Hi!

I'm new to these forums, and I apologize that my first post is an advertisement, but I think a few of you may be interested in this: http://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/robotics-hardware/robobusiness-conference-beam-remote-presence-robot

"RoboBusiness teamed up with Suitable Technologies, a Silicon Valley robotics startup, to let people attend the conference using its Beam robot:  https://suitabletech.com/events/robobusiness-2013/

Suitable is charging $50 if you register before October 21; after that, the cost is $100. The company says people using the robot will be able to attend the exhibits and networking receptions (they are bringing 50 robots and will allocate them on a first come, first serve basis). Below are times when users can "Beam in":

Wednesday, October 23 - Reception: 6pm-8pm
Thursday, October 24 - Beam only during Expo (ideal for people in Europe): 8am-12pm
Thursday, October 24 - Expo: 12:00pm-5:30pm
Thursday, October 24 - Reception: 5:30pm-7:30pm
Friday, October 25: 8:00am-10:00am

RoboBusiness, which this year includes keynotes by Chris Urmson of Google and Paolo Pirjanian of iRobot (check out the full schedule here), is known as an unique gathering of executives, researchers, and investors who share an interest in helping the robotics industry grow and diversify. The discussions cover different market segments and technical domains. From experience, I can say that the value of the event increases when experts from different backgrounds are present to share new ideas. The hope is that, with the Beam robots available, we can still gather a diverse crowd of people from all over the world."
