Welcome Message

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.

If you are interested in giving a poster presentation or a 15-minutes' oral presentation about your research findings on the conference site, without publishing your full paper in the conference proceeding, you can choose to attend the conference as a Presenter. 

As a presenter, you will be encouraged to submit the title and abstract of your presentation before register. For further information, please contact us via iwosr@hksra.org.

Oral Presentation Guideline

15 mins(including 2-3 mins Q&A)

People vary in their ability to speak confidently in public, but everyone gets nervous and everyone can learn how to improve their presentation skills by applying a few simple techniques. The main points to pay attention to in delivery are the quality of your voice, your rapport with the audience, the use of notes and the use of visual aids. Voice quality involves attention to volume, speed and fluency, clarity and pronunciation. The quality of your voice in a presentation will improve dramatically if you are able to practice beforehand in a room similar to the one you will be presenting in. Rapport with the audience involves attention to eye contact, sensitivity to how the audience is responding to your talk and what you look like from the point of view of the audience. These can be improved by practicing in front of one or two friends or videotaping your rehearsal.
