ONE DAY PERSONAL ROBOTICS SEMINAR
London West Hotel, SW6.    Wednesday 3rd July 1985

The organisers started off with a grand design for a three day seminar and exhibition and printed a nice four page Brochure.

However the number of registrants for the conference was below that anticipated and they issued a revised programme for a one day seminar.

List of Seminar Attendees

As far as I remember, speaker one - Joe Bosworth did not attend.
