SEIDROB

Spanish Society for Research and Development in Robotics

SEIDROB was established in November 2011 in response to the growing interest in research and development in robotics, integrating the efforts of existing associations, groups and networks. The founding members were researchers from seven universities and three research centres who were actively involved in five associations related to robotics and other fields considered of interest to its future application and development.

SEIDROB invites all members of the Spanish robotics research and development community to join and participate in its activities, seek collaboration and contribute to the development of robotics in Spain.

Call for Papers

ROBOT2022 – Fifth Iberian Robotics Conference 

http://iberianroboticsconf.eu/

November 23-25, 2022

Zaragoza – Spain

—————————————————————————-

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to inform you that ROBOT2022 – Fifth Iberian Robotics Conference will be held at the Paraninfo Building of the University of Zaragoza during November 23-25, 2022, following the four previous and successful events, both from the viewpoint of their scientific and technical quality, and for the important number of attending delegates, of the Iberian Robotics Conference held in Madrid in 2013, Lisbon in 2015, Seville in 2017 and Porto in 2019.

ROBOT2022 main goal is to continue the precedent efforts in showcasing the robotics research and development of new applications in the Iberian Peninsula. Although focused on the works developed at Iberia, the conference is open for submissions from any country in the world.

ROBOT2022 will feature technical and social programs. The technical program will comprise plenary, regular and special sessions. All articles submitted for inclusion in the conference will be peer reviewed before acceptance. It is envisaged that all accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, which will be published by Springer – Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing Series, indexed by Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge and SCOPUS, subject to registration of at least one author for presenting the work. A selection of the conference-presented best papers will also be recommended for publication as extended versions in Special Issues from international top ranked Journals.

CONFERENCE SCOPE

We invite original contributions in all areas relevant to robotics, covering mobile, walking, flying, marine, underwater, and industrial robots. The conference will cover analysis (modelling and simulation) techniques, design approaches, and practical applications and realisations of developed robotic systems. Support technologies for realisation of such systems, namely sensors and actuators, computer vision and image processing, tactile & haptics devices, control algorithms and architectures, localization, mapping and navigation, associated economic, ethical, legal and social considerations are integral part of the conference theme. Human-robot interaction, including medical robots, exoskeletons, prostheses and orthoses, as well as personal and service robots forms an increasingly active and important pertinent area. A non-exhaustive list of topics and activities can be found on the website.

Premios mejor TFM y PhD en robótica

Se han convocado los premios a mejor TFM en Robótica (ámbito nacional) organizado por SEIDROB y mejor PhD en Robótica (España y Portugal) organizado conjuntamente por SEIDROB y SPR (Sociedade Portuguesa de Robótica).
Los premios se entregarán durante la conferencia ROBOT2022 que tendrá lugar en Zaragoza desde el 23 hasta el 25 de noviembre de 2022 y a la que estás invitado a participar.

Las convocatorias de ambos premios se encuentran en: https://seidrob.es/premios/

Recordatorio renovación membresía

Está ya abierta la campaña de afiliación a SEIDROB para el año 2022. La membresía expira cada año y es necesario renovarla si se desea seguir siendo miembro. 

El 2022 va a ser un año con diversas actividades (después del parón de 2020 y 2021 debidos a la pandemia) que culminará con la quinta Conferencia Ibérica de Robótica ROBOT2022 (en la que esperamos verte), que tendrá lugar en Zaragoza del 23 al 25 de noviembre de ese mismo año. También se van a convocar en un breve plazo los premios a la mejor tesis doctoral Ibérica y al mejor TFM.

Además, la membresía te permitirá participar en la conferencia ROBOT2022 con un precio reducido, así como participar en la convocatoria de los premios mencionados.

Recuerda que a partir de este año la cuota de socio individual (de número) de 45 euros, la de estudiante de 10€, y la institucional de 200€  te garantizará la afiliación durante dos años (2022 y 2023), como fue acordado en la Asamblea General de 21 de noviembre de 2019.
