We’re pleased to announce that registration is now open for the Drones & Aerial Robotics Conference, the first-of-its-kind, massively multi-disciplinary event to examine civilian drones and their impact on society. DARC brings together a wide spectrum of hobbyists, engineers, academics, activists, lawyers, policy makers, and industry professionals for a weekend of meaningful conversation, as well as the construction of concrete proposals and new applications of hardware and software.
More than a conference about the law, DARC will be a weekend of practical learnings from engineers, backyard hobbyists, drone journalists, and manufacturers of multimillion dollar aircraft, and will foster constructive discourse around the anxieties and aspirations attached to this emerging technology.
You can register for DARC by visiting droneconference.org/register. We’re offering early bird registration pricing at a 20% discount through July, so be sure to take advantage of our special rate.
Many of you may have also seen our Call for Proposals. In just the last few weeks we have received an incredibly diverse range of proposals covering topics ranging from comparative drone law, general aviation and rural resistance, satellite recon, sensor journalism, drone spotting, and vaccine delivery.
Because of the tremendous response, we’re extending the submission deadline a bit longer, so keep sharing your ideas for DARC! We invite contributions from all interested disciplines on or before June 30, 2013. Proposals can be submitted at droneconference.org/proposals.
We look forward to seeing you in New York City!
