The 42nd International Symposium on Robotics (ISR) is fully integrated into the Automate Conference. Rather than separate tracks just for ISR attendees, it is treated as one conference, allowing ISR participants to learn not only about the latest in robotics, but also the newest developments in the other technologies covered at Automate. Register for the Automate 2011 Conference and attend these informative robotics-related sessions of special interest to ISR participants:

The Fundamentals of Robotics, Robotics System Integration Advances in Robotics Research, New Developments in Robot Safety, The Latest Developments in Service Robotics, Cost Justifying Automation, Advances in Robotic Vision, The Latest Developments in Human-Machine Interfaces and more.


ISR Gala Dinner and Engelberger Robotics Awards

RIA also will host a Gala Dinner on Tuesday, Mach 22 as part of the ISR, featuring the presentation of the annual Engelberger Robotics Awards, the industry's highest honor.  It is expected that Joseph Engelberger, for whom the awards are named, will appear at the dinner -- he is now in his 80s and travels only on rare occasions, so this would be quite exciting for everyone in attendance.

The ISR also will feature a Dinner and Blues Bash on Wednesday, March 23, at legendary blues club, Buddy Guy's.
