  • Prof. Bruno Siciliano from the PRISMA Lab (University of Naples), presents the video lecture titled Aerial Manipulation, the “flying eye and hand” research and application area his team at PRISMA has been researching for the last 7 years. More specifically, Prof. Siciliano focuses on his AIRobots, ARCAS and SHERPA projects funded by the European Union. We invite you to watch Prof. Siciliano’s presentation of his innovative robotic projects within the aerial manipulation field in its entirety.

  • Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology and Nanobiomedicine journals will be participating in this year’s EuroNanoForum. The event takes place in Riga (Latvia), June 10 -12, and is the most significant European networking conference for nanotechnology innovations, their applications and commercialisation. Both journals are to be exhibited by the team at booth #51 during the conference. To find out more about the event and to register, click here.

  • We have published our newest IJARS Video Series lecture titled "Human-Robot Emotional and Musical Interactions", featuring Prof. Massimiliano Zecca, Loughborough University, UK. In this video lecture Prof. Zecca touches upon 3 main topics: emotional robotics, musical robotics and wearable bionistrumentation. He explores issues such as how people feel about interacting with a robot, how the robots interact within groups, how can they “sense” what humans feel. We invite you to watch his lecture here.

  • InTech Books Highlights series’ fourth newsletter is all about our openly accessible books. In the past 10 years and up to the beginning of 2015, we published 2,420 books covering specific areas within Science, Technology and Medicine. Our book chapters have been downloaded +59 million times up to this date and each week about 170,000 users visit InTech's reading platform and searches for information and the latest developments in their areas of studies. Here is a more detailed overview of the books we published up until this year.

  • Nanobiomedicine’s Editorial Board member Ali Khademhosseini (Harvard Medical School, USA), is one of the organisers and speakers at the "3rd Annual Workshop on Nanotechnologies for Medicine: Emerging Frontiers and Applications", hosted by the Biomaterials Innovation Research Center, Wyss Institute, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The workshop will take place on July 27-31 in Cambridge (USA). For more information or to register, click here.

  • IJARS’s latest video featuring Dr. Francesco Nori has been included in O’Reilly’s Radar IoT Newsletter. O’Reilly’s Radar is an online website that features insight, analysis and research about emerging technologies. To browse through their articles or sign up to the newsletter and find out about the latest big technology developments, click here. We invite you to watch Dr. Nori’s video lecture here “Complete Force Control in Under-Actuated but Constrained Mechanical Systems”.

  • With the aim to help particular regions open to international scientific communities and exchange knowledge on a global basis, InTech has been collaborating, among other, with universities, authors and editors from the GCC region (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates), Mexico and China. Our Regional Research Spotlight series is an overview of activities initiated with these countries in the past years as well as upcoming projects. The first overview published focuses on Mexico. To find out more about our collaborations with Mexico up to date, activities undertaken and future events, click here.

  • Nanobiomedicine's (NBM) Editorial Board member Ali Khademhosseini (Harvard Medical School, USA) announced as a keynote speaker at SELECTBIO’s "Organ-on-a-Chip and 3D-Printing in the Life Sciences Congress", to be held on July 8-9 in Boston, USA. The event comprises of two tracks; the first one will focus on cells that are being assembled using microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip technologies in a functionally-relevant manner. The second track will highlight technologies and applications of biofabrication and 3D-bioprinting in the Life Sciences. To register and for more information, click here.

  • Our third newsletter from the InTech Books Highlights series focuses on the role of our editors. InTech book editors are at the core of the book publishing process and bring to the table their expertise, scientific background and professional experience in overseeing all editorial steps. To find out more about editor collaborations in numbers and by subject throughout the past ten years, their geographic and research background, to read interviews with our editors on the pros of the job and to get an idea of how we work with our editors, click here.

  • The latest IJARS Video Series lecture is presented by Dr. Francesco Nori from the Italian Institute of Technology. Dr. Nori has been one of the key contributors to the development of the iCub robot and in his video presentation titled Complete Force Control in Under-Actuated but Constrained Mechanical Systems, he focuses on the latest designs and formulas to advance the dynamics system of a robot - forces that interact and make the system move. The lecture includes a video of the most recent implementation of the whole-body motion control on the iCub. Click here to watch the video.

  • PORTICO

    We are pleased to announce that InTech will be preserving its e-journals with Portico, ensuring that their content will be secure and available into the future. Since 2004, InTech has collaborated with more than 87,000 authors comprised in more than 2,400 publications. InTech currently publishes six peer reviewed journals spanning robotics, nanotechnology, nanobiomedicine, to engineering business management. The aim is to provide free online access to research, thus helping academics reach diverse new audiences around the world. InTech’s mission is to give all researchers equal opportunity to share ideas and develop their careers, and for their work to have impact among scientific communities. More

  • Following the announcement of our IJARS Women in Robotics ambassadors - Dr. Amy Loufti and Dr. Nina Robson - and their personal stories, we finally reveal our last female ambassador, Dr. M. Bernardine Dias (Carnegie Mellon University, USA). Dr. Dias has kindly agreed to support our initiative and has joined us in promoting women professionals in robotics. Here is her story.

  • We are pleased to announce that the International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems has published a Special Issue titled Telerobotics And Systems Engineering For Scientific Facilities, now available online to be read and downloaded for free. The Special Issue contains 14 peer-reviewed papers produced by researchers participating to the PURESAFE conference, funded by Marie Curie Actions. The research papers published in the Special Issue focus on promoting telerobotic remote handling technologies integrated with system engineering and are related to specific topics concerning the application of robots in scientific facilities.
