We are excited to announce the creation of an online interactive display 
featuring the diverse panorama of robotics-related projects in the 
developing world. This display will be launched at the International 
Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in May 2015, and will 
persist on the World Wide Web beyond the conference. The display will 
feature work from a wide range of categories, including but not limited 
to research, education, outreach, academic work, industry work, 
governmental work, and NGO work.  Relevant projects to be featured in 
the interactive display can be submitted via this link: 
http://bit.ly/developingworldrobotics

Projects submitted before April 30 will be included in the display at 
the time of the launch.

* Are you involved with any endeavor in the developing world that 
includes robotics in some way?
* Does your research project or technology development project involve 
sensing, "thinking", and/or "acting"?
* Are you creating autonomous or "intelligent" systems in hardware 
and/or software?
* Do you run a program that uses robots and/or robotics for education or 
outreach among students or people young or old?
* Are you working on automation for industrial or service applications?
* Are you tinkering with electronics and sensors, trying to create 
systems that interact with the physical world?
* Do you run a robotics research program or lab?
* Do you teach robotics at your university or school?

If any of the above apply to you, and you're working in or with a part 
of the world that can be considered "developing", we'd love to hear 
about your project, however large or small it is.  Please tell us about 
it by filling out this form: http://bit.ly/developingworldrobotics.  If 
you have multiple relevant projects to include, you can fill this form 
multiple times.
