About the event
The Intelligent Robotic and Autonomous Systems (IRAS) conference is a two day event organised by the Department of Engineering and the School of Computing and Communications, both within the Faculty of Science and Technology at Lancaster University sponsored by EPSRC. The aim of this forum is to create an opportunity for focused networking and discussions, presentations and demos, consortia building and exchange of best practice aiming at consolidating the existing critical mass in the North-West of England, but expanding towards larger and stronger consortia including leading academics, industry, public and other stakeholders. Indeed, IRAS are one of the key areas of growth identified by the Government and North West of England has a strategic place in this industry.
