Why should I participate?
The practical application of robots to real world problems has been made possible by a number of enabling technologies, from high speed computation (which enabled the first CNC machines) to LIDAR (which enables most of today's autonomous vehicles).
TePRA's goals are:
1. to expose robot designers to new enabling tools, techniques, and technologies
2. to expose tool, technique, and technology developers to the needs of robot designers
TePRA invites you to come and share:
1. new tools, techniques and technologies that may be of use in the robotics field
2. new practical applications of robots that could benefit from a technical/technology breakthrough
Papers and Posters:
Participants interested in presenting a paper for either an oral or poster presentation, should submit an abstract (500 words maximum) by February 15, 2008. Authors should emphasize either the utility of particular tools, techniques, or technology to enable practical robot applications, or the need of particular practical robot applications for tools, techniques, or technology. Abstract submission instructions can be found below.
We invite interested companies to participate in the Technology Exhibits on robotics and related components and technologies relevant to the robotics field. The exhibits will be featured prominently for all attendees during breaks. Interested parties must submit an exhibit registration form, available on the conference web site.
The call for exhibits is open to any organization involved in the robotics and related manufacturing, research and development areas. The exhibits should present products/prototypes of robotic devices and/or robotic related technologies of reasonable physical sizes. See web site for details.
There will be an opportunity for robot demonstration at the conference. The demonstrations will be limited to those who have accepted papers at the conference. Full details will be posted on the conference web site after January 1, 2008.
We invite interested participants to submit a proposal to give a tutorial on robotics and related components and technologies relevant to the robotics field. Interested parties must submit an abstract of the tutorial. Further details are available on the conference web site.
The conference is seeking companies interested in sponsorship opportunities. In addition, the conference will offer a limited number of supporting organization sponsorships to non-profit, industry and other affiliate organizations who can make a significant contribution to the promotion of this conference. See the conference website for details.
