The Summer School on Design for Interactive and Cognitive Environments (DICE) is the third edition of the Summer Schools series related with the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate on Interactive and Cognitive Environments (EMJD-ICE) after the successful summer schools organized by the Alpen-Adria Universität in Klagenfurt (AT) in 2011 and  by University of Genova in Loano in 2012.

During this edition of the ICE summer school the following topics are in the focus:

  • Multi-camera Systems
  • Modeling Interactions
  • Serious Gaming
  • Emotional Experiences
  • Networked Embedded Systems
  • Activity Recognition
  • Wearable Health Monitoring System
  • Ambient Assistive Living
  • Distributed and Adaptive Signal Processing

The EMJD ICE project has been approved and funded by the Education, Audiovisual & Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) under the coordination of the University of Genova: this project started in 2010 offering more than 40 PhD scholarships in five years. One of the key aspects of the funded PhD research is represented by design for Interactive Cognitive Environments, using techniques such as signal processing, data mining and sensing and actuating. The EMJD ICE consortium is composed by 5 different European Universities that signed a specific consortium agreement for recognizing joint or double PhD degrees for students enrolled in the program.
