Show details
Competition/Challenge , Conference/Workshop
The 26th IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication, RO-MAN 2017, will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, from August 28 to September 1, 2017. This symposium is a leading forum where state-of-the-art innovative results, the latest developments as well as future perspectives relating to robot and human interactive communication are presented and discussed.

At the conference, a ERL (European Robotics League) Service Robots (ERL-­SR) challenge will take place that aims at bringing together the benefits of scientific benchmarking with the attraction of robot competitions in the realm of domestic service robotics, where robots interact with humans to help them in the domestic chores. Thus, RO-MAN 2017 being hosted by Lisbon, where one of the ERL-SR test beds is located, was an unique opportunity to hold a ERL-SR Major Tournament co-located with the conference, simultaneously making it the conference Competitions Track.

At the RO-MAN 2017, the information about the ERL-SR competitions will be regularly updated at https://sites.google.com/site/erlsrroman2017/ . On 31 August afternoon, a tour to visit IST Robotics Labs and see the finals of the competitions will be organised. On 1 September, one of the Workshops will focus on robot competitions.
