Workshop, 7th March, 13:30
Which cognitive capabilities do robots need? In the
field of cognitive robotics, this workshop seeks to improve the
mutual understanding of needs in research and
The workshop is a start to bringing closer together the robotics
and cognitive systems communities - both academia and industry.
This is one of the actions taken by the newly starting euCogIII
networking action. The objective is to make both communities more
aware of their respective strengths and the possibilities to
provide better and better service to the industry.
As a first step, the communities need to begin understanding
each other's language and the possibilities provided. To this end
we plan to invite proponents of both sides to freely speak about
demand and options. Additionally, we invite open proposals to add
to the discussion with a short statement.

The results of the discussion will be actively used by the
euCogIII board for planning further awareness and synergy
activities on creating links between industry and academia.
Furthermore, there will be a similar event during one of the
euCogIII meetings specifically inviting the robotics
There will be a workshop webpage as part of the euCognition
webpages similar to previous events such as
The European Robotics Forum, organized by the European
robotic networks EURON, EUROP, the euRobotics Coordination Action
and hosted by The Danish Technological Institute, is in the
field of robotics the meeting point for engineers, scientists and
business people from all over Europe. The event will take
place from 5-7 March 2012 in Odense, Denmark.
More than 300 robotics researchers from industry and academia,
as well as entrepreneurs and public investors, are expected to
discuss the latest developments, research challenges and business
opportunities for European robotics.
This year's theme of the European Robotics Forum is "European
Robotics towards new horizons".
