Nanorobotics Conference by Prof. Ari Requicha

14 April, 2010


This talk will address nanorobotics, an emerging area within nanotechnology. We will attempt to answer the
fundamental questions of Why?, What?, and How? for this new field. We will discuss automatic manipulation of
molecular-sized objects; sensors, actuators and other components and systems for nanorobots; and coordination and
programming of swarms of nanorobots. The image of the current state of nanorobotics that will emerge from this
survey is that of a highly interdisciplinary, vibrant, and rapidly evolving and growing field with remarkable future
potential, but also with major challenges ahead.

 Conference Program 




It's our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 9th Portuguese Conference on Automatic Control – CONTROLO’2010, to be held in Coimbra, from 8 to 10 September 2010.

This event is organized in cooperation with APCA and the School of Sciences and Engineering of the University of Coimbra (FCTUC). APCA is the Portuguese Association of Automatic Control, which is a national member organization of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC).

The event is also organized in close cooperation with the Mechanical Engineering Research Center of the University of Coimbra (CEMUC), which activity in automation and robotics is well known.


RoboParty 2009

The University of Minho and "SAR - Soluções de Automação e Robótica" will be organizing the 4th edition of RoboParty. As happened on the previous editions, the events main goal is to teach young people to build a robot in a funny way. There will be sport activities occurring also during the event. There are some news in this years edition.
