This Sunday sees the start of the 2020 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS). This year the event is online and free for anyone to attend. Content will be available from the platform on demand, with access available from 25 October to 25 November 2020.
IROS conferences have traditionally had a theme and this year is no different with the emphasis being on “consumer robotics and our future”. You can sign up here.
IROS will feature three plenary talks. The speakers and topics are as follows:
There are also nine keynote talks covering a number of topics.
The technical talks have been divided into 12 topic areas.
Each talk will feature its digest slide, pre-recorded video presentation, and the paper’s PDF. These will be available from 25 October, so keep an eye on the website.
There are a whopping 35 workshops to choose from. These have on-demand content and also live sessions (dates vary so visit the webpages below for more information about each specific workshop).
Another element of the conference that sounds interesting is the robot challenges. There are three of these and you should be able to watch the competitions in action next week.
