ROSCon 2016?

Is there any news about ROSCon 2016, it seems like http://ros-users.122217.n3.nabble.com/ROSCon-2015-Videos-Posted-ROSCon-2016-Venue-Survey-td4022253.html was the last news about it.

You’ve probably already seen the announcement, but just in case, we’re going to Seoul in October: http://www.ros.org/news/2016/04/roscon-2016-location-announced.html. More information will be posted here in the coming weeks: http://roscon.ros.org/2016/.

Yep, I’ve seen it. Anyway, thanks for posting the reference! Since I might not make it all the way to Korea (looks like a nice venue though) I am putting my hopes on a live-stream, maybe? :wink:

I just saw some discussion about child care and family-friendly features of tech conferences:

Does anyone have any wishlist items for ROSCon related to family friendliness / child care?

I haven’t even submitted application for this year’s ROSCon though, the uncertainty for the child care is my (almost only) blocker for doing so (I will have to bring my infant, I mean, human one). If any update about it posted somewhere I’d appreciate it.

You asked for it, so this year we’re providing information on childcare options:

For budget and liability reasons, we’re not able to offer to pay for or subsidize childcare, but that could change in future years.

We’d love to get feedback on the utility of this kind of information, as well as what else we can to make ROSCon a family-friendly event.
