TePRA 2013 - IEEE Conference on Technologies for Practical Robot Applications
The 5th Annual IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Practical Robot Applications (TePRA) will be held in the Greater Boston Area, Massachusetts, USA on 22-23 April 2013. TePRA is aimed at catalyzing the development of enabling technologies and encouraging their adoption by robot designers. With an emphasis on practical applications and industrial participation, TePRA provides researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs and robotics professionals with a forum balanced between an academic conference and an exhibition, while presentations are selected through IEEE's rigorous peer-review process.
As an emerging robotics conference, past TePRA programs included more than 150 technical paper and poster presentations combined, robot demonstrations, student competitions sponsored by iRobot, panel sessions and exhibits
This year's conference will feature:
- Rodney Brooks, Rethink Robotics
- Henrik I. Christensen, Georgia Institute of Technology
- Helen Greiner, CyPhy Works
- Jeffrey J. Jaczkowski, RSJPO
- Mark Micire, NASA
- Ohad Shvueli, PrimeSense
The conference theme this year will be new technologies in robotics and automation and their practical applications.
