Date and location: 24-27 June 2024, Luxembourg

The International Conference on Space Robotics (iSpaRo) is a new conference aiming to provide a framework for scientists and industry experts to engage in fruitful discussions and share their insights on the emerging topic of Space Robotics. In the last decade, the advances in in-orbit servicing and satellite operations, the renewed interest in the Moon, recent discoveries in the exploration of Mars and Near-Earth Asteroids (NEAs), together with the emergence of new ventures aimed at the prospection, extraction, and utilization of space resources have sparked a new wave of research and commercial opportunities. Traditional and new space companies are pushing the limits of in-space activities with robotics as the disruptive technology and enabler of the next advances in this new space era. 

iSpaRo seeks to fill the gap between established robotics conferences and non-per-reviewed aerospace conferences by allowing the research community and industry professionals to engage in rigorous discussions and share their latest findings in the field. The conference aims to push the boundaries of the field of Space Robotics by exploring new research and development opportunities. The conference will feature speakers from both industry and academia, providing attendees with valuable insights and perspectives on the latest advancements in the field. The iSpaRo conference also aims to create a network of researchers and industry professionals on this topic, including the new generations, fostering future collaborations and innovations. 

This conference is “under discussions to be” technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (IEEE Technical Committee on Space Robotics), guaranteeing an exhaustive scientific peer-review process.
This conference is supported by EuRobotics.
