It is with sincere regret that NDIA must cancel the 2013 Ground Robotics Capabilities Conference & Exhibition in Atlanta, GA originally scheduled for April 29 – May 1, 2013.
As you may be aware, on January 10, 2013 the Department of Defense issued a memorandum detailing actions to be taken to prepare for drastic budget cuts resulting from sequestration and/or related fiscal challenges. Since then, further government guidance has been released, curtailing all but mission critical travel for government employees, staff, and leaders. This, coupled with the implementation of sequestration on March 1, has rendered the conduct of the planned Ground Robotics Capabilities Conference & Exhibition in Atlanta, GA no longer possible.
All registered Attendees, Exhibitors, and Sponsors will receive a full refund of fees paid. Registrants are reminded that they are responsible for cancelling their own hotel reservations, and other travel–related arrangements.
The Ground Robotics Capabilities Conference & Exhibition has proven to be an important venue for industry and government to have an open dialogue for identifying the technologies that will be needed to meet the future requirements of the Warfighter. In lieu of the annual conference and exhibition this year, NDIA’s Robotics Division is considering alternative activities to benefit industry members engaged in ground robotics market sectors. As those plans develop, we will advise you accordingly.
