Robotic and automation experts from across the globe will convene virtually for technical paper presentations and online discussions for the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2020 conference which will be held online from May 31st to August 31st.

ICRA is the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society’s flagship conference and the premier international forum for robotics researchers to present and discuss their work.

MRC is participating in the conference with a total of 16 papers.

Assistant Professor Pratap Tokekar will also be organizing an online workshop on the foundation of multi-robot systems, along with researchers from Stony Brook and University of Pennsylvania. 

More information on the conference can be found here.
