I just posted the ROS World program on the ROS World website. No one wants to sit on a Zoom call all day, so we’re keeping it short and sweet this year, just six hours, with a parallel track that should allow you to get an update from your favorite ROS sub-community. Don’t worry if you miss something, or the timezone is really hard for you, everything will be recorded and posted after the event.
Here are the highlights from this year program.
We have two panels planned:
- A software quality panel moderated by Deby Katz from CMU on ROS Software Quality with guests Afsoon Afzal (PhD. candidate at Carnegie Mellon University), Sophia Kolak (Columbia University), and Allison Thackston (software engineering manager at Waymo).
- A ROS agriculture panel with Sarah Osentoski, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Iron Ox as moderator. Panelists include Michele Pratusevich director of software at Root AI, Marie Schiltz, computer vision lead at FarmWise, and speaker TBD at Taylor Farms.
Four long talks including:
To accommodate the growing number of ROS sub-communities we will have six parallel ninety minutes tracks each focused on a different topic. These tracks are curated by the various ROS sub-communities. The current list of parallel sessions include:
I am really excited by the parallel tracks; and in particular I super excited to see OpenCV and ROS working together again.
Just as a reminder we are still looking for short lightning talk videos! You have less than a week to submit a video for ROS World. I looked at the submissions today and still totally have room for more. You can get all the details here.
Finally, I want to thank our ROS World Sponsors! Their generous support has helped to make this event free for everyone. We couldn’t do it without them.
