The 9th Annual New England Manipulation Symposium (NEMS) will take place at Harvard University on Friday, May 17th, 2013.
The manipulation community combines researchers who are working on computational algorithms, sensing, mechanics, and practical design associated with modern grasping and manipulation. The main goals of this event are to take advantage of our geographic proximity to explore common research interests, to establish and strengthen collaborations, and to give students the opportunity to network and present their work.
Previous years' symposia were extremely successful in bringing together robotics researchers in New England and the Northeast US. NEMS 2012 was held at iRobot and was attended by approximately 57 participants from 17 institutions. Oral presentations on manipulation-related research are invited, as are poster presentations on other research of interest to the NEMS audience.
Attending: (Deadline: 1st May 2013). There is no cost to attend. Please indicate whether you will need a parking permit. Lunch and coffee breaks will be provided by Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Late registration will be considered on a space available basis. Please contact Melissa Majkut (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
Presenting: (Deadline: 15th April 2013). If you are interested in giving a presentation on your work at the symposium, please register and then send an informative title and, the name of the authors and affiliations, and the abstract to Yaroslav Tenzer (email@example.com). Topics should be related to robotic manipulation, but can otherwise span any range of sub-topics.
Posters: (Deadline: 15th April 2013). If you are interested in presenting your work for the poster session, please register and then send an informative title and, the name of the authors and affiliations, and the abstract to Yaroslav Tenzer (firstname.lastname@example.org). The scope of the posters can lie outside of the scope of the conference, but should be on a topic that will likely be of interest to the attendees.
Demos: (Deadline: 1st May 2013). If you are interested in presenting your work as a demo, please register and then send an informative description of the demo to Yaroslav Tenzer (email@example.com).
