The Venues:

The RRSS will be held at two locations.

The Perth Artifactory:

The practical development sessions will be held at the Perth Artifactory, Perth's very own Hackerspace! Equipped with facilities for both robot development as well as presentations, this location will be the ideal venue to allow attendees to gain a truly in-depth understanding of each others' robotics capabilities. Here attendees will join in developing real solutions to real-world problems. Further details about practical sessions will come soon!

The Perth Artifactory is located at Unit 8 / 16 Guthrie Street, Osborne Park, WA 6015. Plentiful on-site parking is available in the complex.
