[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for Participation: IROS 2018 Workshop Vision-based Drones: What's Next? Friday, October 5, Room 1.L5 - Industry, Academia, Competitions, and Live Flight Demos!

Davide Scaramuzza
Dear colleagues

If you are attending IROS in Madrid next week, come to our workshop
"Vision-based Drone: What's Next?". We have a great line of speakers,
from both industry and academia, and live flight demonstrations! The
finalists of the 3rd IROS Autonomous Drone Race will also be presenting!
A JFR Special Issue will also be organized after the workshop
(submissions open to everyone).

WHEN: Friday, October 5th, 2018, from 08.50am to 07:00pm
WHERE: Municipal Conference Centre, Madrid, Spain - Room 1.L5
