Conference Description: The personal, service and mobile robotics markets have now reached a critical stage and are poised for rapid, dramatic growth. The RoboDevelopment Conference and Exposition provides technical professionals with the real-world solutions and actionable content they need to design, develop and manufacture the next generation of robotics products that will come to define this exciting new industry.

Proposal Submission: To submit your speaking proposal please click HERE by Friday, June 20, 2008.

Robotics Trends is seeking interesting, thought provoking sessions delivered by compelling speakers for each of four separate RoboDevelopment tracks including:

- Enabling Technology
- Achieving Autonomy

For a complete description of RoboDevelopment, please visit the RoboDevelopment conference website at

Selection Criteria: Conference attendees are a demanding audience.  Robotics Trends will only accept the most compelling submissions that meet our criteria.  YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED IF YOUR PRESENTATION IS ACCEPTED.  The selection criteria are:

Alignment with Conference Themes
Applicability - The successful candidate presentation will speak to the latest tools, techniques and concepts, by presenting the practical application of the material, including real-world examples and ROI studies where possible.

Innovation/Originality - A presentation that advances existing concepts or introduces new ideas is better than a presentation that merely repeats information already widely known.  The timeliness of ideas is important.  A presentation should focus on the general attributions, benefits and drawbacks of a given robot, robotic device or enabling technology, as well as the productization potential.  Issues related to the social ramifications of robotic technology, as well as the impact of such technology on our day-to-day lives, should also be addressed.
Proposal Submission: To submit your speaking proposal please click HERE by Friday, June 20, 2008.

Speaker Benefits: All speakers receive a complimentary full registration, granting admission to all sessions and event activities, including all breakfasts, lunches and receptions. In addition, speakers receive one complimentary guest and 50% off full registration fees for up to two additional attendees.

Speaker Requirements: Accepted speakers will be required to sign and submit a speaker agreement and provide an electronic copy of their presentation by a specific date.
