Dear Colleagues,

The Robotics Technical Committee, under the sponsorship of the Dynamic
Systems and Control Division (DSCD), plans to organize
"Robotics/Mechatronics Control Challenge" at 2014 Dynamic Systems and
Control Conference (DSCC) to be held in San Antonio, TX in October.
The challenge invites teams of undergraduate students from neighboring
colleges in Texas to design a robotic device and present their devices
at the 2014 DSCC. Selected teams will be funded for their materials and
travel. Furthermore, awards with prize money will be given to the top
three teams. The objective of this challenge competition is to expose
the exciting area of dynamic systems and controls to undergraduate
students and motivate them to pursue research career in this area.

Please follow the link to the call letter of this challenge competition:

We would like to request your involvement by encouraging the motivated
undergraduate students (and serving as their advisor) in your institution
(if your institution is within the driving distance of the conference
site) to participate in this exciting opportunity. Please feel free to
contact us if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Dejan Milutinovic, UC Santa Cruz
