The KAUST Research Conference on Robotics and Autonomy 2023

#RobotoKAUST 2023

 

After the success of #RobotoKAUST 2022 (check talks and posters here) and #RobotoKAUST 2021 (check talks here), we are excited to organize the 3rd #RobotoKAUST conference in May 2023. We invite you to join us on this exciting journey!

Over the past seven decades, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been supplying a major share of the oil used to power the world's economies for transportation of people and goods, electricity production, and a myriad of synthetic materials that most of us could not live without at this point in time. As of today, the Kingdom is investing heavily in food production, on the one hand, and tourism development, on the other hand. Food production is a challenge in a country often associated with the word "desert". Tourism is a big opportunity for a country whose beautiful marine environment, which comprises more and healthier coral reefs than anywhere else, easily competes with the most famous natural sites worldwide.

None of the foregoing activities can become significant without achieving significant economies of scale enabled, for the most part, by robotics and automation. The KAUST Research Conference on Robotics and Autonomy 2023 (#RobotoKAUST 2023) brings together leading scientists and engineers to present and discuss their work devoted to robotics as it pertains to marine and agricultural applications. While speakers are expected to talk about their preferred area of application, they will also be encouraged to think about the other area, hoping that successful technology transfers may happen from one to the other, with worldwide dissemination. By doing so, #RobotoKAUST 2023 will encourage the development of novel ideas where they are most commonly found, that is, at the interface between two essential fields of interest.

 

We are accepting abstracts for oral presentations and for scientific posters. See below for submission information. Stay tuned for more details about the conference. If you have inquiries, feel free to contact us at robotokaust@kaust.edu.sa

Call for Abstracts for Oral Presentations and Scientific Posters

During the #RobotoKAUST conference, we create space for presentations and discussions of systems, items, and methods related to robotics and autonomy. 


We are accepting abstracts for oral presentations. The presentations will be held in person at the KAUST campus or virtually over Zoom. You can find the Call for Abstracts and submit your abstract in the following page:

Call for Abstracts (Oral Presentation)
 

We also accept poster abstracts for digital posters. Posters will be displayed digitally in the KAUST Library during the RobotoKAUST Gala Meeting on May 9, 2023, allowing discussion among presenters and interested attendees. You can submit your poster abstracts in the following page:

RobotoKAUST: Contest

Following on from last year's successes, we are is back with a brand new contest, the RobotoKAUST: Short Robotics Story, Comics & Video Contest 2023. The contest is open to children, teenagers (TKS G1- G12 level), and adults.

We welcome entries in three different formats: stories, comics, and animated videos. In the following page,

The KAUST Research Conference on Robotics and Autonomy 2022

#RobotoKAUST

 

Following on from our successful online conference in Spring 2021, the KAUST RISC Lab hosted the KAUST Research Conference on Robotics and Autonomy 2022 (#RobotoKAUST 2022) from February 28 to March 2, 2022.

During the #RobotoKAUST conference,  presentations and discussions of systems, items, and methods related to robotics and autonomy took place. As part of this event, we accepted poster abstracts for digital posters.
Posters were displayed digitally in KAUST Library during the RobotoKAUST Gala Meeting on March 1, allowing discussion among presenters and interested attendees. 

The KAUST RISC Lab announced a brand new story contest, the RobotoKAUST: Short Robotics Story & Video Contest 2022.
The contest was open to children, teenagers (TKS G1- G12 level), and adults.

The RobotoKAUST: Short Robotics Story & Video Contest 2022 welcomed entries in three different formats: stories, videos, and animated videos. The winning stories were turned into video animations and are published on our YouTube Channel and RobotoEvents Website
