2016 International Summer School on Screw-Theory Based Methods in Robotics

The Summer School is intended for graduate students and young researchers in robotics. Participants are expected from both academia and industry. The course delivers a comprehensive overview of the basic concepts and some of the main applications of screw-theory, and hence will be particularly attractive to doctoral students and young researchers in robotics and related fields, mechanical engineering, or applied mathematics. Dr Xianwen Kong from Heriot-Watt will give lectures on the creative design of parallel mechanisms.


The registration fee is 350 USD. The fee covers course materials, coffee breaks, and social events.

The payment deadline is 15 June 2016. The number of registrations is limited to 45.
