AIM@SHAPE Summer School - Scope
Application of 3D Shapes: Ontologies, Software Tools and Industrial Case Studies (July 19-25, 2006, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia)
|NAVIGATION:||Scope||Training||Lecturers ||Venue||Registration ||Organizer ||Program |
Since its start in January 2004, the EU FP6 Network of Excellence AIM@SHAPE www.aimatshape.net has – beyond the pursuit of joint research in shape modeling – emphasized the use of knowledge management concepts like ontologies in shape modeling, and also started to establish a considerable eScience infrastructure such as repositories for shapes and shape modeling tools. The relevance of shapes for industrial applications has been in focus as well.
The purpose of this school is to give PhD students and Post Docs and opportunity
- to get acquainted with the ongoing network activities
- to find out how they can participate in them
- to get hands-on training how they can use the network infrastructure like shape and tool repositories
- to receive an introduction into ontologies and their use
- to listen to and discuss with some leading experts in the field
- to learn about important applications of shapes
While some program items are mainly targeted at younger
researchers, senior ones are also most welcome at this event to
explore the possibilities not only of active participation in the
Researcher Group (NIRG) or the
Group (NIG), but also to discuss opportunities for cooperation in
future projects, as FP7, the European Commission's Seventh Framework
Program, is approaching fast. The network's EC project officer will
be present to contribute latest news to that aspect of the program.
And Tallinn is a very attractive location to visit, too: www.tourism.tallinn.ee.
The program will consist of invited lecturers, hands-on training
sessions and discussions, including a one-day workshop for PhD
students (and early Post Docs) to contribute their own results. It is
expected that each participant brings his/her own laptop to work with
in the practical training sessions. While the school is mainly
intended for researchers in shape modeling and requires no prior
experience in knowledge technology, it should be interesting for KT
researchers as well to learn more about a specific application domain.
