ToRK 2019, aim’s to bring the researchers, educators and practitioners in Turkey to explore the frontiers of latest scientific and technological developments in robotic systems, through papers, workshops and invited talks. In this context, it is to discuss with our industrial participants and scientists how the needs and capabilities of our country can be enhanced by considering the international competition. In addition, the conference will facilitate to share the capacity of the laboratories working on robotics as well as to properly plan the research topics of the undergraduate / graduate students through compilation reports and research presentations (short papers). We would like to remind you that, on the first day of the conference besides the workshops, educational seminars will be conducted by robotics researchers in order to support young researchers.
