24th CISM-IFToMM SYMPOSIUM on Robot Design, Dynamics and Control (RoManSy 2022)

Meetings and events

The First CISM-IFToMM Symposium on Theory and Practice of Robots and Manipulators was held on Sept. 5-8, 1973, in Udine, Italy, not long after IFToMM had been founded in 1969. The first ROMANSY, or Ro.Man.Sy., as the Symposium used to be referred to, marks the beginning of a long-lasting partnership between two international institutions, CISM, the Centre International des Sciences Mécaniques and IFToMM, the International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science.

As the 24th Symposium returns to Udine celebrating its 50 years edition, RoManSy 2022 will continue to preserve this tradition, by encouraging papers that are of a broad interest to the participants and by providing an environment and setting for meaningful technical and personal interactions among the delegates. In particular, the conference solicits papers providing a vision of the evolution of the robotics disciplines and signaling new directions in which these disciplines are foreseen to develop.

Paper topics include, but are not limited to:
1. novel robot design and robot modules/components;
2. personal, service, medical, space and rescue robots;
3. cooperative and networked robotics;
4. challenges in control, modeling, kinematical and dynamical analysis of robotic systems;
5. innovations in sensor systems for robots and perception;
6. biomechanics, humanoid robots, biorobots;
7. educational issues.
