The Robotics Colloquium features talks by invited and local researchers on all aspects of robotics, including control, perception, machine learning, mechanical design, and interaction. The colloquium is held Fridays between 1:30-2:30pm. Special seminars outside this schedule are indicated below. Refreshments are served.

If you would like to give a talk in upcoming Robotics Colloquia, please contact Maya Cakmak. If you would like to get regular email announcements and reminders about the robotics colloquium speakers, please sign up for the Robotics@UW mailing list.

Winter 2019 Organizers: Tapomayukh Bhattacharjee, Maya Cakmak, Dieter Fox, Siddhartha S. Srinivasa
