1st Italian Conference on Robotics and Intelligent Machines


It is with great pleasure that I thank, on behalf of the entire organization, all the participants of the First Italian Conference on Robotics and Intelligent Machines (I-RIM Conference 2019).

The conference was one of the many activities of the Three Days I-RIM 3D which took place in Rome from 18 to 20 October 2019, the launching event of the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Machines. His goal was to best represent the richness and multidisciplinary nature of national research in the field of robotics and intelligent machines and to make product and application developers aware of the possibilities offered by the most recent results.

The three Program Chair, Barbara Caputo (Polytechnic University of Turin and Italian Institute of Technology), Cecilia Laschi (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa) and Domenico Prattichizzo (University of Siena), assisted by the 37 members of the Interdisciplinary Training Program Committee, they selected the contributions and prepared an intense program which developed throughout the whole day on Saturday 19 and the morning of Sunday 20 October, enriched also by plenary speeches.
There were 50 oral presentations of the works organized in 10 sessions, each of 5 interventions (“pitch” of 5 minutes) with at the end 5 minutes of collective Q&A. These works were also discussed in the interactive sessions, along with 70 other works presented only as posters. The 4 long-lasting interactive sessions (2 hours or more) favored a direct exchange of information.

In addition to oral presentations and posters, the program also offered 16 thematic workshops in 4 parallel sessions. The proposals presented by the organizers were coordinated by the three Workshop Chairs, Massimo Ippolito (Comau), Barbara Mazzolai (Italian Institute of Technology) and Luigi Villani (University of Naples Federico II). The two awards for the best presentations completed the ceremony on Sunday 20 October, before the final I-RIM Assembly of Members.

The material of the I-RIM 2019 Conference gathers 120 Extended Abstracts of the works, some accompanied by videos (altogether 29), 50 video pitches of the oral presentations and a Digest, in which the highlights of each work are summarized in a slide. The materials are published on the conference website, while the videos are featured in two playlists on the I-RIM video channel.
I thank all the authors for their excellent contributions, the Chairs and the Program Committee for their availability and competence, all the members of the organization, even those who have worked behind the scenes, for the energy and enthusiasm to guarantee the success of this event.
