Thank you!

About 200 attendees from both industry and science followed about 100 presentations and got this way a perfect insight into the latest state-of-the-art of robot technologies. The main topics were Modeling, Planning and Control as well as Components and Technologies. Robotics in Production/Industrial Robots had also be addressed as well as Service Robotics.

The first ISR in 1970 was the first global robot conference in the world. In 2018, we were celebrating its 50th edition and it continues to be the world's leading robot conference! This is an outstanding achievement!

We would like to thank all participants, keynote speaker, the program comittee and session chairs as well as Messe München for the support and cooperation in the framwork of automatica.

We are looking forward to welcoming you again in 2020!

Service Robotics

The Place to be for Robotics - automatica, June 19–22, 2018

ISR 2018 is organized in conjunction with automatica, the leading exhibition for smart automation and robotics.

Service Robotics

ISR 2018 is organized in conjunction with automatica, the leading exhibition for smart automation and robotics.

automatica is the leading marketplace for automated production. It features the world‘s largest range of robotics, assembly solutions, machine vision systems and components. It gives companies from all branches of industry access to innovations, knowledge and trends with a great deal of business relevance. As the digital shift continues, automatica ensures market transparency and provides orientation with a clear objective: Being able to manufacture higher-quality products with greater efficiency. Professional service robotics will again be presented with its own exhibition sector. Here, manufacturers of service robots, service robotics components and turnkey products as well as renowned research organizations will present marketable products and innovative developments. Again, the simultaneous organization of the events will provide a number of benefits to the participants: The conference offers the latest results in the fields of research and development in robotics as well as in new applications.The trade show automatica will present the latest products, systems and components for assembly and handling, machine vision, industrial robotics and service robotics.

The Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau – VDMA) has its headquarters in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and represents around 3,200 members, making it the largest industry association in Europe. The Association represents the interests of the predominantly medium-sized companies in the mechanical engineering industry towards policymakers and society, as well as towards business, the scientific community, public authorities and the media.

With 40,000 members (including 1,300 companies) the VDE Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies is one of the largest technical and scientific associations in Europe. VDE embraces science, standardization work and product testing and certification under one roof. VDE is involved in technical knowledge transfers, research and promoting young talents in the key technologies of electrical engineering, electronics and information technology and their applications. Other key VDE activities include ensuring safety in electrical engineering, developing recognized technical regulations as national and international standards as well as testing and certifying electrical and electronic devices and systems. VDE works in the fields of information technology, energy, medical engineering, microelectronics, micro and nanotechnology and automation.
