About the SoRAIM Winter School: Join us for an immersive experience at the SoRAIM Winter School, organized by the H2020-funded social robotics project SPRING. This event, held from February 19th to 23rd, 2024, in Grenoble, France, promises to be a hub of knowledge, bringing together Master and PhD students, young researchers, and engineers in the field of Socially Assistive Robots.

SoRAIM aims to foster discussion between experts in these fields and to expose students (from Master level), young researchers and engineers to highly qualified scientists and experts. It will provide opportunity to interact and discuss with several members of the project; to present your own research in the form of a poster, and to participate in wider topic discussions with your peers.

SoRAIM will provide an overview of the scientific, technological and ethical advances the project’s members have achieved. The areas of interest are wide: SoRAIM combines topics in social robotics, artificial intelligence, and multimedia. Several top-level invited speakers will introduce and discuss all relevant areas for building socially aware robots that communicate and interact with humans in a shared space. Lectures will cover the following topics:

  • Speech source localization and separation
  • Mapping and visual self-localization
  • Social-aware robot navigation
  • Tracking and analysis of human behavior
  • Dialog management, natural language understanding, and generation
  • Robotic middle-ware and software integration
  • Ethics and experimental design



Registration is free of charge BUT we ask that if you register, you attend the full programme. Travel and accommodation fees must be taken in charge on your side. Some grants will be attributed to applicants based on merit, gender and diversity criteria.

Registrations will be treated in a first come first served basis combined with merit assessment based on your CV and –if applicable (Master, PhD students)—recommendation from your supervisor.
