We would like to invite the international robotics community to attend
Robotics: Science and Systems 2008, to be held this year for the first
time in Europe at ETH, Zurich from June 25th-28th. RSS is a highly
selective, single track conference with the aim of bringing together
the best work from across the wide field of robotics in a high quality
technical program. We are happy to announce that the review process
for the main conference has now been completed and the tentative list
of accepted papers is now available online.
