"Over the past ten years, designers have been teased by the potential applications of 3D printing. Anything from 3D-printed cars to violins; 3D printing has been proclaimed to be the inception of the Fourth Industrial Revolution," states Xavier De Kestelier. 

As he puts it, "Although 3D printing has been a major disrupter in medical sciences, mechanical engineering and to a certain extent consumer products, It could be argued that its true impact on the architecture industry is yet to come."

The Robotics Debates will be developed in two blocks. Each block consisting of keynotes and a subsequent debate between the speakers followed by a questions and answers session.
