56th International Symposium on Robotics (ISR Europe) | September 26-27, 2023
Call for Papers


Welcome address by the Chair of the ISR Europe 2023

Robotics technologies are in an active process of convergence towards innovative solutions with great benefit for all mankind. We roboticists are at the forefront of this development, combining Industry 4.0 and AI trends with established use cases from the industry. Robots are increasingly taking over dangerous, dull or painful tasks Recent years have shown many interesting developments that can be published at the ISR, making it the ideal platform for presenting your research results to the community.

The 56th International Symposium on Robotics – ISR Europe 2023 – will be held in Stuttgart, Germany on September 26-27 2023. This international conference is jointly organized by the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units (ISW) at the University of Stuttgart and the Information Technology Society (ITG) within the Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies (VDE) in collaboration with the Mechanical Engineering Society Industry Association (VDMA). The ISR Europe 2023 will be complemented by an exhibition area including exhibits by the Scientific Society for Assembly, Handling and Industrial Robotics (MHI). The program is completed by the evening event at the traditional Cannstatt Folk Festival.

In two conference tracks over two days, the ISR Europe 2023 will offer an insight into state-of-the-art robot technologies to participants from both industry and
research. Selected Special Sessions for ROS Industrial and Service Robot Meeting include Modeling, Planning and Control, as well as Components and Technologies or Future Industrial and Service Robotics Applications. The Business Track will offer invited speakers from the industry the opportunity topresent current product developments.

We would be honored to personally greet researchers and experts from the field of robotics in Stuttgart on September 26-27, 2023. Please submit your full paper for ISR Europe 2023 and we will do our best to provide an attractive program for the upcoming conference.

We are looking forward to receiving your submissions.
