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 (virtually over Zoom - details will be sent over the mailing list). Special seminars outside this schedule are indicated below. Previously recorded talks are available on YouTube.

If you would like to give a talk in upcoming Robotics Colloquia, please contact Selest Nashef. 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.
