ISRR 2017 Official Website - Workshop in Santiago

Workshop in Santiago

On Friday, December 15, a full day workshop will be held in Santiago, Chile on the campus of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

This workshop will host talks from world recognized robotics researchers who have gathered in Puerto Varas, Chile for the 2017 International Symposium on Robotics Research (ISRR). The workshop will also include posters presented by students from the region as well as by students who are participating in the Doctoral Consortium at ISRR 2017.

The workshop will be open to all registered participants at ISRR 2017 (for no additional registration cost) as well as to faculty and students from the region.
