The Northeast Robotics Colloquium (NERC) brings together the roboticists in
the northeastern United States and Canada to promote a healthy and
well-connected robotics community.
NERC is simultaneously:
- a research meeting,
- a networking event,
- a job search event,
- a showcase for established and up-and-coming robot companies,
- a time to get away from the lab and have fun with other people who share
the same frustrations of working with robots.
The 2018 edition will be held at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ on
Saturday October 20th.
NERC will feature invited research talks by leading local academics,
robotics demos, industry booths, recruitment opportunities, and the chance
to meet and mix with other area roboticists.
Call for Posters, Presentations and Demos
Apart from the invited talks, the colloquium will feature an extensive
poster/demo session intended to foster discussion on the recent
developments in robotics from both academia and industry. This is a great
opportunity for you to publicize your ongoing work, as well as get
feedback. Out of all submissions, we will select a small number for
presentation at the conference.
Because NERC is held on a weekend, it is specifically designed to make it
easy for families to attend. We're including a low-cost family registration
option---kids under 12 are free. Your family can attend and share the food
at the conference. Your children can have fun looking and interacting with
