The invited speakers for the Robotics Science and Systems conference 2008 have been announced in public. They are Jean-Louis Deneubourg , Howard Berg and Luis von Ahn. The general philosophy for RSS invited talks is to get illustrious speakers who are a bit off the beaten track for the robotics audience, yet still relevant.

Howard Berg works on biological systems and his work looks are the way they move. This is relevant and important with respect to wanting to build miniature artificial devices that can move, grabbing ideas from biology. This kind of work is also being done by Ari Requicha at USC, a pioneer in looking explicitly at what he called Molecular Robotics; very small devices that use biological principles.

Re: Robotics Science and Systems invited speakers

We had a "Distinguished Lecture" at UofT from Luis Von Ahn a few months ago. He definitely gives a great talk. Not to be missed.
