The IMA Conference on the Mathematics of Robotics aims to bring together researchers working on all areas of robotics which have a signiﬁcant Mathematical content. The idea is to highlight the Mathematical depth and sophistication of techniques applicable to Robotics and to foster cooperation between researchers working in different areas of Robotics. This Conference has been organised in cooperation with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
