Bilal Kaddouh
Dear List Moderator,
I would like to submit the invite to the following event to the Robotics Worldwide Mailing list. We would appreciate if the below invite is circulated to the members.

Thank you,

Robotic Challenge 2020: Robots for resilient infrastructure
23 and 24th June 2020, Weetwood Hall, Leeds, UK
Free to enter. Cash prizes totalling £5,500
Robotic Challenge 2020<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__selfrepairingcities.com_2019_11_29_robotic-2Dchallenge-2D2020_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=FjQAoAjbkomeNbZxAc-kHtbw0SG_Mq2YEOlHJyEKXRw&s=1ukwuej2PaZXrUHSOZDIrCATjeY2hhSsNySdMglFp2I&e= > is part of UK-RAS Robotics Week<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.ukras.org_robotics-2Dweek_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=FjQAoAjbkomeNbZxAc-kHtbw0SG_Mq2YEOlHJyEKXRw&s=u3JEDKqpnffd38DtZHd-G0lLYvZ3SE8edzaOMqH_a6g&e= >
'Robots for resilient infrastructure to reduce disruption, improve worker safety, save money and resources, for a cleaner environment, to make life better.'
This two day challenge event will demonstrate cutting-edge robots and autonomous systems to create, inspect, repair and maintain our critical infrastructure.
Alongside showcasing technical advances, the event will create a space to discuss the benefits and impacts of adopting such technology, and what we need to do to prepare for the future.
The event will bring those with responsibility for infrastructure, contractors, policy makers and city builders together with researchers and innovators in this area, to create a broad vision of the challenges and opportunities for infrastructure robotics. Applications for such robots cover broad domains including civil infrastructure, transport (road, rail, sea), offshore energy, space, and nuclear.
We are currently inviting submissions for the following:
*       Robotic challenge: Enter your robotic and autonomous system to the challenge and demonstrate them at the event. Submit expressions of interest by 24 January 2020.
*       Posters: Share technical research and innovation in this area, and also work related to the benefits and impacts of adopting such technology. Submit abstracts by 15 March 2020.
*       Showcase stands: Show robotic and autonomous systems for infrastructure that are in development or are already being implemented. Submit stand summaries by 15 March 2020.
See our Call for Participation (downloadable pdf) for a summary of the event and how you can get involved: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__selfrepairingcities.com_wp-2Dcontent_uploads_sites_52_2019_11_Robotic-2DChallenge-2D2020-5FCall-2Dfor-2DParticipation.pdf&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=FjQAoAjbkomeNbZxAc-kHtbw0SG_Mq2YEOlHJyEKXRw&s=cC_9r6I9v3dVEiOsdn2tO_Y72z2OJ2HmnrD0HD54UqY&e=
