The 2017 LASER summer school (
https://www.laser-foundation.org/) will be devoted to Software for Robotics.
It takes place from 9 to 17 September in the exceptional setting of the
Hotel del Golfo in Procchio, Elba Island, Italy.

Robotics is progressing at an amazing pace, bringing improvements to almost
areas of human activity. Today’s robotics systems rely ever more
fundamentally on complex software, raising difficult issues. The LASER 2017
summer school both covers the current state of robotics software technology
and open problems. The lecturers are top international experts with both
theoretical contributions and major practical achievements in developing
robotics systems.
The LASER school is intended for professionals from the industry (engineers
and managers) as well as university researchers, including PhD students.
Participants learn about the most important software technology advances
from the pioneers in the field. The school’s focus is applied, although
theory is welcome to establish solid foundations. The format of the school
favors extensive interaction between participants and speakers.

We have lined up an impressive roster of speakers from the leading edge of
both industry and academia:

• Davide Brugali, University of Bergamo, on Managing software variability in
robotic control systems 
• Rodolphe Gélin, Softbank Robotics
• Ashish Kapoor, Microsoft Research
• Nenad Medvidovic, University of Southern California, on Software
Architectures of Robotics Systems
• Bertrand Meyer, Politecnico di Milano & Innopolis University, on
Concurrent Object-Oriented Robotics Software
• Issa Nesnas, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, on Experiences from robotic
software development for research and planetary flight robots
• Hiroshi (“Gitchang”) Okuno, Waseda University & Kyoto University, on
Open-Sourced Robot Audition Software HARK: Capabilities and Applications

The school takes place at the magnificent Hotel del Golfo (
kK6N0IQtmCFM821gL-twsLoqqS6repM9QXglD8U&e=> http://www.hoteldelgolfo.it/) in
the Gulf of Procchio, Elba. Along with an intensive scientific program,
participants will have time to enjoy the countless natural and cultural
riches of this wonderful, history-laden jewel of the Mediterranean.
