Robotic Manipulation Reading Group
June 2022 Bianchini
This is the official paper archive of the Manipulation Reading Group started by members of Penn's DAIR Lab. The group meets weekly to go over papers devoted to robotic manipulation. Everyone is welcome. At the time of updating this post, our meetings occur in person, though feel free to reach out to me via email if you are not in the Philadelphia area and would like to request a virtual participation option.
