40th Anniversary of the IEEE Conference on Robotics and Automation

ICRA @40
23-26 September, 2024
Rotterdam, Netherlands

ICRA@40 is a unique edition to celebrate 40 years of research and deployment of robotics and automation. It will review the past and dwell on the future through a single-track format conference, composed of plenary presentations and brainstorming panels with the most renowned academics and industry experts on robotics and automation. 

In the last four decades, Robotics and Automation have transformed manufacturing, logistics and transportation. AI is now integral to robotics and automation and what was once science fiction is now a reality. Wearables, prostheses, and personal mobility devices can provide support and partial recovery for the disabled and elderly. Traditional hard and energy-hungry materials have given way to safer and more environmentally conscious designs, exploring advancements in soft and biological materials. These steady progresses have modified society’s views on what robotics and automation can and should offer. Yet, deployment of the technology in some areas has staggered and some of the technical and scientific challenges known 40 years ago remain. ICRA@40 will reflect on the past 40 years and outline immediate opportunities and long-term challenges in Robotics and Automation.
