> FET11 Call for Robotics-related sessions Sessions and Exhibitions
> DEADLINE: January 29.
> MORE INFO: www.fet11.eu
> The European Future Technologies (FET) Conference and Exhibition aims to be the European forum for facilitating international cross-disciplinary dialogue and discussion on visions and challenges for frontier research in future and emerging information technologies.
> CALL FOR SESSIONS: The fet11 conference programme will feature some 30 scientific sessions. Proposals for sessions should address a topic that is embryonic, multidisciplinary, transformative or foundational. Sessions should aim to present the state-of-the-art, develop broad visions and new concepts and identify resulting challenges for frontier research. Where appropriate, the session design should feature a broad range of views, enabling different disciplines to come together and engage in a dialogue that creates a wider context.
> Accepted sessions will get a slot of 90 minutes in the conference programme. The structure and format of the session is free. Highly interactive and unconventional session designs are welcome. When the session has been accepted, the person responsible for it will organise the session in close collaboration with the conference organising committee.
> Abstracts for session proposals are limited to 500 words. They should clearly state the scientific and technological challenge addressed, and discuss the expected future impact on science and technology. They should also specify the proposed speakers, target audience, and format of the session. Emphasis should be given to those aspects of the session design which are interactive.
> CALL FOR EXHIBIT PROPOSALS: The fet11 Exhibition intends to demonstrate the potential, the diversity and the importance of foundational long term research in future ICT. It aims to present a mix of impressive achievements as well as early stage results, ideas and prototypes. It should illustrate the wide variety of disciplines, technologies and domains involved in future and emerging information technologies to a target audience that brings together a broad set of scientific communities, key policy makers as well as industrial and societal stakeholders on an international basis.
> This call is open to any organisation involved in long term research in future and emerging information technologies. This includes universities, research institutes, non-profit organisations, public authorities and private companies, including small and medium sized high-tech enterprises.
> The exhibition will be a key element of the conference and will be set up for the three days of the conference.
> This call concerns proposals that can demonstrate the transformative potential of foundational research. They may either exhibit 'exploratory research in progress' based on preliminary results and ideas or final research achievements.
