CCAS Conference 24-25 November 2021

CCAS conference "Frontiers in Autonomous Systems"

24-25 November 2021, 8.00-17:30, OTICON Salen, DTU Lyngby Campus

Welcome to the first edition of the DTU conference “Frontiers in Autonomous Systems” (FAS 2021), organized and hosted by the DTU Centre for Collaborative Autonomous Systems (CCAS) and with the financial support of Odense Robotics.

We invite all interested stakeholders from private enterprises and public institutions to join us on November 24-25 2021 to discuss the state of development of autonomous systems’ technologies across different industrial domains, to identify challenges and opportunities towards the actualization of the autonomous systems’ agenda in the Danish and European societies, to network and establish new collaborations.

The conference program will offer plenary talks by leading international scientists, keynotes from academia and industry, short presentations by early stage researchers, technological demos in the DTU Autonomous Systems Test Arena, and the opportunity to take a ride in the LINC Autonomous Bus.

We have selected four focus areas for this first edition - Autonomous Robots and Drones; Ethics and Law for AI-driven Systems; Interaction between Humans and Intelligent Machines; Intelligent Energy Systems – and the plenary talks will provide bold perspectives on these topics. Keynote speakers from industry and academia will address several topics covering smart urban mobility, autonomous waterborne transport, autonomous drones for inspection, playware technology for rehabilitation, and much more.

We look forward to welcoming you here at DTU and shaping together the future of autonomous systems in Denmark!
