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: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: Successful Mechanical Testing of Nanowires

With innovative experiments, researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrums Geesthacht and the Technical University Hamburg unravel why tiny metallic structures are extremely strong

Light-weight and simultaneously strong – porous metallic nanomaterials promise interesting applications as, for instance, for future aeroplanes with enhanced...
