The Austrian Robotics Workshop and OAGM Workshop will take place from May 9-10, 2019 in Steyr. The workshops are organized by two independent groups. 

  • OAGM addresses image processing, and computer vision
  • ARW (Austrian Robotics Workshop) addresses robots and automation, human-machine collaboration.

The Austrian Robotics Workshop aims to bring together researchers, experts and practitioners working on various robotics topics to discuss current developments and challenges in robotics and its applications. The new edition in Steyr is primarily aimed at robotics competence in the production area. Companies are invited to present their activities. The conference will be complemented by the latest developments, which will be shown in an exhibition.

The OAGM workshop provides a platform for presentation and discussion of research progress as well as current projects with the OAGM/AAPR community.

In addition, the COMARO 2019: Cognitive Manufacturing and Robotics will take place in parallel. It aims to facilitate synergies between research and industry, to highlight the state of the art and beyond state of the art of cognitive systems with emphasis on robotics and computer vision in manufacturing environments and visualize best practice examples.
