Summer School Programme

There will be a poster session Monday evening where all participants can present their research and get to know each other. The best posters will win the Ono robots constructed during the summerschool (so foresee an extra empty spot of 45cmx38cmx30cm to carry Ono home 😉 ). Posters portrait dimensions: size A0 or A1 (printing at the venue is not possible).

The social robot Ono, the prize for the best posters
