This one-day event is a celebration of Pi Wars, bringing together veterans and newbies, with a programme featuring both longer presentations and lightning talks.
The University of Cambridge is kindly allowing us to host the event at the Roger Needham Building in Cambridge on Saturday October 5th 2019. The Roger Needham Building is right next to the usual Pi Wars venue.
We have an auditorium with a capacity of 180 people, a large lobby area with stands for our exhibitors, and a breakout room as a display area for showing off robots. Please do bring your robot if you can, and tell people about it in the breaks!
You must have a ticket to attend this event, and there will be no tickets for sale on the door!

If that wasn't enough, we will also have a free raffle with prizes donated by our amazing sponsors.
We are especially grateful to the University of Cambridge Information Services and the University of Cambridge Department of Computer Science and Technology who are funding the catering for this event.
