The Latin American Summer School on Robotics (LACORO) aims to make cutting-edge knowledge of Artificial Intelligence for Robotics Applications more accessible in the Southern Hemisphere. Moreover, we want to foster intercultural student collaboration within and outside the Americas.

Our aims are:

  • to build a sustainable community of students, academics and professionals in Artificial Intelligence for Robotics, particularly Cognitive Inspired Aspects of AI.
  • to make cutting-edge scientific topics accessible to everyone.
  • to foster intercultural student collaboration within and outside the Americas.

LACORO will include cutting-edge lectures and tutorials on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics and aspects of Human Cognition. Moreover, we will host mentoring sessions for both scientific topics and other aspects of the academic research world.

We believe it is imperative to host these events in Latin America to establish a robust research community on the American continent. Moreover, we think hosting educational events such as Summer Schools in Latin America is essential because most events are held in the Northern Hemisphere and often, the schedule conflicts with teaching activities in the Southern Hemisphere.


LACORO targets later-year Engineering Students, MSc students, PhD Students, Academics and Professionals. Although LACORO will be organized in Latin America, LACORO is open to participants worldwide.
