Out of curiosity:
If I’m not mistaken, the previous ROSCon’s have been directly before (or at least very close to, i.e. within a weekend) of the IROS (this year from 2020-10-25T00:00:00Z → 2020-10-29T00:00:00Z) at the same location/city.
Has this been considered for this year as well? What has been the reason to “break” with this “tradition”? (I’m not sure how much this has been a tradition or best practice, this is why I put the " " there… Also, not criticizing, just interested in hearing a rationale)
Especially with travelling to another continent, the former setup really helped to convince the higher ups of visiting both events, not just one. At least for me this will probably be a dealbreaker and I’ll have to choose one over the other… (and sadly, due to another event close to IROS, I guess I cannot attend ROSCON… )
