This is the list of participants at the VVV15 summer school. Please add yourself before arriving at the school. For inspiration, see VVV14/VVV13/VVV12/VVV11/VVV10/VVV09/VVV08/VVV07/VVV06).

 For editing use credentials that were sent to you by email (or ask the organizers).

There are sometimes edits lost with many people editing the same wiki page at once with the same username. Suggestion: add an empty section for yourself first, like this:

 == Your Name ==     

Then save, and click the link to edit that specific section.

If you would like to, include in your profile a list of possible ideas for collaboration, see also the Task pages: Tasks.

Lorenzo Natale


I received MS degree in Electronic Engineering in 2000 and Ph.D. in Robotics in 2004 from the University of Genoa. I am researcher at IIT, in the iCub Facility, website. I was previously Postdoctoral researcher at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, and at the University of Genoa. I have been invited professor at the University of Genova for the courses artificial and intelligent systems and anthropomorphic robotics. I am interested in tactile and visual perception, and software engineering for robotics.

Francesca Stramandinoli


I hold a MS degree in Automation Engineering from the University of Calabria (Italy) and a Ph.D. in Computing from Plymouth University (UK) achieved within the RobotDoC ITN working as Marie Curie ESR. I worked as Research Assistant at the University of Calabria (Italy) and Research Engineer at United Technologies Systems & Controls Engineering (ALES S.r.l. - Italy). Since November 2014, I am a Marie Curie ER within the RoboTAsk project at IIT (RBCS Department) where I work on the grounding of action words in the iCub humanoid robot through the modelling of tool affordances.

Serena Ivaldi


I am a researcher in INRIA in the Larsen Team in Nancy (France) since november 2014. I was previously a postdoc with the University of TU Darmstadt (Germany) and the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics of University Pierre Marie Curie (Paris, France). I did my PhD in IIT in the RBCS Department under the supervision of Giorgio Metta. I have been working with iCub since my PhD ^__^ My research interest is modelling, learning and control of human-robot interaction and physical interaction between robot, humans and environment.
