The University of Lincoln’s Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems (L-CAS) is hosting the Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems (TAROS) Conference 2021, with the support of the AgriFoRwArdS CDT.

The conference, being held online on 8th, 9th and 10th September 2021, offers a friendly environment for robotics researchers and industry to take stock and plan future progress. It welcomes senior researchers and research students alike and specifically provides opportunities for research students and young research scientists to present their work to the scientific community.

You can find out more about the conference, including the programme on the L-CAS website here.

You can register to attend the event via Eventbrite here.

Research and Industry Showcase Day – Friday, 10 September 2021 

With TAROS being fully virtual and online in 2021, we had to take the decision to change the originally planned industry and research showcase day to a virtual event as well. Consequently, we cordially invite industries and academic research labs, active in Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) research, to exhibit your innovative products, research and capabilities on Friday, 10th September in short online sessions. This can be just a short presentation of your capabilities and latest exciting results, or a live tour of your lab, or a presentation of your respective product or project. We trust you will participate in this virtual exhibition and enjoy the comfort of demonstrating from your respective labs or offices. You will be given a 15-minutes slot to present yourself to the audience of TAROS, engage with the participants and increase the visibility of your robotics research and products, free of charge!

Please register directly on Eventbrite with the ticket type “Industry & Research Showcase Day Application“, which will ask you for a short description of your activity and a title so you can be featured in the programme. The programme committee will cluster the contributions thematically to put together an attractive programme. Please register your interest to be part of the showcase exhibition by Sunday, 15th August 2021. The session will be hosted on Zoom. The programme committee reserves the right to not accommodate all requested presentations in case of oversubscription of the event or out-of-scope proposals. The programme committee will confirm your session slot by 31/8/2021.

We’ll be happy to offer you more guidance and support should you have any queries. Please contact the TAROS Industry Support Chair, Prof Mini C. Saaj, to discuss your participation (
