2nd Call for Posters and Demonstrations: NERC 2013

The 2nd annual Northeast Robotics Colloquium (NERC) will be held at
Harvard University on Sunday October 6th 2013.

The deadline for registration and submission of poster abstracts and
demonstration proposals (October 1st) is fast approaching.


The colloquium aims to bring together all robotics practitioners in
the northeastern United States through an exciting one-day event that
is simultaneously a research symposium, a job-fair, and a showcase for
established and up-and-coming robotics companies. Ultimately, we hope
to promote the kind of healthy and well-connected robotics community
that will be essential in fueling the field's rapid growth in the
coming decade.

The colloquium will feature invited talks by leading local researchers
and professionals, robotics industry booths and demonstrations, as
well as interactive poster sessions. The program provides the occasion
to meet and mix with other regional roboticists and offers unique
career and networking opportunities.

This year's invited speakers include:
* Prof. Rob Howe, Harvard
* Prof. John Leonard, MIT
* Dr. Marc Raibert, Boston Dynamics Inc
* Prof. Conor Walsh, Harvard
