The 7th Annual IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Practical Robot Applications (TePRA) will be held in the Greater Boston Area, Massachusetts, USA on May 11 – 12, 2015. With an emphasis on practical applications and industrial participation, TePRA provides researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs and robotics professionals with a balanced forum in robotics science, engineering and technology. The presentations selected through IEEE's rigorous peer-review process highlights foundational science and technology contributions towards realizing practical robots, new uses of algorithms, components, and whole systems design in practical robot applications. Past TePRA conferences featured leaders in the field as keynote speakers including Colin Angle (iRobot), Kevin Blankespoor (Boston Dynamics), Henrik Christensen (Georgia Tech), Richard Erb (Robotics Trends), Helen Greiner (CyPhy Works), Joe Jones (Harvest Automation), Mathieu Kemp (Bluefin Robotics), Rob Maline (JGRE), Mark Micire (NASA), Mick Mountz (Kiva), Jorgen Pedersen (RE2), Gill Pratt (DARPA), Hanu Singh (WHOI), Mike Rufo (Boston Engineering), Tom Ryden (VGo Comm.), Eddie Tunstel (John Hopkins), Holly Yanco (UMass Lowell). As an emerging robotics conference, past TePRA programs included more than 200 technical paper and poster presentations combined, robot demonstrations, student competitions, panel sessions, exhibits, and strong industry participation. Recently, Springer Journal of Service Robotics, Special Issue on Technologies for Practical Robot Applications featured eight publications from TePRA 2013. The conference theme is the new scientific findings and technological developments in robotics and automation leading to practical robots.
