Stanford Robotics Seminar, Spring 2013.

Fridays, 12noon-1.45pm. Robotics Lab, #119, Gates Building.

The Stanford Robotics Seminar provides a forum for robotics researchers across the campus to share their work. Each seminar will have four to five talks, and will be followed by a short discussion and potentially some demos. Lunch will be served before the seminar starts.
