Robotics Research Jam Sessions

Since 2011, on occasion of the graduation of our Ph.D. students in Robotics, we invite distinguished guests in the jury and take the opportunity to build a very informal brainstorming workshop.
The casual style of arranging talk topics and the interaction of enthusiastic researchers creates an interesting "jam session" style, which we are repeating ever since.
