2nd Symposium on Force Control in Robotics & SRI Users Conference


The Symposium on Force Control in Robotics aims to provide a platform for force‐control professionals to interact and to promote the development of robotic force‐controlled technology and applications. Robotics companies, universities, research institutions, professionals in robotics and automation, end users, suppliers, and media are all invited to participate!

The conference topics include force‐controlled polishing and grinding, intelligent robotic, rehabilitation robots, humanoid robots, surgical robots, exoskeletons, and intelligent robot platforms that integrate multiple signals such as force, displacement, and vision.

In 2018, over 100 experts and scholars from many countries attended the 1st Symposium. This year, the symposium will also invite over 100 experts from industry, providing an excellent opportunity for participants to share their experiences in robotic force control, explore industry applications and potential cooperation.



Prof. Jianwei Zhang

Director of the Institute of Multimodal Technology, University of Hamburg, Germany, Member of the Hamburg Academy of Sciences, Germany

Vice Chairman of ICRA2011 Program, Chairman of International Association of Electrical and Electronic Engineers Multi-Sensor Fusion 2012, Chairman of the World Top Conference on Intelligent Robots IROS2015, Chairman of Hujiang Intelligent Robot Forum HCR2016, HCR2018.


Dr. York Huang

President of Sunrise Instruments (SRI)

The world's top multi-axis force sensor expert with rich experience in the field of force sensors and force control polishing. The former US FTSS chief engineer (the world's top automotive crash dummy company), designed most of FTSS's multi-axis force sensors. In 2007, he returned to China and founded Sunrise Instruments (SRI), leading SRI to become ABB's global supplier, and launched the iGrinder intelligent force control grinding head.
