The EASE Fall School is the possibility to get into the exciting field of cognition-enabled everyday activity robotics. In order to gain an insight into Everyday Activity Science and Engineering, our Fall school gives doctoral students the chance to learn more about AI, robotics and the challenging field of robot manipulations. In lectures and hands-on courses, the Fall School students can exchange thoughts and ideas with our invited speakers and experts from the collaborative research center EASE. All workshops are placed at the University of Bremen.

Our Fall School will take place in the beautiful historic City of Bremen, in the Northwest of Germany. With a population of around 500,000, the city on the Weser River is a hub for economy, science, and culture.

Lectures and Hand-On Courses will be given at the TAB Building and our Robotics Labs. All is locaed on campus of University of Bremen and within short walking distance to each other. SEE CAMPUS MAP

EASE Fall School 2018-4687


Our EASE Fall School 2022 starts on September 19 and ends on September 23.

Each day will start with a lecture given by experienced researchers, invited speakers and industrial partners. In the afternoons, hands-on courses provide insights into robot manipulation and everyday activity research methods and technologies. Our program will also provide refreshments through the day, lunch each day, and a diverse and extensive cultural experience. Join us for our entertainment program, visit the Roland Statue and the famous Town Musicians of Bremen.
