexico.

This summer school is the tenth in the serie organized in the framework of the very active cooperation between French and Mexican researchers and institutions developing computer science.

The courses include general and fundamental knowledge for robot control and perception system design. This includes scene identification and modeling, robot localization, pattern recognition, path planning and execution and robot physical interactions. The formation will be articulated along four principal subjects:

  • Perception: image processing and computer vision
  • Algorithmics: motion generation, execution and control
  • Mobile robotics
  • Learning and Bayesian methods

No prior high knowledge of robotics nor computer vision will be required. Participants will attend to general lectures and talks on more specialized research areas, making it possibly to concretely cover both research and practical subjects. Workshop sessions has been introduced in the program to allow a higher degree of interaction between students and instructors. In workshops, students are invited to present the projects they are working on or they have already participated. Please check details for workshop proposal in the Summer School Web site.

The cost of participation in the summer school is $4000 MXN for students, $8000 MXN for academics and $10 000 MXN for industrials. This cost will cover:

  • tuition,
  • study materials,
  • tourist visit and
  • one meal on school days.

Lodging will be possible at INAOE and in hotels close to the School with a preferencial costs of $4550 MXN.

Please note that the maximum Summer School attendance is restricted to 60 participants. Selection of participants will be carried out by a Scientific committee.

A limited number of scholarships will be granted to students.

The application form can be found on the Summer School web site.
