Join RiE 2018, the 9th International Conference on Robotics in Education

Malta, April 18-20, 2018

The 9th International Conference on Robotics in Education (RiE) is aimed at the presentation and discussion of the latest results and methods in the fields of research and development in Educational Robotics. Researchers are brought together that work on new applications, the latest products, or systems and components for using robotics in schools, in universities and in informal education. The objective is to provide an insight into the state-of-the-art of Educational Robotics to participants from both academic and school education.


All accepted papers that meet the requirements and standards of Springer will be published as a special volume in the prestigious Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing Series. The proceedings will be available via the SpringerLink digital library. The volumes of this series are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services including ISI Proceedings, EI-Compendex, DBLP, SCOPUS, Google Scholar and Springerlink. For more Information about the book series and about indexing visit Springer website:

RiE conferences have a history of previous successful editions due to the continuously growing interest in Educational Robotics in Europe and world-wide. RiE conferences count so far 8 editions; in Bratislava (2010), Vienna (2011), Prague (2012), Lodz (2013), Padua (2014), Yverdon-les-Bains (2015), Vienna (2016) and Sofia (2017). 

The conference will include plenary sessions, contributed paper sessions and exhibits. The final program will be the result of a highly selective review process designed to include the best work of its kind in every category. Video presentations are recommended when they help presenters to offer a better understanding of robots, experiments and technical or educational practices. We expect an exciting conference program, and cordially invite researchers and educators from the field of Educational Robotics to submit their papers.

We are looking forward to receiving your papers and to meeting you in Malta in April 2018!
