The Southern California Robotics Symposium (SCR) is a one-day technical symposium that aims to bring together roboticists from around Southern California. With a high density of academic institutions, research centers, and industry players, SCR is expected to have a large audience with broad expertise and interests. It will also be a showcase for established and up-and-coming robot companies as well as a recruitment opportunity for local companies and startups.
After hosting SCR 2016 last year, we hope to continue the success of this annual conference. The symposium will once again feature an amazing line-up of speakers from academia and industry, robotics demos, and industry booths. In addition, feature poster/demo sessions will foster discussion on recent developments in robotics.
The speaker list for 2017 is still being finalized, here are some of the speakers who have been confirmed so far.
