Call for Proposals: ROSCon 2012
St. Paul, Minnesota
19-20 May 2012

Details: http://roscon.ros.org/
Proposals: submit at roscon.ros.org
Questions: info at roscon.ros.org

ROSCon 2012 is a chance for ROS developers of all levels, beginner to
expert, to spend an extraordinary weekend learning from and networking with
the ROS community.  Get tips and tricks from experts, network, and share
ideas with fellow developers from around the globe.

ROSCon is a developers’ conference, in the model of PyCon and BoostCon. The
two-day program will comprise tech talks and tutorials that will introduce
you to new tools and libraries, and teach you more about the ones you
already know. The bulk of the program will be 30-40-minute presentations
(some may be longer or shorter).

** Want to present at ROSCon?  Submit a proposal!  For details on
proposing, go to http://roscon.ros.org/ **

If you don’t want to make a formal presentation, you should still bring
your new project or idea to ROSCon!

There will be several sessions of Lightning Talks, which are 5-minute
mini-talks that are scheduled just-in-time at the conference. There will
also be open space for Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) meetings, impromptu hacking
sessions, and informal presentations.

On behalf of the ROSCon 2012 Organizing Committee:

   Ryan Gariepy, Clearpath Robotics
   Brian Gerkey, Willow Garage
   Cédric Pradalier, ETH Zürich
   Matthew Williamson, Heartland Robotics
