Hello - 


The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Technical Committee on Mechanisms
and Design (www.robotmechanisms.org) will be holding a Kickoff social event
at IROS 2014 on Wednesday night (9/17) at 7pm (directly after the farewell
party). We have reserved a private room downstairs. We will provide TC
members (you can join on-site!) with dinner (Chicago-style deep-dish pizza)
and a free drink ticket (with cash bar available).


This event is mostly designed to get members of the Robot Mechanisms and
Design research community to interact socially, and will have a few brief
words from the TC Co-Chairs.


We will also have a "deep-dish design competition" - groups of up to four
will be given 15 minutes and two slices of pizza (with a few additional
materials) to construct the best mechanism they can - with the winners being
forever immortalized on the TC website (and free drinks for the rest of the
