Scope & Topics


This symposium focuses on various aspects of international research, applications and trends of robotic Innovations for the benefit of humanity, advanced human-robot systems, and applied technologies, e.g. in the fields of robotics, telerobotics, simulator platforms, and environment and mobile work machines. This includes virtual reality/augmented reality and 3D modeling and simulation.

The symposium will consist of keynote presentations on the state-of-the-art technology, workshops, and topical panels.

All papers will be peer-reviewed and will be published under IMEKO and IEEE Guidelines.
