ROSCon 2015 is a chance for ROS developers of all levels, beginner to
expert, to spend an extraordinary two days learning from and networking
with the ROS community. Get tips and tricks from experts and meet and share
ideas with fellow developers from around the globe.

ROSCon is a developers conference, in the model of PyCon and BoostCon.
Following the success of theinaugural ROSCon in St. Paul, Minnesota
<http://roscon.ros.org/2012>, the second version in Stuttgart, Germany
<http://roscon.ros.org/2013>, last years event in Chicago, Illinois
<http://roscon.ros.org/2014>, this year's ROSCon will be held in Hamburg,
Germany. Similar to previous years, the two-day program will comprise
technical talks and tutorials that will introduce you to new tools and
libraries, as well as teach you more about the ones you already know. The
bulk of the program will be 30-40 minute presentations (some may be longer
or shorter). To submit a proposal please read the Call for Proposals

If you don't want to make a formal presentation, you should still bring
your new project or idea to ROSCon! There will be sessions of Lightning
Talks, which are 5-minute mini-talks that are scheduled just-in-time at the
conference. There will also be open space for Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF)
meetings, impromptu hacking sessions, and informal presentations.

If you are looking for information on past ROSCons see their separate
websites including past programs, slides and videos of the presentations
are available from their programs: ROSCon 2012 Program
