International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems

September 22, 2017

The 2017 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2017) will be held in Vancouver, Canada, September 24–28, 2017. The theme of IROS 2017 is “Friendly People, Friendly Robots”. Robots and humans are becoming increasingly integrated in various application domains. We work together in factories, hospitals and households, and share the road. This collaborative partnership of humans and robots gives rise to new technological challenges and significant research opportunities in developing friendly robots that can work effectively with, for, and around people.

IROS will be 30 years old in Vancouver. To celebrate this important milestone, we are soliciting from the IROS community mementos in IROS history.   Your contributions can be photos, videos or any memorbilia.  For details, please refer to the Call for Contributions. The contributions will be organized and, if selected, displayed on conference website and at IROS 2017.  In addition, all contributions will be reviewed by the IROS@30 committee, and the winner of each category will be announced with a cash reward of $300 at the IROS 2017 conference banquet on September 26. So, email us your 30 years of IROS celebration contributions to [email protected], today!
