Join RiE 2015, the 6th International Conference on Robotics in Education

and enjoy wonderful locations in

Yverdon-les-Bains – Switzerland
May 20-22, 2015

The conference will offer the latest results in the fields of research and development in Educational Robotics as well as new applications, the latest products, systems and components for using robotics in schools, in universities and in informal education.


RiE conferences have a history of previous successful editions which witness the continuously growing interest in educational robotics in Europe and world-wide. RiE conferences count so far 5 editions; in Bratislava (2010), Vienna (2011), Prague (2012), Lodz (2013), and Padua (2014). Accepted papers will be published with two goals:  one is to become widely available on the internet, like for  past editions; and the other one relates to usual  ISBN-based, copyright protection.

RiE 2015 is part of the Swiss Robotic Days 2015, Robots:15, with events in science, technology, arts, along with international robotic competitions, at Yverdon-les-Bains between 21 and 25 May, 2015, and benefits also from a sponsoring of IEEE Switzerland and of SGAICO, the Swiss Group for Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Sciences of the Swiss association for Informatics.

RiE 2015 aims at providing an insight to  state-of-the-art educational robotics to participants from both academic and school education. Sessions will be held on Research and Development as well as Components & Technologies, also Robotics in Production… Video presentations are recommended when they help presenters to offer a better understanding of robots, experiments and technical or educational practices. There will be also a poster session. We expect an exciting conference programme, and cordially invite researchers and educators from the field of Educational Robotics to submit their papers.

The official language of the Conference is English; nevertheless, some contributions in French are also possible, in synergy with regional host situation.

We are looking forward to receiving your papers and to meeting you in Yverdon-les-Bains in May 2015!
