Short CV

Ignacio Vizzo is a Research Assistant and Ph.D. Student at the University of Bonn since January 2019. He received his Electrical Engineering Degree from Universidad Nacional de Rosario, Argentina in December 2015. In the 2 years preceding his Ph.D. he worked for iRobot (USA) on Software development, developing behaviors, and working on the navigation system for lawn-care consumer robots. Before starting in the robotics world, he worked for 2 years in the Energy Industry, doing field testing in diverse power generation plants (hydroelectric, solar, etc). During this time he developed a novel 3D-SVPWM algorithm to control a 3-phase power inverter.

  • C. Stachniss, I. Vizzo, L. Wiesmann, and N. Berning, How To Setup and Run a 100\% Digital Conf.: DIGICROP 2020, 2020.
    [BibTeX] [PDF]

    The purpose of this record is to document the setup and execution of DIGICROP 2020 and to simplify conducting future online events of that kind. DIGICROP 2020 was a 100\% virtual conference run via Zoom with around 900 registered people in November 2020. It consisted of video presentations available via our website and a single-day live event for Q&A. We had around 450 people attending the Q&A session overall, most of the time 200-250 people have been online at the same time. This document is a collection of notes, instructions, and todo lists. It is not a polished manual, however, we believe these notes will be useful for other conference organizers and for us in the future.
