The submission deadline for the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) 2014 is Feb. 5, 2014.  This is an especially exciting conference to submit to because it is being held in Chicago, and NxR Prof. Kevin Lynch is acting as the General Chair of the conference.  Additionally, professors Brenna Argall and Todd Murphey are on the local planning committee.

Every spring McCormick students compete for glory and prizes, running their robots against competitors and a challenging track. Taems of students design, build, and program their robots to operate autonomously. Often teams are cross-departmental, and students of all years work together, learning from one another.

This year 13 teams have built autonomous robots that will search out and capture smaller, autonomous "prey" robots. The robot that captures the most "prey" wins!
