The 2021 International Workshop on Service Robotics (IWoSR 2021) is organized by the Hong Kong Society of Robotics and Automation (HKSRA) and it will be held in Chengdu, China, during November 7-9, 2021.
Robotics technology have found more and more applications in our daily life. Service robots can significantly improve the quality of our lives in different ways by providing improved safety, efficiency and productivity using robotics technology. Service robots cover a range of robots such as field robots, construction robots, agriculture robots, cleaning robots, logistics robots, medical robots, and humanoid robots. By 2021, the professional service robots market is expected to reach 37 billion US dollars. However, there are still a lot of significant challenges involved in the research and development of service robots.
In order to promote the research and development of service robotics technologies, the 2021 International Workshop on Service Robotics is organized to bring together robotics researchers and engineers from all over the world to exchange their views on theoretical and application challenges of service robots. A primary objective of the Conference is to facilitate the development of service robots using multidisciplinary approaches and the transfer of results and knowledge in a collaborative, open-minded environment. For that reason, policy makers, stakeholders and experts from other disciplines, are as well encouraged to participate and to bring motivations and challenges for new scientific progresses in the area of service robotics.
IWoSR 2021 will be held in the beautiful city Chengdu, China. During the three days, the Conference will include plenary lectures, keynote lectures, oral presentations and poster presentations.
