York, 1-4 December, 2015
We invite applications from researchers to attend a series of short courses ministered by some of the leaders on verification of mobile and autonomous robots in the UK. Partial funding is available to support participation of research students. The event is funded by the EPSRC via the University of York and via EPSRC's Network on the Verification and Validation of Autonomous Systems.
