A Play Within a Play? No—a Meeting Within a Meeting @ AUVSI in SF (7/18)!
Surely you remember William Shakespeare’s literary device in Hamlet–that of having a play within a play? It contains this line: “Our wills and fates do so contrary run, That our devices still are overthrown . . .”
The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) is the world’s largest nonprofit organization devoted exclusively to advancing the unmanned systems and robotics community–you could say, ensuring that our devices are not overthrown, but instead run orderly, effectively and safely for the advancement of all Serving more than 7,500 members from government organizations, industry and academia, AUVSI is “committed to fostering, developing, and promoting unmanned systems and robotics technologies. AUVSI members support defense, civil and commercial sectors.”
To advance this end, AUVSI is hosting a meeting within a meeting: a one-day conference for startups July 18th at the San Francisco Hilton, called “Startup Connection,” which brings investors, channel partners and OEMs together with startups, new ideas, and new technologies in an interactive format that combines demonstrations, presentations and Matchmaker Speed Networking. This meeting precedes AUVSI’s three-day Automated Vehicle Symposium.
