1st Italian Conference on Robotics and Intelligent Machines ​

I-RIM is an Institute that gathers the Italian community in Robotics and Intelligent Machines, with the aim of nurturing and consolidating national competitiveness in this sector.
Promoted by scientists and academics, its scope is not limited to research but spans across industry and service applications.
The 1st Italian Conference on Robotics and Intelligent Machines is organized by I-RIM as part of its first 3-day event, including the official opening of the Institute. The conference aims at representing the status and future of a lively community, opening to stakeholders, disseminating current research results and trends, and showing the latest technologies.

Participants can contribute to the conference with two options:

  • oral presentations, based on extended abstracts
  • workshops on key topics and challenge uptakes

Extended abstracts

Prospective authors are invited to submit a 2-page extended abstract in English, presenting innovative results in all areas of robotics and intelligent machines. Accepted abstracts will be collected in the digital conference proceedings. Authors of accepted abstracts will be required to prepare a one-slide summary in Italian for the conference booklet. A collection of videos to accepted abstracts will be also set up and made available online.


Proposals are solicited for two-hour thematic workshops. The complete 2-page proposal should contain:

  • title, organizers with affiliations, and workshop format
  • speakers, with their affiliations, and intended audience
  • possible outcomes (e.g., publications, videos, further events)
