The aerospace industry moves towards highly advanced automated and
intelligent systems. Aerospace production is a relatively slow,
low-volume, high-value process compared to other manufacturing. The
‘volume’ demand is not the product throughput, but rather the high
number of process steps required to complete the plane. The aerospace
companies are using robots and automated guided vehicles for
automating applications for the same reasons other industries, like
automotive, have been using them. The use of humanoid robots will be
a reality in the next future. In both aeronautical and space
applications humanoids robots will play a key role. In the field of
aeronautical applications, robotic manufacturing performs drilling,
sealing and dispensing, repetitive welding, deburring, and other
tasks like  inspection will predominate, e.g. in composite material
handling, advanced manufacturing collaborative work, hazardous
environment inspections in the aircrafts, etc. In the field of space
the emerging applications are satellite manipulation in space,
robotized experimentation in space crafts, planetary exploration,
etc. Both of them will use transverse technologies and crossover
fertilization based on intelligent HMI, data fusion, big data
management, ground segment software systems, and advanced dynamic
 From this workshop, we expect participating researchers and
professionals from aerospace industry to identify and address
important challenges, techniques, and benchmarks necessary for
complex task for humanoids in factory/space mission environment.
We want to discuss real experiences, open problems and important next
steps needed in order to make the presence of humanoids robots in this
industry a reality in future years.
Researchers will also have the opportunity to present their most
recent results and get feedback from fellow scientists and experts in
the field. The workshop is intended as an open platform for sharing
and discussing new ideas and open problems related with the
feasibility of humanoids technologies applied to industry and
aerospace related scenarios

This half-day workshop will consist of several invited presentations
from experts in the field as well as selected contributed short
presentations and an interactive poster session. All posters will be
introduced in an additional teaser session. Slides, abstracts and
posters will be made available on the workshop website.


Include, but are not limited to:

- Motion and action planning for assembly operations at workplace - 
Perception and processing algorithms in assembly or inspection
- Team coordination ( humans and humanoids workers)
- Skill and strategy learning - Integration 3D vision, data fusion and 
techniques for empowering
humanoids skills.
- 3D simulation of humanoid robots performing Aerospace related task
- Feasibility studies and prospection of industry trends
- Cases studies and running projects real experiences on the field

All contributed presentations are subject to a peer review process.
We solicit submissions of original, previously unpublished research
papers, optionally accompanied by a video. Papers should be up to 6
pages in length, formatted according to regular IEEE two-column
PDF-for IEEE conference layout.

Accepted papers and videos will be available online.

Submit details will be available soon.
