ROSE 2012 Home


The focus of the ROSE conference 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.

Papers are solicited on all aspects of sensing systems and technologies for robotics and industrial automation, human-robot cooperation, multimodal sensing, and perception technologies. These include, but are not limited to: sensor controlled systems, collaborative manufacturing, inspection and quality control, human and robot interaction, cognitive robotics, tele-operation, robot manipulation, mobile robotics, rescue robots, swarm robotics, and also on robot sensors and vision, intelligent sensing, machine vision and image processing, 3D sensing and modeling, sensor fusion, new sensor technologies, and distributed sensing for automated security systems.

ROSE 2012 will take place at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany, on 16-18 November 2012. Magdeburg is the capital city of the federal state Saxony-Anhalt in Germany. It is strategically located along the Elbe River and has witnessed more than 1200 years of a very rich history, with Emperor Otto I who lived in Magdeburg for most of his reign. The city is the site of two universities as well as a strong industrial hub. Magdeburg is easily accessible by car or train, and well connected to three major airports in Germany (Leipzig, Berlin, and Hannover). The Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg is one of the youngest universities in Germany and counts about 13 000 students in nine faculties.

The 2012 edition of the IEEE International Symposium on RObotic and Sensors Environments is sponsored by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society. It is organized in collaboration with TC-15 Virtual Systems Measurements, TC-22 Intelligent Measurement Systems, TC-27 Human-Computer Interface and Interaction, TC-28 Instrumentation for Robotics and Automation, and TC-30 Security and Contraband Detection.
