Fall 2021 IRIM Research Symposium

This year, to start the fall semester, we'll have a full-day IRIM research symposium on Wednesday August 25th. Please see the planned agenda below & register soon to reserve your lunch.

This year's symposium will feature the below speakers, as well as an afternoon poster session and ample time for networking.

  • Sonia Chernova | AI CARING Institute Overview
  • Greg Sawicki | Augmenting Human Locomotion with Lower-limb Exoskeletons
  • Matthew Gombolay | Interactive Robot Learning: From Apprenticeship to Teaming
  • Harish Ravichandar | Structured Methods for an Unstructured World: Toward Reliable and Collaborative Robots
  • Woonhong Yeo | Soft Nanomembrane Sensors and Electronics for Integration with Robots
  • Jaydev Desai | Medical Robotics Research at the RoboMed Lab
  • Gil Weinberg | Robotic Musicianship
  • Samuel Coogan | Safe Autonomy from Run-Time Assurance
  • Panos Tsiotras | Research Adventures at the intersection of Control and Robotics
  • Frank Dellaert | Factor Graphs for Action
  • Fumin Zhang | Maritime Robotic Sensing Networks
  • Kyriakos Vamvoudakis | Bridging Reinforcement Learning and Motion Planning
  • Sehoon Ha | Deep Reinforcement Learning for Legged Robots
  • Ellen Mazumdar | Sensors, Soft Actuators, and Robotic Systems
  • Ye Zhao | Resilient Locomotion and Manipulation: Symbolic-Decision-Aware Trajectory Optimization and Perception Considerations
  • Jun Ueda | Safe, Secure, and Stable Motion Control of Telemanipulators
  • Aaron Young | The EPIC lab: Assisting human locomotion and rehabilitation using wearable robotics and artificial intelligence (AI)
  • Zsolt Kira | Adaptive and Data-Efficient Robot Learning
  • Patricio Vela | Robot Autonomy from a Systems Perspective: Reliably Closing the Loop
  • Charlie Kemp | From One to Many: My Personal Quest for Meaningful Mobile Manipulation
  • Dhruv Batra | Robotics is too important to be left to the Roboticists

My hope is that this symposium will be a chance for us to introduce ourselves to the new PhD & MS students on campus, as well as a chance for each of us to get a better idea of what our IRIM colleagues are up to these days. With luck, by day's end there will be loads of new ideas, new collaborations, and even new friends!
