LARSyS 2021 Annual Meeting is coming soon 28-06-2021


The 2021 LARSyS annual meeting will take place on July 14th and 19th, in a hybrid format. This event intends to engage LARSyS researchers in interdisciplinary debates about current and future challenges in robotics and engineering systems research and to foster cooperation within the Associated Laboratory. As in previous years, this meeting will also include panel discussions and presentations with external guests to foster the identification and dissemination of significant research and funding initiatives in Portugal and Europe.

The event is structured into two days of activities. On July 14th all activities will take place on Zoom and the program will focus on discussions concerning the LARSyS Thematic Lines, aiming to identify new challenges and opportunities and review recent highlights.

The second part of the program, on July 19th, is organized as a single-track event with presentations, student pitches, and discussions with external guests and stakeholders. António Costa e Silva (Responsible for the Recovery and Resilience Plan), Joana Mendonça (President of ANI) and Ana Neves (Coordinator of PERIN) are confirmed speakers. On this day, activities will be held in-person at IST Congress Center with video broadcast.

LARSyS is an Associated Laboratory that brings together more than 400 researchers from four R&D units: ISR-Lisboa, IN+, ITI, and MARETEC.
