The International Summer School on Smart Cars 2015 will be held at Seggau Castle, Graz, Austria, Sept 6 – 12, 2015.
Smart and self-driving cars will change our daily lives significantly and are expected to have a transformational impact on society by offering more convenience in traveling, accident prevention, improved road logistics, and completely self-organizing traffic with a vast number of fully autonomous and seamlessly interacting cars.
Realizing these visions requires substantial research on automotive embedded computing and networking in order to manage the significantly increased complexity of real-time information processing, to deal with the dynamics of highly mobile networks among vehicles and the surrounding infrastructure, and to provide the dependability and trustworthiness required for safe traffic and efficient transportation.
Topics covered by the Summer School are:
* Autonomous driving and platooning
* Smart infrastructure and smart environments
* Vehicular networks and car2X communication
* Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)
* Automotive hardware/software codesign
* Automotive safety and security
* HIL testing and simulation
* Experience from real-world scenarios
The goal of this summer school is to survey fundamental and applied aspects of embedded automotive computing and networking for Smart Cars, as well as to identify novel opportunities and research directions in related areas through a series of lectures held by international experts. Participants will experience various relevant technologies during hands-on courses and will be given a chance to present their own work during seminar modules. The school will provide a great opportunity to network with other people working in the field, to meet distinguished scholars, and to establish contacts for potential future research collaborations.
The target audience are postgraduate students, PhD students, master students, and young researchers from universities and industry all over the world who either want to enter or who already have experience in this exciting research area.
Prospective participants need to upload a description of their interests and background as described on the school website. Participants will be selected based on their work area and background, geographic distribution, and date of application.
