The Robotics Science and Systems (RSS) conference is on track for Atlanta, GA this summer. It will be adjacent to RoboCup so should be able to attract a range of participants. There had been a chance of attracting RSS to McGill and Montreal, but that would have represented a huge amount of work (for me!) and Georgia Teach seems to have superb infrastructure and financial support for this kind of thing. The big news is that RSS seems to have had a substantial increase in submissions this year, so the conference seems healthy and it promises to be exciting. Reviewing is in progress, and official figures should be available soon.

RSS is a key conference for hard core scientific results in all of robotics, from mapping algorithms to mechanical design. It features a single track of 30 to 60 minutes presentations of original scientific results. RoboCup involves a series of robot competitions from version seriosu teams. These include physical robots an software simulations. The teams that compete are typically composed of graduate students and/or professional who are pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved.
