The fifth annual Northeast Robotics Colloquium will be held on the Cornell campus October 29-30 and is open to the public with registration. Welcoming roboticists from the US and Canada, the event is a research meeting, networking event, job fair and a showcase for robot companies. “This is a great opportunity to promote the kind of healthy and well-connected robotics community that will be essential in fueling the field’s rapid growth in the coming decade,” said Cornell Computer Science Professor Ross Knepper, part of the organizing committee for the colloquium.
Keynote speakers include Kirstin Petersen, Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computing Engineering at Cornell University, Tim Barfoot, Professor at the Institute of Aerospace Studies at University of Toronto, Marjorie McShane, Associate Professor in the Cognitive Science Department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Adam Rouse, post-doctoral associate in the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
NERC is a family-friendly event, including a low-cost family registration option and opportunities for children to look and interact with robots.
