Hi Everyone,

We're happy to announce the program for ROSCon 2014 has been posted
<http://roscon.ros.org/2014/program/> and that registration
<https://events.osrfoundation.org/roscon-2014-registration/> is now open.

*The early registration deadline is August 15, 2014.*

The program fills two days with talks on applications of ROS from outer
space to inside mines as well as overviews of useful tools for both
research and product development. There will also be presentations on
upcoming development and ongoing efforts to make ROS available on more

In addition to the talks ROSCon will feature two lightning talk sessions
and two birds of a feather sessions, all organized on-site. The lightning
talks <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning_talk> are an opportunity for
you to have 3 minutes to present a topic of your choice: introduce a new
project, recruit collaborators or users to an existing project, announce a
product, whatever you like.

Immediately follow the lightning talks are birds of a feather
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birds_of_a_feather_(computing)> sessions,
which are an opportunity to propose and find people to talk about topics of
interest to subgroups at the conference. This will be a mostly unstructured
time with topics proposed on site and groups forming organically.

Before you come to ROSCon, think ahead about any topic you'd like to
propose for the BoF sessions and have some slides ready to present a
lightning talk (3 slides or fewer).

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago in September!
