What is Minos?

MINOS is a robotics conference, organised by the UK Micromouse and Robotics Society. It is held in the spring of each year and attracts attendees interested in many subjects related to small scale robotics. The first MINOS conference was held in 2000 at Royal Holloway College, London. In more recent years, it has found its home in the Midlands.

MINOS is a perfect opportunity for students, in particular, to present their work and projects as well as exchange information with other builders with an extensive international experience in the area.
