The 2022 EIROforum Topical Workshop on Robotics & Remote Operation organised by the Instrumentation Working Group, will be held from 1st-3rd June 2022. The workshop will be co-hosted by the ESRF & ILL, but due to the current situation, will be held as an online event.

Robotic systems are  becoming essential in modern research facilities. Indeed, whether for reasons of distance, difficult environment, precision or speed, the automation of experiments would not be made possible without such systems.

The deployment of remote access to instruements and experiments has recently taken on another dimension with the COVID-19 pendemic, thus providind new opportunitis as well as giving more working flexibility.

This workshop on robotics and remote operation will bring together experts from leading European research centers in the interdisciplinary fields of computer science and engineering, to discuss the current state and future applications in the fields of :

  • Instruments automation, robotics and mechatronics
  • Remote handling robots, precision, high reproducibility and speed
  • Radio protection, maintenance and robotics
  • Telerobotics and orbitral robotics
  • Remote control experiments platforms
