The International Symposium on Automation and Robotics in Construction and Mining (ISARC 2015) will be the 32nd Symposium, and will be held in Oulu, Finland, from June 15th to 18th of 2015.

ISARCs have been organised by members of the International Association for Automation and Robotics in Construction (IAARC) to address the needs and concerns of a global community in all fields of construction, including civil and building engineering, machine automation, robotics applications to construction, mining automation, infrastructure networks, construction and environmental sustainability, Information Technology innovations, planning, logistics, etc. IAARC welcomes participation from other industrial sectors and governments.

The ISARC 2015 will be a prestigious gathering of researchers, academics and industry practitioners in all specialty areas related to the construction, mining and built infrastructure industry. Apart from addressing latest advances in automation and robotic technologies for construction, building and mining, field instrumentation and sensors, excavation and haulage, safety and protection, fleet management, and computer-aided process design and optimization, ISARC 2015 will focus on issues of efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability in construction/mining automation and its interactions with the environment.

Welcome to Oulu!
