2008 IEEE International Conference on Practical Robot Technologies (TePRA) (TePRA '08)
Venue: Holiday Inn Select Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Nov 10, 2008||End Date/Time: Nov 11, 2008|
|Registration Date: Nov 11, 2008|
|Early Registration Date: Oct 10, 2008|
TePRA is a new conference aimed at catalyzing the development of enabling technologies and encouraging their adoption by robot designers.
How does it differ compared to other robotics conferences?
TePRA is positioned mid-way between an academic conference and a trade show. More so than academic conferences, TePRA emphasizes practical applications and industrial participation. More so than trade shows, TePRA has a serious review process, and is targeted at future applications.
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 todayâ€™s autonomous vehicles).
TePRAâ€™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
