ROSCon 2019 was a chance for ROS developers of all levels, beginner to expert, to spend an extraordinary two days learning from and networking with the ROS community in Macau. Silicon Valley Robotics recently hosted a ‘ROSCon Rewind’ event with recaps of the best papers and now Open Robotics has posted the videos and talks from ROSCon 2019 online. See links below!
ROSCon is a developers conference, in the model of PyCon and BoostCon. Following the success of the past six annual ROSCons, this year’s ROSCon was held in Macau. Similar to previous years, the two-day program will comprise technical talks and tutorials that will introduce you to new tools and libraries, as well as teach you more about the ones you already know. The bulk of the program will be 10-30 minute presentations (some may be longer or shorter).
We aim for ROSCon to represent the entire ROS community, which is global and diverse. Whoever you are, whatever you do, and wherever you do it, if you’re interested in ROS, then we want you to join us at ROSCon. We encourage women, members of minority groups, and members of other under-represented groups to attend ROSCon. We expect all attendees to follow our code of conduct.
The ROSCon planning committee acknowledges that the barriers to attendance for traditionally under-represented groups may be many and varied, and we are striving throughout the planning process to make the event as inclusive and accessible as possible. This year we are proud to continue the ROSCon Diversity Scholarship to help make ROSCon 2019 more representative of the global ROS community.
We also welcome suggestions for what else we can do to encourage more participation. Contact us if you have ideas that you’d like to share.
