Profile:
Lambèr Royakkers (1967) is associate professor in Ethics and Technology at the Department School of Innovation Sciences of the Eindhoven University of Technology. Lambèr Royakkers has studied mathematics, philosophy, and law. In 1996, he obtained his PhD on the logic of legal norms. During the last few years, he has done research and published in the following areas: ICT and ethics, robo-ethics, deontic logic and moral responsibility. His research has an interdisciplinary character and focuses on the interface between ethics, law, and technology. In 2009, he started as project leader the NWO-MVI research program ‘Moral fitness of military personnel in a networked operational environment’ (2009-2014). He was involved in a European project, as chairman of the ethics advisory board of the FP7-project SUBCOP (SUicide Bomber COunteraction and Prevention, 2013-2016). Royakkers has authored and co-authored more than 10 books, including Ethics, Engineering and Technology (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011), Moral Responsibility and the Problem of Many Hands (Taylor & Francis Gropup, 2015), and Just Ordinary Robots: Automation from love to War (CRC Press, 2016).

Profile:
Angel Pasqual del Pobil is a Professor of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at Jaume I University (Spain), where he is the founding director of the UJI Robotic Intelligence Laboratory, and a Visiting Professor at Sungkyungkwan University (Korea). He holds a B.S. in Physics (Electronics, 1986) and a Ph.D. in Engineering (Robotics, 1991), both from the University of Navarra. He has been Co-Chair of two Technical Committees of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and is a member of the Governing Board of the Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS) Society (2012-present) and EURON (European Robotics Research Network of Excellence, 2001-present). He has over 200 publications, including 11 books the last three published recently by Springer: Robot Physical Interaction through the combination of Vision, Tactile and Force Feedback (2013), Robust motion detection in real-life scenarios (2012), and The Visual Neuroscience of Robotic Graspoing (2015). Prof. del Pobil was co-organizer some 40 workshops and tutorials including: five at ICRA (1996, 2000, 2010-2012), ten at IROS (2000, 2004-2013), three at RSS (2008-2010, 2012), ECAI04, ICAR05 and ACM/IEEE HRI 2010. He was Program Co-Chair of the 11th International Conference on Industrial and Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, General Chair of five editions of the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing (2004-2008) and General Chair of the International Conference on Simulation of Adaptive Behaviour (SAB 2014). He is Associate Editor for ICRA (2009-2013) and IROS (2007-2012) and has served on the program committees of over 100 international conferences, such as IJCAI, ICPR, ICRA, IROS, EUROS, IAS, ICAR, CIRA, etc. The UJI Robotic Intelligence Lab has organized 12 consecutive editions of IURS, the International UJI Robotics School. He has been General Chair for IURS 2005 on Robotics and Neuroscience, IURS 2006 on Humanoid Robots, IURS 2009 on Visuomotor Coordination and IURS 2012 on Perceptual Robotics. He has been involved in robotics research for the last 26 years, his past and present research interests include: humanoid robots, service robotics, internet robots, motion planning, mobile manipulation, visually-guided grasping, robot perception, multimodal sensorimotor transformations, robot physical and human interaction, visual servoing, robot learning, developmental robotics, and the interplay between neurobiology and robotics. Professor del Pobil has been invited speaker of 56 tutorials, plenary talks, and seminars in 14 countries. He serves as associate or guest editor for seven journals, including the new Springer journal Intelligent Service Robotics, and as expert for research evaluation at the European Commission, the US National Science Foundation and the Spain Ministry of Science. He has supervised 15 Ph.D. Thesis, including winner and finalist of the Georges Giralt EURON PhD Award and the Robotdalen Scientific Award Honorary Mention. He has been Principal Investigator of 28 research projects. Recent projects at the Robotic Intelligence Lab funded by the European Commission include: FP6 GUARDIANS (Group of Unmanned Assistant Robots Deployed In Aggregative Navigation supported by Scent detection), FP7 EYESHOTS (Heterogeneous 3-D Perception Across Visual Fragments), FP7 GRASP (Emergence of Cognitive Grasping through Emulation, Introspection, and Surprise), and FP7 TRIDENT (Marine Robots and Dexterous Manipulation for Enabling Autonomous Underwater Multipurpose Intervention Missions). Del Pobil is an active member of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and a lifetime member of the Association of the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).
