Robotics Day at the Penn Wharton China Center
Presented by: School of Engineering and Applied Science | The GRASP Lab
University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA
June 18-19, 2015, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Penn Engineering and the GRASP Lab at Penn are organizing one day robotics research outreach activities at the newly opened Penn Wharton China Center. The day's activities are open to researchers in robotics, vision, machine learning and automation. Our topics cover broad topics in building machines that can think, plan and move. We highlight the connections between human, biological mechanism, and robotics.

This event brings together six world leaders in robotics engineering from UPenn, and leading researchers in China. In order to be able to attend the day's activities, you must register here.

As a follow up to this, we are organizing with the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences Summer School on Pattern Recognition and Human Centered Robotics: http://prhcr2015.csp.escience.cn/dct/page/1
