Many of you have had the opportunity to participate in one or more of our Industry and Student Mixers in recent years. Building upon the success of those events, the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines launched the Robotics Research Showcase, held last April.
We hope you will join us for our second annual Robotics Research Showcase on Thursday, March 28th, from 3:00 until 6:00 p.m., in the Technology Square Research Building auditorium and banquet hall.
This year, we’ve planned another exciting event immediately before the Showcase: a Manufacturing and Robotics Workshop on Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon (March 27th–28th) in the GTRI Conference Center. This workshop is co-organized and co-sponsored by IRIM and the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute (GTMI).
Our events bring together students, Georgia Tech faculty researchers, and our industry partners, offering opportunities for employee recruitment and networking.
Manufacturing and Robotics Workshop Overview (March 27th and 28th)
The joint IRIM-GTMI workshop will focus on the future of robotics in manufacturing, emerging trends in robotics and manufacturing, and bridging the gap between the manufacturing and robotics communities. Wednesday events include talks by industry experts on the challenges and future needs for robotics in various manufacturing sectors and breakout discussions at the end of the day to further explore the industry needs. Thursday events include presentations by Georgia Tech researchers on autonomy, perception, human-robot interaction, exoskeletons, and manufacturing. This will be followed by breakout discussions to discuss the future research agenda for the next generation of robotic systems for manufacturing.
Parking: The E70 parking deck is adjacent to the venue and complimentary parking is available.
Refreshments: A Continental breakfast and lunch will be served on Thursday; beverages and snacks will be provided during breaks on both days
Robotics Research Showcase Overview (March 28th)
In addition to having opportunities to interact one-on-one with our robotics students, attendees will enjoy a more in-depth preview of current research projects during a poster session, learn more about GT Robotics’ thought leadership through presentations by some of our most robust research-centered professors, and learn more about trends in robotics during a panel discussion.
Parking: The Technology Square deck and the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center deck are the closest parking options. Prices vary.
Refreshments: A reception will be held during the event.
The Research Showcase takes place one day before the Robotarium Open House on Friday, March 29th from 10:30—11:30 a.m. We invite you to stay in Atlanta and participate in the event where you’ll see a robotics lab like none other.
We hope you can join us for our spring events.
