Please Note: On Thursday afternoon, a shuttle will run from 2:15 p.m.- 6:15 p.m. from the GTRI conference center to the Research Showcase located at Technology Square Research Building.

The Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines will hold the second annual Robotics Research Showcase on Thursday, March 28th, from 3:00 until 6:00 p.m., in the Technology Square Research Building auditorium and banquet hall.

This year, we’ve planned another exciting event immediately before the Showcase: a Manufacturing and Robotics Workshop on Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon (March 27th–28th) in the GTRI Conference Center. This workshop is co-organized and co-sponsored by IRIM, Georgia Tech Research Institute, and the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute (GTMI).

Our events bring together students, faculty, and our industry partners, offering opportunities for employee recruitment and networking.

Manufacturing and Robotics Workshop Overview

March 27th: 1:00–6:00 p.m.
March 28th: 7:30 a.m.–1:45 p.m.

The joint IRIM-GTRI-GTMI workshop will focus on the future of robotics in manufacturing, emerging trends in robotics and manufacturing, and bridging the gap between the manufacturing and robotics communities. Wednesday events include talks by industry experts on the challenges and future needs for robotics in various manufacturing sectors and breakout discussions at the end of the day to further explore the industry needs. Thursday events include presentations by Georgia Tech researchers on autonomy, perception, human-robot interaction, exoskeletons, and manufacturing. This will be followed by breakout discussions to discuss the future research agenda for the next generation of robotic systems for manufacturing.

Parking:  The Georgia Public Broadcasting parking deck (E70) is adjacent to the venue and complimentary parking is available.
Refreshments: A Continental breakfast and lunch will be served on Thursday; beverages and snacks will be provided during breaks on both days

Robotics Research Showcase Overview

March 28th: 3:00–6:00 p.m.

In addition to having opportunities to interact one-on-one with our robotics students, attendees will enjoy a more in-depth review of current research projects during a poster session, learn more about GT Robotics’ thought leadership through presentations by some of our most robust research-centered professors, and learn more about trends in robotics during a panel discussion.

Parking: The Centergy deck and the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center deck are the closest parking options. Prices vary.
Refreshments: A reception will be held during the event.

The Research Showcase takes place one day before the Robotarium Open House on Friday, March 29th from 10:30–11:30 a.m. We invite you to stay in Atlanta and participate in the event where you’ll see a robotics lab like none other.
