Minos 2012 Micromouse ConferenceMinos is upon us. It is now possible to register for the 2012 Minos event which takes place on April 14th and 15th at Royal Holloway, University of London., Our twelfth weekend conference on micromouse and other robotics related matters follows the success of previous MINOS events. We will also run a contest on the Sunday

On-line booking now available via the Royal Holloway website

CATERING
Registration includes tea/coffee breaks, but not lunches, on Saturday and Sunday. Lunch can be bought on campus. We plan to go out for a dinner on Saturday evening, all pay their own way.

SPEAKING
Please email Peter Harrison separately with offers to speak. We have variable length slots. A broad spread of people will be attending ranging from schools and undergraduate mouse builders to seasoned campaigners. Contributions would be welcome in all relevant areas, particularly:

  • controllers
  • algorithms
  • chassis design
  • sensor design
  • motor control
  • lego

We want the event to have an informal atmosphere, so please do not be put off making a contribution by worrying about the level of presentation. What we want is people’s experience and insights. All contributions are welcome and you may have as little or as much time as you like (Well, within reason). Drop me an email, use the comment form below or the contact link for this site with some idea of what you might like to contribute and I will put you into the schedule.

We rely entirely on your contributions so don’t be shy and don’t think that you have nothing to offer – however simple or complex. Contributions need not be just about micromouse – other small robot-related subjects will also be of interest.

COMPETITION
There will be wall-following and full maze-solving competitions run as part of the conference, so please bring your mice! Prizes will be donated by Royal Holloway in the form of bottles of wine and/or chocolate depending on the age of the competitors.

SCHEDULE
The start time on Saturday and finish time on Sunday depend on the number of contributions we get, so we will finalise that nearer the date. We hope to start at about 10:30 on Saturday and finish about 13:00 on Sunday.

ENQUIRIES/INFORMATION
You may use the comments section below or the site contact form to seek further information or offer to present a slot.

Book early to avoid disappointment

    Peter, as I told you before, I’m planning to go, but I want to know if it is MANDATORY to inscribe a robot or can I go without any robot?

  2. Peter Harrison says:

    We welcome all-comers with or without robots, hardware or presentations. Just come along, see what people have to say and take advantage of the range of expertise there.
