The conference theme is "Cyber-Physical Systems and Society" and the
following robotics highlights apply.
Special Sessions on Robotics
Organized by the IEEE SMC Society Technical Committee on Robotics and
Intelligent Sensing. Encouraged topics: Haptics, Fault Tolerant
Manipulation, Visual Servoing, 3D Ranging, Robot Vision, Mobile
Robotics, Walking Robots, Cyber-Physical Robot Systems.
Special Session on Medical and Health Care Robots
End-to-end applications, systems, and technologies, including
prototypes. Especially encouraged topics: Medical robots and systems
for Surgery, Health care & support, Rehabilitation and Nursing as well
as Power-assist robots, Tele-diagnosis systems, Artificial limbs, and
Brain machine interfaces.
Special Session on Shared Control
Intelligent systems that continuously share control authority with a
human controller, including both input-mixing and haptic shared
control. Example topics: Haptics and Teleoperation; Adjustable
Autonomy; Assistive Technology; Brain-Machine Interface Systems; Human
Centered Design; Human-Machine System Design; Intelligent Vehicle
Regular Session Papers on Robotics
Topics on Robotic & Autonomous Systems, Human-Robot Interaction, and
3rd Annual Workshop on Brain-Machine Interfaces (LATER DEADLINE of JUNE 1, 2011)
Co-sponsored jointly by the IEEE SMC Society, IEEE CAS Society, and
IEEE EMB Society with theme: "Problems and Solutions in Building
Real-World BMI Systems." Authors NEED NOT BE EXPERTS IN BMI itself,
but experts in systems engineering, human-machine systems, emerging
cybernetics, and/or circuits and systems areas that can be, or are
needed to be, applied to practical BMI system implementations.
