Automation know-how in 23 instalments

Would you like to listen to the world’s leading robotics experts or experience hands-on presentations of current robot models? Or discuss the outlook of future industrial production or converse with AI specialists?

Whatever you may be looking for – above and beyond the world’s most comprehensive overview of automation technology components and systems – you’ll find it at Automatica, which will be held in Munich from June 21 to 24, and has a supporting programme that will live up to visitor expectations.

This year’s supporting programme of 23 events covers all of the hot topics of automation and robotics, built around presentations, special shows, panel discussions, conferences and keynotes.

The munich_i Hightech Summit is the highlight of the programme and will be held on 22 June. The event has a focus on robotics and artificial intelligence: under the theme of ‘intelligence empowering tomorrow’, four sessions with four experts each will shed light on the central aspects of interaction between human and artificial intelligence, and responsible technological change. The topics range from warehouse automation and deep learning approaches to automated AI-supported driving and ‘soft robotics’.

At the munich_i special show AI.Society in Hall B4.319, things are much more hands-on and physical. Here, visitors can experience prototypes up close and see exciting lighthouse projects from the four pivotal fields of work, healthcare, mobility, and environment that will shape the future. The i_space forum, which is a part of AI.Society, looks beyond technical feasibility aspects of robotics and automation. This is where leading experts discuss future social developments.

Then there are the interactive Vision Expert Huddles, with short keynotes on the latest technologies and trends in machine vision invite trade fair visitors to engage with experts on site. And there is the Automatica Forum with its mix of keynotes, panel discussions, and exhibitor contributions—are equally numerous and sophisticated.

Further, leading associations and federations of industrial automation traditionally use the trade fair to host their own events, thus expanding the range of information available at Automatica. Highlights include the International Symposium on Robotics, the world’s leading robotics conference under the auspices of the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), and the presentation of three 2022 Joseph F. Engelberger Awards that are considered the most prestigious industry awards worldwide. As yet another example of how closely the experts at the world’s leading trade fair are connected, one of this year’s award winners, Melonee Wise of Zebra Technologies, will also speak at the munich_i Hightech Summit.

The supporting program is on a world-class level and will provide all visitors – from ‘beginners’ to industry experts and visionaries—with exciting perspectives and insights.
