ALARIS principal investigator Dr. Almas Shintemirov and PhD researcher Iliyas Tursynbek participated in the flagship IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (IEEE CASE 2019), held in the beautiful green campus of the University of British Columbia at Vancouver, Canada, during August 22-26, 2019. PhD researcher Iliyas Tursynbek presented the paper titled “Computation of Unique Kinematic Solutions of a Spherical Parallel Manipulator with Coaxial Input Shafts”, while Dr. Shintemirov co-chaired the “Mechanism Design” conference section. Most of the conference participants represented USA, China and Germany institutions universities, being the leading automation and robotics research countries. The presented research work was the only paper from Kazakhstan and from the whole CIS region at the conference. During the conference researchers attended the plenary talk of renowned Professor of Robotics and Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University Matthew T. Mason, and had a change to discuss with him open research questions afterwards during the conference. As part of the conference, researchers visited several leading robotics and manufacturing labs of the University of British Columbia and had a change to learn about their research activities.
