ROBOT'2015: Second Iberian Robotics Conference will take place at Hotel Tivoli-Oriente, Lisbon, Portugal (November 19-21, 2015) and follows the First Iberian Robotics Conference held in Madrid in 2013. This previous and successful event, both from the viewpoint of their scientific and technical quality, and for the important number of attending delegates, have motivated us in organizing ROBOT 2015.
ROBOT'2015 main goal is to continue the precedent efforts in showing the robotic research and development of new applications in the Iberian Peninsula. Although focused on the works developed at Iberia the conference is open for good quality submissions from any country in the world.
As in previous editions the conference proceedings will be published by Springer - Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing Series, indexed by Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge and SCOPUS. Extended versions of the conference best papers will also be published in Special Issues from top Journals.
Robot’2015 is Organized by: SPR – Sociedade Portuguesa de Robótica, SEIDROB – Sociedad Española para la Investigación y Desarrollo en Robótica and GTROB - Grupo de Robótica de CEA. The event is co-located with RoCKIn Competition 2015.
Robot’2015 will feature 21 special sessions and a Tech Transfer and Innovation Session. This session will be focused in the connection between academia and industry for knowledge transfer. The objective is to look for successful projects about startup companies, collaborative projects academia-industry, patent licensing or technical assistance to the industry that means a real translation of the research results to innovative products or services in the field of robotics. The international tech knowledge projects where are involved Portuguese and Spanish entities, like the European Frame Program, CYTED, INTERREG, MED, EUREKAS, IBEROEKA and others, are especially welcome. You are welcome to send a short paper about your knowledge transfer history for participate in this session. The session will be complemented with the participation of a Spanish techno park and a Portuguese techno park in order to detail the services provide by these entities and an expert in the scope of Portuguese-Spanish collaborative innovation projects.
