The content of the seminar will focus both on practical aspects of robots applications for security, as well as the theoretical and research issues: current state and prospects for development of technical and tactical aspects of mobile robotics and unmanned vehicles; current and anticipated threats and methods to combat them; economic, legal and ethical issues related to the usage of robotic devices; practical experiences of the users of robots and unmanned vehicles.

Besides scientists and military officers from different European countries, among the speakers is the Vice-Minister of Polish National Defence, gen. Waldemar Skrzypczak.
