The Winter School will involve a set of international experts in the field from the clinical, scientific and engineering communities. The list of confirmed lecturers is the following:

  • Eugenio Guglielmelli (Università Campus Bio-Medico, Roma, Italy)
  • Hermano Igo Krebs (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA)
  • Michelle Johnson (Marquette University, USA)
  • Jane Burridge (Univeristy of Shouthampton, UK)
  • William Harwin (University of Reading, UK)
  • Robert Riener (ETH Zürich, Switzerland)
  • Henning Schmidt (Fraunhofer IPK, Germany)
  • Etienne Burdet (Imperial College, UK)
  • Xavier Navarro (Institut de Neurociències, Barcelona, Spain)
  • Maria Chiara Carroza(Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Italy)
  • Sunil K. Agrawal(Univ of Delaware, USA)

In addition to lectures by such well-known experts, the summer school will include practical exercises. The organisers of these activities at the UMH Labs are the following:

  • Nicolás M. García (Miguel Hernández University of Elche, Spain)
  • José M. Sabater (Miguel Hernández University of Elche, Spain)
  • José M. Azorín (Miguel Hernández University of Elche, Spain)
  • Carlos Pérez (Miguel Hernández University of Elche, Spain)

Lectures will be given in English. The instruction will take place for a period of one week from Sunday to Friday (March 30- April 4, 2008).

In adition, the students will be invited to submit their works on their research activities releated with the topic of the school as a short paper and to present it on Friday afternoon as a poster before the Panel Discussion.
