Frankfurt, Mar 31, 2020 — The IFR Executive Round Table, the IERA Award presentation and the International Symposium on Robotics ISR are postponed to December 2020. All events are co-located at the automatica trade fair in Munich. The organizers of the event just announced a postponement related to the coronavirus.

Due to the increasing global spread of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and based on the recommendations of the German Federal Government and the Bavarian State Government, Messe Munich felt compelled to postpone automatica 2020. This measure has been taken in consultation with the VDMA Robotics + Automation Association as conceptual sponsor and in responsibility for the health of exhibitors and visitors. automatica 2020 will instead take place from December 8 to 11, 2020.

The IFR Executive Round Table as press event will now take place on December 9, 2020.

The International Symposium on Robotics ISR will now take place on December 9-10, 2020. The IERA Award final presentation as part of the ISR program will be held on December 9, 2020.

The postponements of the automatica will also have an effect on the IFR General Assembly and Committee meetings. We will inform members of the respective groups directly on the changed schedules.
