Presentations on all topics related to ROS are invited. Examples
include introducing attendees to a ROS package or library, exploring
how to use tools, manipulating sensor data, and applications for

Women, members of minority groups, and members of other
under-represented groups are encouraged to submit presentation
proposals to ROSCon.

Proposals will be reviewed by a program committee that will evaluate
fit, impact, and balance.

We cannot offer presentations that are not proposed! If there is a
topic on which you would like to present, please propose it. If you
have an idea for an important topic that you do not want to present
yourself, please post it for discussion at ROS Discourse.
Topic areas

All ROS-related work is invited. Topics of interest include:

* Best practices
* New packages
* Robot-specific development
* Robot simulation
* Safety and security
* Embedded systems
* Product development & commercialization
* Research and education
* Enterprise deployment
* Community organization and direction
* Testing, quality, and documentation
* Robotics competitions and collaborations

To get an idea of the content and tone of ROSCon, check out the slides
and videos from last year: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__roscon.ros.org_2016_-23program&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=O8MHwDqQg6tCnnuEcyHNlWEaSEQ3O3IssctXf-ry37s&s=Jqh3p_P7HIoq1N-o7MgiwG7Hl-805oz08MVv_IA4PzQ&e=
