International Robot Developer Conference „ROSCon 2013“ to be held in Stuttgart, Germany, May 11-12

08.05.2013
Fraunhofer IPA to host 2nd annual meeting of world wide developer community dedicated to the leading Open Source Robot Operating System ROS
From May 11-12, 2013, „ROSCon 2013“ will be held in Stuttgart, Germany. ROSCon is the international annual meeting of the world wide developer community dedicated to the leading Open Source Robot Operating System ROS. Following the success of the inaugural ROSCon in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA in 2012, this year’s host will be the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA.

The conference will take place at University of Stuttgart Campus (near to Fraunhofer IPA), Pfaffenwaldring 47, D-70569 Stuttgart, Germany.

The two-day program – Saturday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to 5.45 p.m. and Sunday, May 12, from 9 a.m. to 6.15 p.m. – will comprise about 35 lectures, in-depth presentations, lightning talks, technical talks and tutorials highlighting different aspects and perspectives of the „Robot Operating System“ ROS. Moreover, twelve international companies and sponsors will display their products and services related to robotics in an exhibition accompanying the conference.

In robotics research, ROS is a widely spread and firmly established open source framework providing a wide range of software tools and components for robotics applications. Due to its importance and popularity, ROS is also about to enter industrial and commercial applications. To accelerate this process Fraunhofer IPA has already held an international workshop on this issue at the institute’s congress center attended by more than hundred researchers and experts with scientific and industrial background, in autumn 2012.

ROSCon 2013 will give you an exclusive glimpse behind the scenes and a fascinating insight into actual and future trends in robotics. You are welcome to be present in the first row when the ROS developer community will discuss their most recent projects and visions.

For more details regarding the conference and its timetable see http://roscon.ros.org/
We are looking forward to meet you – or your colleague – as a correspondent during our conference, to bring you into contact with robotics experts from all over the world and to answer any questions you have.

In case you are not able to attend yourself, we will be pleased to provide you with material from the conference – just let us know.

See you in Stuttgart on May 11-12, 2013!

Yours sincerely,
Florian Weißhardt Alexander Bubeck

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

Im Focus: Hydrogen Bonds Directly Detected for the First Time

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.

Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
