--- Workshop Description ---

“Robots? ... everywhere!”

ARSO adresses fundamental issues in coexistence of robots and humans
and its implications to economic and social systems. Topics range from
psychological and philosophical aspects over interaction and  
to technological systems and architectures. Manifold real-world  
areas such as rescue, assistance, care, education, or entertainment
require cognitive and social skills in order to provide safe, intuitive,
and efficient interaction and goal-directed proactive behavior. Along  
gradual development of those fundamental capabilities robots grow from
basic tools to unique entities which are not only able to assist but may
also take charge of situations arising facilitating human-robot  
task forces and social groups. Participants of ARSO will be world class
robotic researchers, investors, economists, and representatives of  
and government. The workshop is single track with discussions on
cutting edge science and technologies, business opportunities and the
social impact on societies. The workshop will be held in conjunction  
AUTOMATICA 2012, the 5th International Trade Fair on Automation and
Mechatronics, see www.automatica-munich.de.

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

- Service Robots
