ROSCon 2019: Growing the Organizing Committee

ROSCon has grown significantly in size and impact over the years. After selling out in advance at ~500 people for a couple of years in a row, we’re expecting this year to be our biggest yet. With that growth, we need more help, and so we’re expanding the Organizing Committee by adding (Co-)Chairs to focus on specific aspects of the event while also participating in broader decisions.

I’m excited to announce that we’ve been lucky enough to recruit the following individuals to contribute to the organization of ROSCon 2019 (also listed on the website):

General Chair

Brian Gerkey (Open Robotics)

General Co-Chairs

Tully Foote (Open Robotics)

Ryan Gariepy (Clearpath Robotics)
