CfP 19th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Robotics and Its Social Impacts (ARSO 2023)

Conference on Advanced Robotics and Its Social Impacts (ARSO 2023) Dear colleagues, We are pleased to announce the 19th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Robotics and Its Social Impacts (ARSO 2023) that will take place in Berlin, Germany, June 5th-7th 2023, in conjunction with ICRA’23. Contributions for papers and organized sessions are now open (accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and on IEEE Xplore).

Summary Advanced robots are expected to enter in promising applications in our future society and bring substantial impacts. The increasing implementation of AI-based components even broadens their fields of application. To ensure that these impacts are positively reflected, today, we need to extend views not only on technical aspects but also on social challenges that we might face, which include safety, regulation, ethics, human factors, and philosophy.
