The International Summer School on Screw-Theory Based Methods in Robotics (Summer Screws) has been organized since 2009. Previous editions are held at University of Genoa (Italy) in 2009 and 2012, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China) in 2010, Federal University of Santa Catarina (Brazil) in 2013, University of Bologna (Italy) in 2014, Beihang University (China) in 2015, École de technologie supérieure in 2016, Monash University (Australia) in 2017 and Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands) in 2023. The Summer School’s instructors are renowned international experts on Screw Theory, and some of its main areas of application in robotics as well as mechanism analysis and design. 

The 10th International Summer School on Screw Theory Based Methods in Robotics (Summer Screws 2024) will held at İzmir Institute of Technology (IzTech) in İzmir, Türkiye in September 7-14, 2024 .

The program will introduce basic theoretical notions in a rigorous manner, with a focus on examples, applications, and exercises. This summer school is suitable for M.Sc. students, Ph.D. students, post-docs, and academic staff, as well as participants from industry who want to enhance their skills in this field.
