- Find your mentor!
The successful Fostering Interaction Between Robotists and Students (FIBRS) - Student/Chair Mentorship Program continues! At this year's ICRA and IROS, students can get involved in a fun way again! Get the behind the scenes exclusion of a conference! Students will get to directly see how sessions are synthesized, organized and structured. This program will also give you a chance to interact with key researchers in your field.
Shadowing a Session Chair: Students will be paired with a Session Chair, where you will learn how to run a session. After arriving early to the session you've signed up for and introducing yourself to the Session Chair, you will have the opportunity to observe how the Chair is coordinating the session up close. Afterwards, depending on the session chair's schedule, you should have the opportunity to ask questions relating to the session such as questions brought up in session, setup.
Students who are interested should first find out who they would like to work with, by reading the session guide and selecting a chair that they would like to be their mentor. Please email the name of the session, the date, and your relevant contact information. Keep in mind that people are occasionally very busy, so you may also wish to provide an alternative mentor name.
Rumor has it, the Field Robotics session Track 4 (Tuesday, May 4, 2010, 16:10-17:40) is looking for an enthusiastic co-chair.
