  • IAS 2017

    Location: Shanghai, China

    November 7, 2017 - November 11, 2017

    The IAS Industrial Automation Show is an international trade fair for industrial automation technology, which takes place once a year in Shanghai. Since its inception, the event has become the industry barometer of China's automation market. Exhibitors are presenting, beside industrial automation, electrical systems, robotics and IT solutions, primarily in the fields of auto, papermaking, electricity power, rail transport, machine tool, new energy, building materials, metallurgy and mining, where performance enhancement is important and therefore offers the largest potential for automation. A focus that is gaining more and more importance is the issue robotics. Intelligent robots from national and international market leaders conquer the exhibition platform and provide technological boom and innovations in the robotics industry. The IAS Industrial Automation Show will be held in conjunction with the ES Energy Show and MWCS Metalworking and CNC Machine Tool Show. Together, the fairs generate a professional audience of more than 120,000 visitors and establish them as an important event in the exhibition landscape of China. International exhibitors use these fairs primarily to get access to the Chinese and Asian markets and to open up new markets.

  • AI-HRI 2017

    Location: Arlington, VA, USA

    November 9, 2017 - November 11, 2017

    AI-HRI (The AAAI Fall Symposium on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Human-Robot Interaction (HRI)) seeks to bring together the subset of the HRI community focused on the application of AI solutions to HRI problems. Building on the success of the three previous years’ symposia, the central purpose of this year’s symposium is to address the statements “HRI is an AI problem” and “AI is an HRI problem”. The symposium will include current research talks and discussions both to share work in this intersectional area and provide guidance for how to best frame AI-centric HRI work within AI venues. It will also include invited speaker panels to give different perspectives on AI-for-HRI. AI-HRI encourages industry members to submit:


    FULL PAPERS: 6-8 pages
    May describe the implementation of AI systems in commercial HRI products.

    SHORT PAPERS: 3-4 pages
    May describe unrealized computational advances that would facilitate the development, enhancement, or deployment of HRI technologies.

    TOOL PAPERS: 1-2 pages
    May describe novel software, hardware, or datasets of interest to the AI-HRI community. Presented datasets should be made available at the symposium.
