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: For each 50-minute session you wish to propose a speaker, e-mail the following to Dan Kara at dk[at]roboticstrends[dot]com.
- A title and abstract of the topic to be presented (approximately 100 words),
- Title and brief biography of presenter (approximately 50 words),
- Presenter’s contact information (name, address, phone, fax, email), and
Indicate in which conference track your topic should be included.
Upon Acceptance: Speakers receive two complimentary full registrations for the conference, as well as admission to all event activities, including all breakfasts, lunches and receptions. Accepted speakers will be required to sign and submit a speaker agreement and provide an electronic copy of their presentation by a specific date.
