The 10th Field and Service Robotics (FSR) conference will be held June
23-26 in Toronto, Canada:

   http://fsr.utias.utoronto.ca


PRESENTATIONS

We have 42 papers lined up from a broad range of field robotics
applications including unmanned aerial vehicles, space exploration,
self-driving cars, and many aquatic applications.  Our 4 excellent keynote
speakers are Chris Urmson (Google), Paul Newman (Oxford), Sanjiv Singh
(CMU), and Ryan Gariepy (Clearpath Robotics).


SOCIAL AND SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITIES

There will be a number of social events during the conference. A first
dinner will be held on a 144-feet long ship reserved exclusively for the
occasion. Through the cruise, participants will be able to enjoy few drinks
on the upper deck, while appreciating a scenic view of Toronto Harbour from
a unique perspective. The next day, the conference banquet dinner will be
hosted in the Trinity College's Strachan Hall. With its oak-panelled walls,
cathedral ceiling, chandeliers, and long wooden tables, the Strachan Hall
will, for sure, be a perfect location to start a good discussion, while
savoring a fine meal.  The last day will include a technical tour and demos
at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies. Ground and
aerial vehicles will be presented in action giving the participants the
opportunity to ask questions and interact with the systems.

Registration is now open, so please consider attending FSR 2015!
