The Israeli Conference on Robotics (ICR) is a biennial meeting,intended to provide a forum for Israeli and foreign researchers and engineers from industry and academia to discuss and exchange ideas on contemporary topics in robotics and automation. It is also intended to encourage local and international collaborations,and foster a viable robotics industry in Israel. Specific goals of ICR2013 are to promote robotics as a field of national priority, to promote innovation and support entrepreneurs in the robotics field, to promote robotics education, and to encourage the use of robotics and automation in the traditional industries, in agriculture, and in assisting the elderly population. The conference organization is lead by a steering committee that consists of senior representatives from industry and academia.
ICR2013 will host ISRACAS’ 2013, the 15th Israeli Symposium on Computer-Aided Surgery, Medical Robotics, and Medical Imaging.
The scientific program will include plenary talks on the current state of robotics worldwide, a panel discussion on the development of the robotics industry in Israel, an entrepreneurs forum, and presentations of contributed and invited papers in several technical tracks.
The scope of the conference covers topics that range from theoretical developments to industrial applications and emphasize current interests of the local robotics community and perceived needs of the Israeli industry and economy.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Robots in agriculture
Security and defense applications
Biologically inspired systems
