This second conference on the economic impact of robots and automation will take place ­on September 18/19, 2023, at ­­Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Germany, in cooperation with the International Federation of Robotics (IFR). This conference aims to establish a platform for all economists working in the quickly growing field of robots, automation, and artificial intelligence.
