With 8,000 attendees expected both online and on site, the hybrid event will take place at the Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center.
Under the theme ‘Robots For All’, academics, researchers and industry representatives will try to reach out to the public and convince them of the potential everyday benefits of robotics.
The program of the conference will include a cooperation with ARS Electronica, a ‘Long Day of the Robots’ exhibition, open to the public, in the industry hub and the finals of a school competition to create the best dancing robot.
Christian Woronka, Director B2B Management and Head of the Vienna Convention Bureau, said: “The choice for Vienna once again confirms the city’s role as an international science and research location. Furthermore, ICRA shows that future-oriented technologies and personal meetings are not contradictory. On the contrary: with community programs, the topic of robotics and automation, a field that is often difficult to grasp, will also be brought closer to the general public. An exciting approach and a great congress, which we look forward to with great anticipation.”
