The Only Practice-Based Conference about Robot Programming with ROS in the World
REGISTER NOW2020 recap

Welcome to 


ROS Developers Day is an annual hands-on robot programming online event for ROS developers worldwide. This virtual conference aims to connect ROS developers from around the world to Practice, Learn, and Share the latest ROS applications together in real-time, regardless of geographical limitations.

Unlike the normal slideshow-type conference, this is a hands-on event with a focus on practice. Every attendee will program the robot and reproduce the ROS projects’ results together in real-time while following the speakers’ demonstrations.

What you can expect

You’ll walk away with practical knowledge and action steps in order to use your ROS force to power the world’s robots!

What is ROS (Robot Operating System) cover

12h of

Hands-on ROS

You’ll get a ready-to-run ROS project (rosject) provided by each speaker. With the rosjects, you’ll be able to launch the robot simulations, access the projects’ code, start developing control algorithms… in real-time on any type of computer while the speakers are presenting, and without any previous setup on your side.

Learn from Top

ROS Developers

We will select 10 robotics experts from top universities and companies, who are also pioneering ROS Developers with years of experience in using ROS. You will have the opportunity to “touch” and experience their fascinating ROS projects.

Connect the

ROS World

This is the event for our ROS Developers! Talk, program… and connect with other ROS Developers from all over the world. Not only will there be tons of great ROS content, but also a chance to work together to power the world’s robots!

    Tutorial & Submission Requirements
    • Tutorials can target any field of ROS1 or ROS2.
    • Proposals should be in the form of a tutorial and should focus on practice, in order to provide a real practical presentation for participants. (Please check the ROSDevCon 2020 to see how it works.)
    • Please note the tutorial should last 40 min, plus 15 min for Q&A.

    The submission of a tutorial must contain the following information:

    1. Topic Title: ( Maximum 20 Words) Catchy titles are good, just make sure they speak to the content.

    5. Special Requirements (Powerpoint, microphone, or other issues)

    Please send your proposal with the above information to tutorials@rosdevday.com.

    If your tutorial is accepted

    You will have to prepare a rosject containing the following material (We will assign you an engineer to support you in creating the rosject):

    • A notebook with the tutorial
    • Package with pre-defined code for participants (reference: how to create a rosject)

    The proposals we accepted in the past came from Clarkson University, University Rey Juan Carlos, Sony Corporation, Open Robotics, PAL Robotics, etc.
