This event marks the first formal cooperation between the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and the International Foundation of Robotics Research and is co-sponsored by both organizations as set forth in the Memorandum of Understanding execute by the corresponding Presidents of each Society (Prof. Paolo Dario and Prof. Oussama Khatib) signed on July 17th 2003. They have designated Prof. Henrik Christensen (KTH) and Prof. Ronald Arkin (GATECH) as the co-organizers for the first offering of this summer school.

This year's theme is "Human-Robot Interaction". The aim of the event is to provide the highest quality of education in the area through a number of internationally recognized lecturers, joint student exercises, and hand-on experience.

The first event will take place 19-23 July 2004, in the city of Volterra in Italy. The city has excellent facilities to host the event and is situated in a beautiful environment. It is expected that the school can host 30 Ph.D students / Post-doctoral students from across the world. The School is financially supported by SAIC, EURON and Scuola Superiore
Sant'Anna. We gratefully acknowledge this most valuable support.
