Khalifa University announced a number of oral presentations are shortlisted by the organizing committee for the hybrid 15th edition of the IEEE International Symposium on Robotic and Sensors Environments (ROSE).


Khalifa University is the technical co-sponsor of IEEE ROSE 2022 that will be held from 14-15 November 2022. The ROSE 2022 Symposium will also coincide with the Khalifa University-IEEE Robotics and Automation Society’s (KU-IEEE RAS) exhibition and conference, which will be organized under the theme of ‘Robotics and Industrial Automation’. A set of workshops on Marine Robotics Surveillance, Women in Engineering, and AI and The Future Of Engineering Education will be part of the KU-IEEE RAS event.


Dr. Arif Sultan Al Hammadi, Executive Vice-President, Khalifa University, said: “We are delighted to co-sponsor IEEE ROSE 2022 and bring the 15th edition to Abu Dhabi and the UAE to highlight the evolving technologies in robotics and industrial automation and their importance in a digital world. The exhibition and conference organized simultaneously by KU-IEEE RAS is another great opportunity for the industry to showcase specialized robots and technical capabilities to participants, visitors, guests, and the general audience.”


The focus of the ROSE 2022 Symposium series is on sensing systems and technologies for robotics and industrial automation, as well as their impact on autonomous robotics and intelligent systems development and applications. Paper and poster presentations will focus on all aspects of Sensing Systems and Technologies for Robotics and Industrial Automation, Human-Robot Cooperation, Multimodal Sensing, and Perception Technologies.


Among the two keynotes, Dr. Sami Haddadin, Professor and Chair of Robotics and Systems Intelligence, Technical University of Munich (TUM), and the founding and executive director of the Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI), will deliver an address titled ‘Tactile Robots: Building the Machine and Learning the Self’. The second keynote titled ‘Learning Autonomous Vision-based Flight’ will  be offered by Dr. Davide Scaramuzza, founder and director of the Robotics and Perception Group, and Professor of Robotics and Perception, at both departments of Informatics (University of Zurich) and Neuroinformatics (University of Zurich and ETH Zurich).


At the same time, a sizable number of local and regional industrial and academic partners have already registered for participation in the KU-IEEE RAS exhibition and conference. The event will be a platform for networking, sharing knowledge and creating opportunities for future collaboration in research, development and potential startups.
