Project workshop at the Northern Arts and Science Network

posted 28 Mar 2011 05:35 by Alan Winfield

On Saturday 19th March we held a very well attended workshop on the project, at Leeds Met University, as part of the 2011 conference of the Northern Arts and Science Network: Dialogues. We had a small portable arena with 8 e-puck robots and, judging by the feedback, the session was very well received.
