The 32nd annual International Symposium on Automatics and Robotics in Construction and Mining, also known as ISARC, will be held in Oulu, June 15-18, 2015.
The purpose of each ISARC event is to address the global concerns and needs of every construction industry, ranging from civil engineering to environmental sustainability.
This year’s symposium will focus on one main theme: Connected to the Future. Participants were able to submit papers within this theme, and the wide variety of subtopics includes dredging automation, remote mining and advanced computing.
