The Latin American Summer School on Cognitive 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:
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.
The inaugural version of the LACORO is co-located with the
10th IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning (ICDL)
We are mindful of uncertainty prompted by the outbreak of COVID-19 and we cannot forecast what impact it may have in the coming weeks and months. Our primary concern is the health and safety of all involved in LACORO 2020.
Chile has closed its borders since the 18th of March until further notice and many other countries around the globe have similar travel restrictions in place. Despite this, we are still organizing LACORO, albeit as a webinar.
We extended the registration deadline until the 23rd August 2020 . This Webinar will be free of charge.
Stay safe, stay informed!Last updated: Monday, 3rd of July 2020.
