UofT Robotics at ICRA 2020

The International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) is the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society’s flagship conference and is one of the most prestigious international forums for robotics research.

The University of Toronto is a leading contributor to the 2020 edition of ICRA – with 26 papers, 2 workshops, 54 faculty and student authors, and 1 prestigious award.

UofT highlights from ICRA include:

  • On June 5th, Prof. Eric Diller will be presented the distinguished IEEE RAS Early Academic Career Award in Robotics and Automation – Congrats on this incredible achievement! This international award from the Robotics and Automation Society goes to only a few distinguished early-career researchers each year.
  • Prof. Angela Schoellig‘s Dynamic Systems Lab and Prof. Yu Sun‘s Advanced Micro and Nanosystems Lab each published 5 papers at ICRA 2020, placing them among the top published authors in the conference this year.
  • Almost 400 people registered for the workshop on Applications in Micro-Nano Robotics, co-organized by UofT’s Prof. Eric Diller and colleagues Fumihito Arai (Nagoya University), Aude Bolopion (CNRS), and Cédric Clévy (Université Bourgogne). This full day workshop featured both recognized research teams and highly promising start-ups, to present an overview of the application domains of micro/nano robotics, and the challenges of bringing current systems to industry.
  • Don’t miss the second edition of the Debates on the Future of Robotics. This event packed the house last year, and this year’s virtual version will no doubt to the same. Co-0rganized by Profs. Jonathan Kelly and Florian Shkurti, UofT Robotics Institute grads Matthew Giamou, Valentin Peretroukin and Lee Clement, along with esteemed colleagues from UCSD, Cornell, Princeton and Nuro, the debates will stream from .
