Robotic and automation experts from across the globe will convene virtually for technical paper presentations and online discussions for the International Conference on Robotics and Automation 2020 conference which will be held from May 31st to August 31st. 

ICRA is the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society’s flagship conference and the premier international forum for robotics researchers to present and discuss their work.

UMD Computer Science researchers, some of who are also faculty members of Maryland Robotics Center (MRC),  will present 14 papers at the conference.  UMD MRC faculty and students publish a total of 16 papers at IEEE ICRA 2020 this year, tied with University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of Michigan at Ann Arbor among the Big Ten Universities.

Assistant Professor Pratap Tokekar will also be organizing an online workshop on the foundation of multi-robot systems, along with researchers from Stony Brook and University of Pennsylvania. 

More information on the conference can be found here.
