The 2017 Summer Screws will be held on a new continent, Australia, and in an unusual month, December. Yet, the time and place could not be more appropriate.

It is in the beginning of the Southern summer, as befits a summer school, in a time window immediately after IFToMM ISRM 2017 (the International Symposium on Robotics & Mechatronics) and right before ACRA 2017 (the Australasian Conference on Robotics and Automation, the premier yearly robotics event in the region), both held in Sydney.

The location, Monash University, and Australia, is uniquely significant for our core subject. It is where nearly 50 years ago Kenneth Hunt and his collaborators revitalized and updated screw theory and started applying it to the emerging field of robotics.

As a special feature of the 2017 edition, a number of local guest lecturers, including Kenneth Waldron (Stanford and University of Technology Sydney) and Marcus Pandy (University of Melbourne), will talk about the history of screw theory in Australia and the special role played by Kenneth Hunt, whom they knew well.

Like every year, Summer Screws 2017 will gather a selection of our regular lecturers, all recognized experts in the robotics applications of screw theory, and up to 40 participants at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia from 2 to 10 December. The school will teach attendees how to apply existing methods and empower them to develop new ones in their own research. The basic theoretical notions will be introduced in a rigorous manner, with emphasis on examples, applications, and exercises. As usual, invited speakers from the region will briefly present current and recent work.
