Deadline extended: DFKI symposium in the course of the "Stardust Final Conference on Asteroids and Space Debris" – Call for Papers

How can robotic technologies contribute to the exploration of asteroids and to reduce and eliminate space debris? This question will be examined by a one-day symposium in the course of the STARDUST FINAL CONFERENCE ON ASTEROIDS AND SPACE DEBRIS – the final conference of the international training network Stardust (ITN Stardust) – from October 31st to November 4th 2016 in the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, Netherlands. The DFKI Robotics Innovation Center organizes the symposium entitled "Space Robotics for Asteroid Exploration and Debris Mitigation/Remediation" on November 2nd, from 10am to 3pm. The program of the event includes a keynote talk by Gianfranco Visentin (European Space Agency) on "Robotics for proximity and contact operations in negligible gravity: a system perspective".

The symposium will cover a range of topics, including, but not limited to:

    • In orbit robotic path planning and control
    • Operational modes of robots in microgravity
    • Landing and locomotion in microgravity
    • Methods and hardware for robotic capture of non-cooperative targets
    • Computer vision for pose estimation and inspection
    • Interaction of the robotic control with the GNC of the spacecraft
    • Hardware-in-the-loop facilities for testing space robotics
    • Design of distributed hardware and software for heterogeneous robotic systems, robot operating systems and reconfigurable robot teams
    • Tele-operation, tele-presence and latency handling in space robotics
    • Artificial intelligence, learning and autonomy concepts for space robotics

    Help us to shape the symposium by sending in your paper by September, 5th 2016.
    Accepted papers will be included in a book of proceedings to be published after the conference.

    About ITN Stardust

    The International Training Network Stardust (Stardust ITN) is a joint project, which is funded within the Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Union since 2013. Alongside the DFKI Robotics Innovation Center numerous international partners are involved, including the University of Strathclyde (UK) as coordinator.

    Stardust is a research and training network aimed at the development of innovative and effective solutions for a previously unsolved problem in space research: The danger of space debris and asteroids. As the network emphasis on the training of young researchers who develop technologies for monitoring, manipulation and disposal of space debris and asteroids in the future, the project breaks new ground in international space research.
