About ARSO 2014
The 2014 IEEE International Workshop on Advanced Robotics and its Social
Impacts (ARSO2014) will be held on September 11-13, 2014 in Evanston,
Illinois, USA. ARSO is a single track workshop, aiming to provide
world-class researchers, engineers, investors, economists, and
representatives of industry and government with a forum to discuss
cutting-edge robotics technologies, business opportunities, and other
impacts on human society. Topics range from psychological and philosophical
aspects over interaction and communication to technological systems and
architectures. Applications of robots are highly encouraged, including, but
not limited to, manufacturing, healthcare, service and assistance, rescue,
entertainment, and education. The workshop will be held in conjunction with

- IMTS 2014 (International Manufacturing Technology Show 2014) and
- IROS 2014 (International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems),

both of which will take place in downtown Chicago, about one hour away from
Evanston by subway or half an hour by car.
