      · Technical Committee on Robotics

      The city of Salzburg is an architectural gem situated on the banks of the
      Salzach River and nestled between steep hills in the heart of Austria. A
      capital of culture and surrounded by natural beauty, Salzburg combines the
      charm of a smaller city with the excitement of a cosmopolitan center. Visitors
      to the city can explore Mozart's childhood home, capture breathtaking views
      from the walls of the 11th-century fortress of Hohensalzburg, dine at the
      oldest restaurant in Europe, a 7th century Benedictine monastery, and take a
      stroll through the many quaint squares or the beautiful Mirabell Gardens. As
      Mozart's birthplace and the setting for "The Sound of Music," it seems only
      natural that Salzburg is also a city brimming with musical performances and
      festivals that occur most days throughout the year. With so much to see and do,
      "the stage of the world" truly has something for everyone.

      This conference acts as an international forum for researchers and
      practitioners interested in the advances in and applications of robotics. It
      is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and
      ideas in these areas. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer
      reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee.
