We post a lot about ROS (Robot Operating System) around here, and the reason that we do is because a lot of the cooleststuff that's happening in the robotics world right now has been made possible in one form or another by the open sourceitude of ROS. This year, ROS is celebrating its fourth anniversary, so there's gonna be a HUGE PARTY in May of 2012 right after the IEEE Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Oh, did I say party? I meant conference. Yeah, conference.
Anyway, ROSCon (see? conference!) will be a great place to learn from the best, and if you're one of those best, you've got until December 4th to submit a presentation proposal.
