ICRA brings together researchers from all around the world to discuss the cutting edge in robotics and automation. In addition, a large industrial exhibition as well as live demonstrations and challenges bring together students, developers and entrepreneurs seeking the latest developments and applications in robotics and automation.

Karlsruhe is located centrally in Europe and  home to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) as one of the leading research institutions in Germany and Europe, Fraunhofer Institutes (Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation /  Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation) as well as other major research institutions nearby. Many of these have confirmed to attend the conference and view the exhibits already.
  • Opportunity to showcase your products, publications and organization. The industrial exhibition will be located at the very heart of the conference venue in the Karlsruhe Congress Centre, thus attracting conference attendees to the exhibits and demonstrations throughout all of the conference.
