Symposium on Robotics @ Collège de France, Paris

Symposium on Robotics @ Collège de France, Paris

Robotics has been recognized by everyone as one of the next big thing. Most important universities have researchers working on robotic. Some like the MIT or CMU since while. Others more recently, such as the Collège de France in Paris that exists since 1530, but waited until 2012 to hire its first roboticist: Prof. Jean-Paul Laumond. Better late than never.

As part of his duties, Prof. Laumond has to give a series of talks on the state of the art of robotics. He also invites other researchers to give presentations on various topics. A dedicated web page gathers all videos. However, they are unfortunately all in french. But, there is a good news. There will be a two-days symposium planned on 12-13 June 2012 all in english. All these 2 days are dedicated to presentation by a 9 among the most renowned researchers in robotics worldwide.

From Europe:

  • Michael Brady, Professor at Oxford University, UK
  • Paolo Dario, Professor, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy
  • Gerd Hirzinger, Professor Dr. Ing., DLR, Munich, Germany

From Japan:

  • Hirochika Inoue, Emeritus professor at Tokyo University, recognized as the father of humanoid robotics
  • Mitsuo Kawato, Director of ATR BICR Laboratories, Kansai Science City
  • Yoshihiko Nakamura, Professor at Tokyo University

From USA:

  • Rodney Brooks, Professor at MIT, Chairman of Heartland Robotics, Boston
  • Matthew T. Mason, Professor at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh
  • Russell H. Taylor, Professor at the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore

We hope that these talks will be recorded and made available on the web for those who can’t make it. For the luckies that will make the trip, the program shows that talks finish rather early, at least the second day. A nice opportunity for visiting Paris for a few hours!
