Automate 2015 to Host International Symposium on Robotics

POSTED 09/12/2014

Automate 2015 to Host ISR(Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA) The Association for Advancing Automation (A3) announced today that Automate 2015 will host the International Symposium on Robotics (ISR). Automate 2015, North America’s broadest automation solutions trade show and conference, is being held March 23-26, 2015 in Chicago.

Sponsored by the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), the ISR is an annual event that is hosted all over the world, bringing new global insights on the latest in robotics applications and research. It has not been held in the U.S. since 2011. The ISR will be fully integrated into the Automate 2015 conference sessions, allowing all participants to learn about the newest developments in robotics, machine vision, imaging, motion control and other automation technologies covered at Automate. The ISR will also include a gala dinner for the Engelberger Robotics Awards, the industry’s highest honor.

“We are honored to be selected to host the 46th ISR in conjunction with Automate 2015,” said Jeff Burnstein, President of the A3. “ISR attendees will have the opportunity to see the latest robotics and automation technologies, learn about cutting edge research, and gain practical applications expertise.”

Speakers still have the opportunity to submit abstracts to speak at the ISR/Automate 2015 Conference. “We’re looking for experts in robotics, vision, motion control, assembly automation, sensors, test and measurement, systems integration and related areas  to help  educate our audience with practical information that addresses their specific challenges,” added Burnstein. Abstracts for non-commercial conference presentations can be submitted here . The deadline to submit an abstract is September 30, 2014.

The Automate 2015 trade show accompanying the conference was recently named one of the “Top 10 Manufacturing Shows” in the United States. New and returning exhibitors have already secured over 130% of exhibit floor space compared to the last show in 2013.
