MIT Hexacon 2013 World’s First Hexapod Conference (includes dance-off!)


MIT Hexacon 2013 World’s First Hexapod Conference (includes dance-off!).

The world’s first Hexapod Conference and Convention will be held on May 4th, 2013, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and we are accepting proposals for talks, workshops, and demonstrations.

The aim of this conference is to foster relationships between academics and non-academics working on hexapod (six-legged robot)-related topics. Additionally, a major aim of this convention is to have a lot of fun, especially since this conference is made possible by the DeFlorez Humor Fund.

Hexacon will take place at the MIT International Design Center on the third floor of building N52, right next to the MIT Museum.

Scholarships to cover travel and lodging of up to $100 will be awarded on a needs-based basis. To apply, please fill out this form: Additionally, if you seek lodging and are willing to couch-surf, we may be able to match you with an MIT student host for the duration of the event. Please fill out:

There will be a prize for the most humorous hexapod demonstration as well as the best presenter.
