  • ATTENTION: 29.02.2024: Case of apparent identity theft: there have been email invitations sent out by the organizers of the "2nd Global Experts Conference on Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (GECRAl-24)" (https://mscholarconferences.com/GECRAI/52/home.html) on the pretended behalf of Stefan Rass. He has at no time consented to the use of his name for invitations or other advertising measures, and firmly distances himself from this (predatory) event. Official requests to remove his picture and name from the conference website have been submitted (pending).
