Australasian Conference on Robotics and Automation (ACRA) 2020

8-10 December 2020, 9am-5pm AEST

The annual Australasian Conference on Robotics and Automation (ACRA), established 21 years ago in 1999, has travelled all around Australasia. This year, it will be held in Brisbane, Queensland – and online, thanks to SARS-2 coronavirus pandemic.

The 2020 conference has been jointly organised by the Australian Robotics and Automation Association (ARAA) and the Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group at CSIRO’s Data61.

The conference proceedings will be live-streamed from CSIRO’s Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT), located in the emerging robotics hub of Brisbane, capital of Queensland, Australia.

It will take place over three days from 8-10 December from 9am-5pm daily, Brisbane time, and will feature experts in the field discussing a range of topical issues.
