Mechatronics and Aerospace
The Mechatronics and Aerospace Industry in Europe is one of the most advanced industries in the world and also highly accredited for its sustainable job creation during the recent economic downturn time. Within the vast Mechatronics area, the robotics is one of the key areas that South Korea invests a lot of efforts to catch up the gap. This session group aims to gather together Korean and European Mechatronics and Aerospace experts for their exchange of opinions and viewpoints on the Korean/European Projects and related Industries, review the current and new development projects, in view of potential cooperation in this domain. This session group therefore organizes the following sessions: • Session 1 – Aerospace electronics and systems • Session 2 – Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering • Session 3 – Robotics - Human-Robot Interaction

Synopsis
The importance of spaceborne systems such as Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and European Data Relay Satellite (EDRS) are heavily increasing as the satellite-based applications and services are steadily evolving and becoming a seamless part of the global infrastructure. As a significant example, the GNSS receiver market is composed of many different forms of applications such as aviation, maritime and land. Its market size has achieved a cumulative annual growth rate of 20 to 25% for last 30 years after the first GPS was opened for civilian purposes. On the user segment side, the recent boom of smartphones in conjunction with Location-Based Service (LBS) introduced various unexpected emerging applications. In the space segment side, recent advances in space technology such as laser communication terminal, miniaturization of electronics and systems and electric propulsion are enabling a new type of flexible, compact and agile missions and concepts. An annual growth of 15-20% is expected in the LEO satellite market for the next 5 to 10 years. Also the launch segment market is exposed to strong competition since new players such as private companies are offensively emerging with their launch systems and services besides the governmental funding based counterparts. Additionally, numerous so called nano launchers are in development to meet the rapidly increasing demand of small spacecrafts and make space access as easy as never before. This session aims to present the current state-of-the-art technology and future trends in advanced spacecraft systems, related electronic systems and their application. A particular focus will be laid on in the technology evolution and its market and national policies so as to find common interests between European and Korean participants.

Synopsis
The mechanical and aerospace industry in Europe is traditionally the hi-tech leading concentrated industry in terms of R&D and job creation. The recent major interest in the European industry and academia is to concern the environmental impacts and the energy efficiency/new sustainable energy resources by applying new light on fundamentals as well as innovative ideas to the practical/commercialised applications. This session aims to discuss the fundamentals of fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, structural mechanics and dynamics and their applications to the design of advanced mechanical and aerospace engineering systems. It is anticipated that the sessions will show the future vision towards the technology trend and priorities of development in the industry, as well as seeking for potential cooperation subjects between Korean and European organisations/institutes.

Synopsis
Numerous learning approaches have been applied in robotics to teach new skills to robot, e.g., imitations leaning (kinesthetic teaching, teleoperation, observational learning), reinforcement learning, etc. However, learning approaches in real-world robotic applications are challenging for different reasons. Especially, real-world robotic applications are more challenging for complex tasks. An interesting approach is the use of human feedback containing the human's evaluation on the robots's behaviors in learning, which can be successfully applied in human-robot interactions and human-robot collaborations. The goal of this session is to provide a forum for researchers to present research results and facilitate the exchange of ideas between researchers in Europa and Korea. We invite contributions about the current advances, innovations, and applications in topics of interest but are not limited to: - Machine learning in robotic applications - Robot behavior adaptation based on learning approaches using human feedback - Robot behavior optimization using brain-machine interfaces - Human-robot interaction / human-robot collaboration - Robotics in any real-world applications
