About Us

The RANE 2019: International Conference on Robotics, Automation and Non-destructive Evaluation is the flagship conference in the field of robotics and an international event for researchers, companies and end-users. It will be held in Chennai, during August 29-30, 2019. The conference venue is the Andromeda Lecture Theatre, Hindustan Institute of Technology & Science, Chennai.

The conference will include plenary and short keynote presentations, contributed papers sessions in a mixed oral/interactive format, workshops and tutorials, numerous robotic challenges, exhibition with live demos, and panel discussion, as well as entrepreneurship and educational activities.

This year theme of the conference is “Technology for Society” due to the fact that technology will change our lives in the near future by creating new human-robot relationships which will lead to a better society.

This year's theme is focusing on advanced technological innovations (human-robot interaction, humanoids, social robots, autonomous systems, intelligent perception), as well as on societal aspects (legal issues, regulations, robotics ethics, human–robot co-existence, employment).

RANE 2019 aims to bring together leading academic scientists, industrialists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Robotics, Automation Systems, Non-Destructive Evaluation for a better society.
