There has been a growing trend in autonomous robotics research through incorporating ideas from machine learning, computer vision but also in the application of robotics in new fields and domains of application such as medicine and healthcare. Core ideas from the field of artificial intelligence are being actively applied in a variety of subfields of robotics such as localization and navigation, control, task and motion planning, robotic manipulation, robot environment perception, and many others. It is a very exciting time and place to be in and to be part of the robotics community. 

Due to the intensified technology development around the world, industries are trying to reduce manpower while incorporating novel AI methods and intelligent and autonomous robots. The two main prerequisites for developing intelligent and autonomous robots is reasoning and learning. Reasoning, in the context of robotics, deals with continuous computation given the sensory data, past knowledge, and anticipated information in order to fulfil an objective or task. Learning, on the other hand, deals with leveraging past experiences to make fast and more accurate decisions without necessarily looking into the future. The paradigms of reasoning and learning can be combined in creative ways to solve problems within the robotics domain in a better and more flexible way.

The RTA section aims to provide a forum for discussion among professionals, industrialists, students, and researchers in the field of robotics and autonomous systems to share their research experiences and indulge in interactive discussions at the event. The focus will be oriented on intelligent and autonomous robots and their application in various fields ranging from industry to medicine.

Accepted papers will be published in the ISSN registered conference proceedings. Presented papers in English will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library (and exclusively not presented papers with the justified reason for not being able to be presented).
There is a possibility that the selected scientific papers with some further modification and refinement are being published in the Journal of Computing and Information Technology (CIT).


Opatija, with its 170-year-old tourism tradition, is the leading seaside resort of the Eastern Adriatic and one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Mediterranean. With its aristocratic architecture and style, Opatija has been attracting artists, kings, politicians, scientists, sportsmen, as well as business people, bankers and managers for more than 170 years.

The tourist offer in Opatija includes a vast number of hotels, excellent restaurants, entertainment venues, art festivals, superb modern and classical music concerts, beaches and swimming pools – this city satisfies all wishes and demands.

Opatija, the Queen of the Adriatic, is also one of the most prominent congress cities in the Mediterranean, particularly important for its ICT conventions, one of which is MIPRO, which has been held in Opatija since 1979, and has attracted more than a thousand participants from over forty countries. These conventions promote Opatija as one of the most desirable technological, business, educational and scientific centers in South-eastern Europe and the European Union in general.
