After a long period, in which the research focused mainly on industrial robotics, nowadays scientists aim to build machines able to act autonomously in unstructured domains, and to interface friendly with humans, while performing intelligently their assigned tasks. Such Intelligent Autonomous Systems are now being intensively developed, and are ready to be applied to every field, from social life to modern enterprises. We believe the following years will be increasingly characterized by their extensive use. This is changing dramatically the whole scenario of human society.
The aim of IAS-6 has been to develop a technical program with the highest quality of scientific and technical contents, while offering the participants the maximum possibility of interaction in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas and laboratory experience.
