Celebrating 30 Years of IROS


Photos • Videos • Memorabilia

Deadline: September 15, 2017 


IROS will be 30th years old in Vancouver! To celebrate this important milestone, we are soliciting from the IROS community mementos in IROS history. Your contributions can be in one of the following three categories. The contributions will be organized and, if selected, displayed on conference website and at IROS 2017. In addition, all contributions will be reviewed by the IROS@30 committee, and the winner of each category will be announced with a cash reward of $300 at the IROS 2017 conference banquet on September 26. So, email us your IROS@30 contributions, today!



Did you take memorable, humorous, or in any way remarkable pictures at a past IROS? Was there an interesting IROS moment that you managed to capture with a Polaroid camera, on 35mm slide or Kodak film? We need photos of all forms, recording IROS in some meaningful way. that can be used in a slideshow.



Videos were especially valuable in the earlier IROS years. Send us the footages of your robot experiments in the 80's and 90's. Show the young people today how robots were studied and parties thrown in the previous years of IROS.



Have you managed to keep a copy of your best paper award certificate? What about the covers of some old paper conference proceedings hidden in your basement? Presentations on transparencies or 35mm slides? IROS registration receipts and badges?
