21st Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems Conference 

Nottingham, 22 - 24 July 2020 (Postponed)

TAROS final logo - 220


Following the advice from the UK Government regarding Covid-19, TAROS 2020 Conference has been postponed. We are working with the venue and speakers to work out a new date, and will provide an update once this has been confirmed. 



TAROS is the longest running UK-hosted international conference on Robotics and Autonomous Systems, which is aimed at the presentation and discussion of the latest results and methods in autonomous robotics research and applications. It provides a platform for robotics researchers with a wide range of interests from the UK, Europe and worldwide.

TAROS 2020 will be hosted by Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre for Manufacturing and On-wing Technology at the University of Nottingham, 22nd -24th July, 2020.

TAROS offers a friendly environment for robotics researchers and industry to take stock and plan future progress. It welcomes senior researchers and research students alike, and specifically provides opportunities for research students and young research scientists to present their work to the scientific community.

TAROS 2020 invites both full papers and extended abstracts. All contributions will be refereed. Full papers are invited from researchers at any stage in their career but should present significant findings and advances in robotics research; more preliminary work would be better suited to extended abstract submission. Full papers will be accepted for either oral presentation (single track) or poster presentation. Extended abstracts will be accepted for poster presentation only.
