The Centre for Science Studies is pleased to invite colleagues to the LIRA 2022 Annual Conference on Intelligent, Robotic and Autonomous Systems, which will take place on July 27th at the Lancaster House Hotel, from 9:00AM to 5:00PM.
The conference will gather Lancaster University’s scholars and invited speakers to share research on the application of autonomous technologies across disciplines such as security and defence, nuclear decommissioning, biomedical, and society and human behaviour.
The event is being funded and organized by LIRA (Lancaster Intelligent, Robotic and Autonomous Systems Research Centre), which is an interdisciplinary forum that brings together academics, researchers and students from across different faculties and departments of Lancaster University.
It is free to attend, but registration is required for catering purposes. For those interested, please send an e-mail with name and affiliation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
