Registration is now Closed
COVID-19 notice: RVSS2021 will be conducted in a hybrid format and will include online live content and workshops at local nodes (where possible). The registration is open for Australian and international students. Groups of 4 or more students from the same city can form nodes locally and purchase the robotic platform to undertake the workshop component of the summer school. Students that are unable to form a node, can still attend the online components of the course. The registration cost is the same in all cases.
The summer school will be open to 120 qualified, motivated and pre-selected candidates. Master students, PhD students, post-docs, young researchers (both academic and industrial), and academic/industrial professionals are encouraged to apply.
Applications to attend RVSS 2021 must be received before 15 January to receive the early-bird discount. Apply well before this date to guarantee your place. Note that between December 23 2020 and January 3 2021 applications will not be processed due to the holiday break.
For more information about RVSS please read the workshop overview and information booklet. Note that the information booklet is a “live” document, this means that it will update as more information becomes available.

Non-attendance and refunds
If you are unable to attend RVSS for compassionate or legal reasons you must contact the organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Depending on the situation and how soon before the event, partial or full refunds may be possible.
Due to COVID-19 and the travel restrictions, there is no travel requirement for RVSS2021 and therefore no visa requirement.
The organisers take no responsibility for visa application processes.
