ESROCOS Workshop 
We hereby announce that the 15th edition of the ASTRA Conference will held a workshop on the topic of ‘Robot Control Operating System’ (RCOS) and will be chaired and led by the ESROCOS project consortium. This workshop follows on the topic of the RCOS Forum held in the 13th edition of ASTRA and the SARGON workshop held in ESTEC on July 2016. The workshop will run on a parallel session of the Conference for the full morning of the 21st of June. The workshop is open to all attendees of the ASTRA conference.

The purpose of the workshop is to present and discuss the approach and developments done under the ESROCOS project (EU-funded within the H2020-PERASPERA programme) and invite the community to participate in and steer such key activity for the future of space robotics applications.
