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, Fraunhofer IPA, and the Information Technology Society (ITG) within the Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies (VDE), supported by VDMA Robotics + Automation.
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. A special session will be held for ROS-Industrial. In the ROS-Industrial Community Meeting, new technical and scientific developments made by the ROS-Industrial community will be presented and discussed. The meeting will focus on open-source robot software and applications including navigation, manipulation, motion planning, software engineering and hardware interfaces.
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.
