IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2022
As one of the ICRA Science Communication Award Winner, I’ll be covering the virtual aspects of ICRA 2022, in this blog. Please feel free to let me know (@girlinrobotics) if you want any part of this blog to be removed/changed due to intellectual property rights.
IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2022 is absolutely the best robotics conference. It generally covers a vast range of robotics including but not limited to perception, control, optimization, machine learning and application-robotics. In 2022, ICRA was held in Philadelphia, where the U.S. declaration of independence was signed, for a week from May, 23rd to May, 27th. This conference is also one of the first in-person conferences for roboticists after a couple of pandemic years. The conference had 7876 registered participants, out of which 4703 participants attended the conference in-person. You can access the conference technical papers and presentation here. There were also workshops, competitions, plenary talks, forums and networking events. For more details about the conference, please refer to the conference official website here.
In this blog, I’ll be covering some of the most interesting aspects of ICRA 2022. Due to travel issues, I couldn’t attend ICRA 2022 in-person. Regardless, I’ve tried my best to build this blog to share my experience as a presenter and a virtual attendee. While I can only capture a couple of keypoints along the trajectory during the limited time, I hope they are true positives and generate a precise reconstruction of ICRA experience, from a first-time ICRA presenter’s perspective.
