*QMUL and ARQ*


QMUL (the Queen Mary University of London) is a leading research oriented
UK university, ranking top 20 in the UK and top 100 in the world (

Located in the booming creative
high-tech cluster of east London (

university hosts several multidisciplinary research groups in cognitive
science, intelligent sensing, computer vision, multimedia, advanced
materials, control, aerospace, and more.


QMUL has recently opened a new centre for robotics (ARQ - Advanced
Robotics @ Queen Mary, https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.qmul.ac.uk_robotics_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=CIWADTu5koEGS8QD6x6gUIWKY1dAT9Xhv6VGtvz2rBQ&s=iWt1sjf0XPr0begiIDRA0cdzEoqqMu9Vjy4Lopz8jgA&e=), which is rapidly
expanding and now counts more than 40 active brains including faculty
members, postdocs, PhD students and a few non-completely-brainless robots.
Join us!
