UMD Researchers to Have a Strong Showing at ICRA 2021

University of Maryland researchers will present 15 papers at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2021) to be held from May 30 to June 5, 2021. ICRA is the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society’s biggest conference and the premier international forum for robotics researchers to present and discuss their work. The conference will be held in a hybrid format with virtual and  in-person sessions to be held at the Xi’an International Convention and Exhibition Center in Xi’an, China. 

University of Maryland researchers, including Distinguished University Professor Dinesh Manocha (ECE/CS/UMIACS/ISR/MRC), and affiliate ECE faculty members Yiannis Aloimonos, Tom Goldstein, Ming C. Lin, Elisabeth Smela, and Pratap Tokekar, will present their work on a wide variety of topics such as deep reinforcement learning, multi-agent coordination, autonomous navigation, robot perception, and even detecting and counting oysters.

The UMD researchers continue with the trend of strong presence at the International conferences with 14 papers published at ICRA-2020 and 16 papers at IROS 2020
