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: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

Im Focus: Explanation for puzzling quantum oscillations has been found

So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics

Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...

Next-generation gravitational wave detector in space will complement LIGO on Earth

The historic first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes far outside our galaxy opened a new window to understanding the universe. A...

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

Im Focus: Computer-Designed Customized Regenerative Heart Valves

Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.

Producing living tissue or organs based on human cells is one of the main research fields in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering, which involves growing...
