The 2016 ROS-Industrial Training and Conference will be co-located on consecutive days on the premises of Fraunhofer IPA's main campus in Stuttgart, Germany. The two eventes can be attended separately, but if you are attending the training we warmly recommend you to stay for the conference as well, and we designed the program to make it easy for you to do so!
The schedule of the training covers both general ROS topics, in collaboration with FH Aachen, and specific ROS-Industrial packages, in collaboration with members of the ROS-Industrial Consortium Europe.
The schedule of the conference is designed to best fit our international attendees to the conference, allowing for the inbound travel to Stuttgart to take place on the morning of Thursday November 3, and for the return travel on the afternoon of the following day.
Fraunhofer IPA, Nobelstrasse 12, 70569 Stuttgart - Germany
Rooms (there will be signs guiding the participants from the front gate to the exact location):
- training will be performed in the Care-o-Bot lab (building E, 3rd floor)
- day 1 of the conference will be held in the Hörsaal A+B (building A, ground floor)
- day 2 of the conference will be held in the IFF-Hörsaal (IFF building, ground floor)
The social dinner on Thursday Nov 3 will be held at the Commundo Tagungshotel Stuttgart, a short walk from Fraunhofer IPA.

We recommend two hotels in the vicinity of Fraunhofer IPA:
- the Commundo Tagungshotel, at walking distance to the event venue
- the relaxa Waldhotel Schatten, immersed in a nice location in the surrounding woods
Plenty of hotel choices are available as well in downtown Stuttgart, from which you can easily reach Fraunhofer IPA through the S1/S2/S3 subway lines.
