2022 May 23 – 27
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

The 39th International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2022 will take place at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, from 2022 May 23 – 27.

As a flagship conference of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, ICRA will bring together world researchers and companies to share ideas and advances in the field. Read More.

The ICRA 2022 Exhibition Hall will feature a Start-up Alley and Small Business Zone which will allow these companies to exhibit at the congress with a smaller investment.

Start-up companies should complete the Start-up Alley Application.

Small businesses (those with less than 25 employees) should complete the Exhibit Application.

The ICRA 2019 Conference Exhibit will feature a Start-up and Small Business Zone which will allow these companies to exhibit at the congress with a smaller investment.

Companies that incorporated within the last 24 months of the conference dates (must show certificate of incorporation) and existing companies with less than 25 employees qualify in this category.

Start-up Forum

In a collaboration with IEEE RAS Industry Advisory Board (IAB) and incubators such as Silicon Valley Robotics, Mass Robotics, Pennovation, and Pittsburgh Robotics Network a set of companies are being invited to present their business plan and how they are going to market. The objectives are two-fold: present examples of early-stage start-ups, have them discuss ideas with venture capitalists and the broader audience. The final set of companies to be presented during this forum is still under discussion.
