Robotics Trends Announces RoboDevelopment Academic Outreach Program

Robotics Trends, a division of EH Publishing, Inc., announced the RoboDevelopment Conference & Exposition Academic Outreach Program, which provides colleges and universities with free Exhibit Hall Passes and discounted Conference Pass registrations for students, educators and researchers, as well as complimentary exhibit space for select universities. RoboDevelopment, the international technical design and development event for personal, service and mobile robotics industry, will be held November 18-19, 2008 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.

Under the Academic Outreach Program, students, researchers and educators can participate in the RoboDevelopment Conference and Exposition in three different ways:

  • DISCOUNTED CONFERENCE PASSES: Students, researchers and educators who wish to attend the keynote presentations, conference sessions and special events will receive a substantial discount on their Conference Pass.
  • FREE EXPO PASSES: Students, researchers and educators are provided with passes to the RoboDevelopment expo floor at no cost (a $45 value).
  • COMPLIMENTARY EXHIBIT SPACE: Select colleges and universities will be provided with complimentary space on the expo floor so that they may demonstrate their robots and robotics technology at the show. Participants also receive significant marketing exposure before and during the event.

“Robotics Trends is delighted to announce the RoboDevelopment Academic Outreach Program,” noted Dan Kara conference co-chairman and President of Robotics Trends. “With this announcement, Robotics Trends continues its long history of working with leading academic and research institutions to expand the personal, service and mobile robotics industry. While it is true that the RoboDevelopment Conference and Exposition focuses on the design and development of commercial robots and robotic technology, it is equally true that today’s college students are tomorrow’s robotics leaders and the next generation of innovative commercial robotics products are currently under development in university laboratories across the world. In essence, therefore, the RoboDevelopment Academic Outreach Program is a workforce development and productization initiative.”
