IJARS publishes Special Issue with authors participating to the PURESAFE conference funded by Marie Curie Actions

January 20, 2015

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, specifically the Seventh Framework Programme led by Finland’s Tampere University of Technology (TUT), in partnership with Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) in Spain, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland, the Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research/Facility for Ion and Antiproton Research (GSI) in Germany, Oxford Technologies Ltd (OTL) in the UK and SenseTrix Ltd and bgator Ltd Finland.

Telerobotics And Systems Engineering For Scientific Facilities focuses on promoting telerobotic remote handling technologies integrated with system engineering. The published papers are related to specific topics concerning the application of robots in scientific facilities and how to integrate and schedule them in the lifecycle of scientific facilities, specifically as it relates to CERN and GSI.

The PURESAFE conference (“Preventing hUman intervention for incrREased SAfety in inFrastructures Emitting ionizing radiation”), currently taking place at CERN in Geneva (Switzerland), will present to the systems engineering and telerobotics communities the outcomes of 15 research projects in the field, also offering other young researchers in these fields the possibility to present the outcomes of their on-going research work.
