Advances in Robotics (AIR) is a series of biennial conference organized by the Robotics Society of India. The conference aims to create a forum to present and exchange new ideas by researchers and developers from India and abroad working in the fields of robotics and its applications. The conference would have plenary talks, oral and poster presentations, and special industry oriented sessions.

AIR 2017, will be held at IIT Delhi, New Delhi, during June 28-July 2, 2017. The previous two editions of AIR’s were held at R&DE, DRDO Pune (AIR 2013) and BITS Pilani Goa Campus, Goa (AIR 2015).

Contributed Papers

The organizers of the conference invite unpublished research work in the various fields of Robotics. The authors have to follow ACM format of double column, with a maximum papge limit of 6. The submitted papers will undergo to double blind peer-review process and the accepted papers, have to submit a camera-ready version after incorporating reviewers comments. The accepted and presented papers will be published as an ACM-ICPS series.

Plenary Talks/Keynote Lectures:

Some of the plenary talks in the previous AIR’s were given by Prof. Seth Hutchinson, Prof. Roland Seigwart and Prof. Steven LaValle.

 Workshop and Tutorials

A full day workshop and/or tutorials will be held during the conference. The topic(s) of the workshop will be related to Robotics and its applications. More details here.

Doctoral Symposium

A symposium will be held for the PhD students working in all areas relevant to robotics. It would provide an opportunity to showcase their ongoing research work and interact with experts in the field. More details here.
