| Cycling Summer School – From July 6th to 12th. The purpose of this summer school is to discuss and explore the design space and interaction methods for technological augmentation of bicycles. The summer school will achieve this goal through a series of inspiring talks, demos, interactive workshops, brainstorming sessions and prototyping activities. Given that cycling is a unique and healthy way of socializing, the summer school will offer various cycling tours to promote outdoor discussions about development of new technologies and research direction by exploring the design space of different cycling areas. To make this exploration engaging and joyful, the program of the summer school is going to be framed around four cycling-related themes: scenic cycling, urban cycling, accessible cycling, and safe cycling.
