[Summary by: Kostas Bekris]

The tutorial took place on October 11, one day before the start of the main IROS conference. Approximately 60 people attended it, overflowing the available space. The entire presentation, close to 6 hours, was offered by Steve LaValle, while the audience had plenty of questions and comments about the material.

Slides from the presentation, as well as a tutorial article on the material can be found on Steve LaValle's webpage.

Informal Meet-And-Greet at IROS'09

We are planning an informal meet-and-greet during IROS in St. Louis next week over a leisurely dinner and/or drinks. Three out of the four co-chairs will be attending, which makes this an excellent opportunity to get to know one another and discuss future activities for the TC and exciting research directions.

We will meet on Sunday, Oct. 11 at 7:30pm in the Hyatt bar.

Please email Kris Hauser ( if you would like to attend.

We hope to see many of you at IROS!
