Mailing list

The euRobotics mailing list is used for disseminating technical, academic, industrial, educational and practical information about robotics in general, and about the activities of euRobotics. It has become the most important source of communication within the Robotics Community.

To be able to receive, post and read the archive of messages please subscribe on:

FAQ

  • Do I have to be a member to join the mailing list?

No, you do not have to be a euRobotics member to join the mailing list.

  • How do I subscribe to the mailing list?

All you have to do is to visit our subscription http://sympa.eu-robotics.net/wws//subscribe/community and insert your e-mail. You will be sent an email requesting confirmation.

Since there are currently some technical issues, password reset or registration mails might not be sent on time. We’re working on a solution and will inform you soon via the website. More information on the list subscribing/ unsubscribing mechanism will be published here.

  • How can I enable the "digest" option?

To configure the list, e.g. setting the “digest” mode to get all the information of the day in one summarizing mail, you need to log in at the Sympa system at https://sympa.eu-robotics.net/wws//info/community and set the “receiving mode” to digest.

  • What goes on the mailing list?

Anything that subscribers send, that the mailing list moderator thinks is of interest to the group. In practice, mostly job opportunities and event notifications, sometimes more philosophical and ethical questions about robotics for discussion. NO commercial adverts.

  • Can I see old messages from euron-dist and euRobotics-dist?

At the moment, only the archive from May 2018 on is publicly visible. We'll check whether the old archive can be made available under GDPR.

  • Who gets my email address?

This is a protected collection of e-mail addresses, which means that the list of subscribers is not available. The mail addresses are only stored to keep you informed via this list and not used for any other purpose.


History

The euRobotics mailing list is the major means of communication among the European robotics community. The system was established in 2001 under the EURON NoE project, financed 100% by the European Commission. Software and server space were provided by the Fraunhofer Institute IAIS in Germany; moderation was executed by KUL in Leuven. As EURON distribution list, as it was called, it grew steadily. As a result of the merger of EURON and EUROP, it was handed over to euRobotics, the successor organisation of EURON and EUROP.
The euRobotics mailing list has now more than 5500 recipients, with about 10 new subscribers added every week.
