Rob|Arch has been initiated by the Association for Robots in Architecture as a new conference series on the use of robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design, closely linking industry with cutting-edge research institutions.
In addition to the previously announced seven workshops, hosted by TU Delft, University of Michigan, University of Stuttgart, TU Graz, ETH Zurich, TU Vienna, Hal, and the Association for Robots in Architecture at four locations throughout Europe, SciArc is joining the Rob|Arch 2012 conference and will be offering another robot workshop. Staeubli is providing three industrial robots for the workshop, which is going to take place alongside three other robot workshops at TU Vienna's Arsenal location.
The registration for the Rob|Arch 2012 conference is now open at registration.robarch2012.org
Thanks to the generous support of our main sponsor KUKA, our sponsors ABB, Schunk, as well as our workshop sponsors Staeubli, Zeman, SuperTex and Euchner, we can offer an reduced early-registration fee of 50% for professionals and even 70% for students.
499€ - early Regular registration: One robot workshop (to be selected in the registration form), conference admission, conference dinner, and printed Springer proceedings.
299€ - early Student registration: One robot workshop (to be selected in the registration form), conference admission and conference dinner. Printed Springer proceedings are available at a reduced price.
The early registration prices are valid until October 1st, workshop spaces are limited to allow every participant plenty of time with the robots. At the moment, conference-only registration is not available; we encourage all participants of the conference to attend a robot workshop.
Due to the much higher than expected amount of submitted abstracts, the full paper submission will use the well-established OpenConf system to facilitate the review process. Full papers, using the provided template at www.robarch2012.org/submission, can be submitted until the 16th of July. Everyone is eligible to submit papers, though authors who previously submitted abstracts do have the advantage of having received valuable feedback from the reviewers.
