Please join us this May for the second annual edition of ROSCon!
ROSCon 2013 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 and meet and share ideas with fellow developers from around the globe.
ROSCon is a developers' conference, in the model of PyCon and BoostCon. Following the success of the inaugural ROSCon in St. Paul, Minnesota (http://roscon.ros.org/2012 <http://roscon.ros.org/2012> ), this year's ROSCon will be held in Germany. Similar to last year, the two-day program will comprise technical talks and tutorials that will introduce you to new tools and libraries, as well as teach you more about the ones you already know.
Once again we received an overwhelming number of session proposals, which made for some tough decisions in the review process. The 35 talks in the program include in-depth coverage of core libraries, like Octomap and RQT, multiple perspectives on timely topics like embedded systems and real-time control, and plenty of novel applications of ROS. And we an excellent keynote on MoveIt!, from Sachin Chitta of Willow Garage.
We have some great sponsors to thank: Bosch, Clearpath Robotics, Cyberbotics, Google, I Heart Engineering, Rethink Robotics, Schunk, Yaskawa Motoman, Yujin Robot, and Willow Garage. We're excited to have such strong industry support!
