UK-RAS Conference on ‘Robots into the Real World’, Friday 17th April 2020

We take great pleasure in welcoming students, researchers and experts in Robotics to Lincoln for the 3rd UK-RAS Conference for PhD Students & Early-Career Researchers.

The conference is specifically for PhD students & early-career robotics researchers of the UK-RAS Network and will foster progress in the field of robotics research at what promises to be a very comprehensive and exciting meeting.

This year’s theme covers ‘Robots into the Real World‘, exploring how robotics can make a positive difference to societal challenges, from fundamental enabling technologies to real-world applications, such as working in challenging and extreme environments; enabling healthy/independent living; ensuring safe, efficient transport; developing next-generation manufacturing; feeding a growing population and ensuring a safe environment for the future.

The aim of the #UKRAS20 conference is to promote quality research, networking, and community building for PhD students and practitioners at the frontier of science and technology in intelligent robots and systems, by discussing the latest advancements in this fast growing and exciting field.

The full programme will be released soon, but the event will include keynote speeches, presentations and posters from UK-RAS PhD students and early career researchers and live robot demos, as well as time for networking.
