We would like to announce that as of this Fall, the US NIST has passed on organizational duties for the annual Microrobotics Challenge to the IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Micro-Nano Robotics and Automation.

For ICRA 2013, a committee composed of Prof. Dan Popa, Prof. Dave Cappelleri, and Dr. Jason Gorman will  organize the Mobile Microrobotics Challenge as a Robot Challenge event. 

The MMC event is an excellent motivator for students to pursue research in micro-nano robotics and we encourage submissions to this event by December 15, 2012.

The rules for next year's event are posted online at http://www.uta.edu/ee/ngs/mmc/rules.pdf     

Please circulate the CFP link http://www.uta.edu/ee/ngs/mmc/ to collaborators, students and colleagues who may be interested in participating. 

Thank you and we hope to see you at the MMC competition in Karlsruhe!
