This is a placeholder for a list of participants at the VVV11 summer school. It usually gets filled up at the first day of school, and is strictly voluntary. We're expecting 40-something people this year. Feel free of course to add yourself before arrival at the school. For inspiration, see VVV10/VVV09/VVV08/VVV07/VVV06).

 For editing, you can ask for your own username/password (email 
 paulfitz@liralab.it to get an account) or use the username "vvv11" and password
 "s*str*" with the first star replaced with "e" and the last star
 replaced with "i".

If you would like to, include in your profile a list of possible ideas for collaboration.

 IIT and Univ. of Genoa, pasa_(at)_liralab.it, homepage
 I am senior scientist at the IIT and assistant professor at the University 
 of Genoa where I teach courses on anthropomorphic robotics and intelligent systems 
 for the bioengineering curricula. I hold a MS with honors (in 1994) and PhD (in 2000) 
 in electronic engineering both from the University of Genoa. From 2001 to 2002 I was
 postdoctoral associate at the MIT AI-Lab where I worked on various humanoid robotic 
 platforms. I am assistant professor at the University of Genoa since 2005 and with 
 IIT since 2006. My research activities are in the fields of biologically motivated 
 and humanoid robotics and in particular in developing life-long developing artificial 
 systems that show some of the abilities of natural systems.

Francesca Stramandinoli

  I work at the University of Plymouth as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher
  in the European project RobotDoC that is an Initial Training Network on 
  developmental robotics. My research topic is about the grounding of language 
  in humanoid robots, with particular attention to abstract words.

Mike Ciaraldi

  I am a Professor of Practice in the Computer Science Department of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in
  Worcester, MA USA. I am part of the inter-disciplinary team which created the WPI Robotics Engineering (RBE) program, 
  the first in the US to offer a four-year degree in RBE.
  Some of my projects:
  -- Moonraker: Winner of the NASA Centennial Challenge Lunar Regolith Excavation contest, 2009.
  -- Prometheus: Rookie of the Year, Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition, 2010.
  -- Oryx: Winner, NASA RASC-AL sample return competition, 2011.
