IEEE ICRA2010, Anchorage

Alaska RailwayIEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICAR) 2010 was in Anchorage, Alaska on May 4-5. The “linear” banquet was on the Alaska Railway. 22 cars carries us all to the end of the Glacier. A slow round trip in five hours from 17:00 to 22:00. I walked from one end to the other (and come back) to see and talk to all the participants. It was a really fun. The conference was special to me since it was a great opportunity for me to give one of the plenaries. The speech was “Robotics from Anthropomorphism” and explained the field of robotics where the shape and motion of humans are most crucial. The outside was light  at 22:00 or even after and cool but not cold. The conference was with record participants of over 1600. Seven papers were presented in the technical sessions from YNL.
