[robotics-worldwide] *Deadline extension*: IJRR Special Issue on Autonomous Physical Human–Robot Interaction

Paolo Robuffo Giordano
Dear colleagues,

due to several requests, the deadline for the submission of papers to
the IJRR Special Issue on Autonomous Physical Human–Robot Interaction
has been extended to *October 28th, 2011*.
Note that this deadline is firm and will not be further extended.
Please, find below the call for papers.



Call for papers reminder: International Journal of Robotics Research

Special issue: Autonomous Physical Human–Robot Interaction


Abstract

The design of robots that are able to operate in physical contact with
humans and directly interact with them in an intuitive
and safe manner has been intensively studied from numerous perspectives.
Recently, applications that involve physical Human–
Robot Interaction (pHRI) even entered factory floors, making pHRI an
important topic of current robotics research. The problem
was addressed from the design, control, and motion planning aspects,
leading to very powerful solutions to the specific subcases
of the general interaction problem; however, the fields were often
treated separately from each other and a unifying
holistic concept is still lacking. Furthermore, the autonomous execution
of complex physical interaction tasks remains an open
problem. It especially necessitates the systematic combination of
higher-level cognitive perception–action loops with underlying
low-level control behavior.

To address these challenges, IJRR invites papers
for a Special Issue on Autonomous Physical Human–Robot Interaction. We
intend to publish excellent contributions from
disciplines directly or indirectly related to the field of pHRI. This
includes robot design, interaction control, motion planning,
human–human and human–robot interaction, haptics, learning, autonomous
control, and behavioral science. We expect that
this special issue will succeed in capturing the current
state-of-the-art of pHRI and help guide the direction of future research.
Certainly, it will have the potential to lead to fruitful,
interdisciplinary discussions in the community, to point towards novel
approaches for solving the general interaction problem, and to open up
new applications of pHRI.


List of Topics

Papers are solicited on all aspects of pHRI and related fields,
including, but not limited to, the following.

• Design of human-friendly robots.
• Physical human–robot interaction.
• Sensing and actuation principles for pHRI.
• Safety measures and analysis for pHRI.
• Interaction control and strategies in physical cooperation and
interaction.
• Learning for pHRI.
• Biologically inspired principles for interaction between humans and
robots.
• Planning and on-line adaptation of human-friendly motion.
• Application and evaluation of physical human–robot interaction in
complex scenarios.
• Psychophysical and human-factor studies on the best sensory
combination to interface humans and robots.

Papers must contain high-quality original contributions and be prepared
in accordance with the International Journal of
Robotics Research standards. Review papers of an excellent quality will
also be considered. Submitted manuscripts must not
have been published already or be under review for possible publication
elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed following the
regular reviewing procedure of IJRR.


Manuscript Submission

Upload manuscripts to: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ijrr. Under
“Manuscript Type”, select “Physical HRI”. Instructions for
authors, with information about “Multimedia Extensions”, are available
on-line at:

http://www.uk.sagepub.com/repository/binaries/pdf/Multimedia_Extension_submissions.pdf.

Authors need only upload to http://www.mc.manuscript.com/ijrr a complete
pdf of their paper for the first stage of the review process.

Please note: ScholarOne Manuscripts accepts PDF files up to version 1.5
created with Adobe 7.0 or earlier.
The latest version of the pdfTex compiler  (pdfTeX-1.40.11) outputs PDF
files in a version not currently supported by ScholarOne Manuscripts.

[robotics-worldwide] MTM-Robotics 2012

Grigore GOGU

Dear colleagues,

due to several requests, the deadline for the submission of papers to
the MTM-Robotics 2012 has been extended to November 28, 2011.
Note that this deadline is firm and will not be further extended.


Please, find below the call for papers with the updated deadlines.


We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this message.

Call for Papers for MTM & Robotics 2012 - The Joint International Conference
of the XI International Conference on Mechanisms and Mechanical
Transmissions
(MTM) and the International Conference on Robotics (Robotics’12),
Clermont-Ferrand, France, June 6-8, 2012  

http://www.ifma.fr/mtm-robotics2012

Organized by
Pascal Institute (CNRS, IFMA, UBP) and Department of Mechatronics (UPT) at
the French Institute for Advanced Mechanics in Clermont-Ferrand, France

Under the Patronage of IFToMM and RSR
International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science
(IFToMM)
Robotics Society of Romania (RSR)

With the support of
Blaise Pascal University (UBP)
Centre National de la Recherché Scientifique  (CNRS) French Institute for
Advanced Mechanics (IFMA) University “Politehnica” of Timisoara (UPT)

The joint conference will be held in Clermont-Ferrand, at the French
Institute for Advanced Mechanics (IFMA). The organization of this joint
conference is part of a series of scientific and cultural events celebrating
the 20 years of IFMA. Clermont-Ferrand is the capital of Auvergne, a region
of the centre of France, with an incredible diversity of landscapes (a range
of dormant volcanoes which is unique in Europe, wild gorges, lakes and
mountain peaks). Homeland of Blaise Pascal, the region has a rich history
and culture whose charm we invite you to discover. Clermont-Ferrand is
easily accessible from all countries by plane, train or car (see website).
The previous editions were held in Romania, beginning in 1972 under the
patronage of IFToMM and RSR. This is the first edition to be organized
outside Romania and we hope to give it a strong international flavour.
 
Aim
The aim of the joint conference is to bring together researchers,
scientists, industry experts and PhD students to provide a general forum for
researchers, engineers and PhD students involved in the general area of
mechanisms, mechanical transmissions, robotics and mechatronics, to
disseminate their latest research results and exchange views on the future
research directions of these fields.
