Robotics is a burgeoning field of research impacting many science and engineering disciplines. Conversely, advances in basic sciences are transforming some of the fundamental approaches adopted in robotics. The goal of the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Robotics is to provide an open and interdisciplinary forum for researchers from a diverse range of disciplines, as well as those who have not worked in traditional robotics research, to discuss and initiate new ideas for addressing some of the grand challenges faced by robotics. The conference will provide a unique cross-cutting theme linking other allied GRCs and cement new collaboration and research directions that are otherwise difficult to facilitate. The subjects of the 2020 GRC on Robotics will focus on the grand challenges identified by the community on new materials and fabrication schemes for developing new generations of robots, biohybrid and bioinspired robots that translate fundamental biological principles into engineering designs with tangible applications.
The topics, speakers, and discussion leaders for the conference sessions are displayed below. The conference chair is currently developing their detailed program, which will include the complete meeting schedule, as well as the talk titles for all speakers. The detailed program will be available by September 12, 2019. Please check back for updates.
Poster sessions are an integral part of the our conferences, and offer all conferees an opportunity to discuss their research.
