You are cordially invited to the IEEE Queensland Section's Annual General Meeting and Dinner to be held at St Leo s College, University of Queensland on the evening of Thursday 28th November 2013. This annual event will provide networking opportunities with fellow engineers and leading professionals in the community.
This year our guest dinner speaker is Professor Peter Corke, an IEEE Fellow and faculty member at Queensland University of Technology. Professor Corke is editor-in-chief of the IEEE Robotics & Automation magazine, and a recipient of the Qantas/Rolls-Royce and Australian Engineering Excellence awards.
He is well known for his research in vision-based robot control, field robotics and wireless sensor networks. Prior to joining QUT in 2010 Professor Corke was a senior principal research scientist at CSIRO where he founded the Autonomous Systems laboratory, a 50-person team undertaking research in mining, ground, aerial and underwater robotics, as well as sensor networks. With underwater mining technology currently in the news, Professor Corke's talk is certain to be entertaining and informative.
