[robotics-worldwide] [journals] Call for papers: IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters (IEEE RA-L) Special Issue on Learning and Control for Autonomous Manipulation Systems: the Role of Dimensionality Reduction

Pietro Falco
Dear Colleagues,
due to the large number of requests, we decided to extend the submission
deadline (November 21, 2017) for the IEEE RA-L Special Issue on “Learning
and Control for Autonomous Manipulation Systems: the Role of Dimensionality
Reduction”

Please, visit the official webpage of the Special Issue at

https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ieee-2Dras.org_publications_ra-2Dl_special-2Dissues_learning-2Dand-2Dcontro&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=9wEeNhFDq3AOXuo6CzP0Mwa8pQhmgoOAUMqOVnW6ENU&s=HnoMh2KJLSXmSORU75SbUzkrTTgdceq-1uKEuBFHwIY&e=

Summary

The special issue presents a hot topic in robotic manipulation that is how
to merge learning and control strategies to provide autonomy to robotic
systems. This is a fundamental problem for robotic manipulation and it
touches different functional system levels based on both visual and tactile
perception and also affects the mechanical design of the robot parts that
move and interact with the environment. The anthropomorphism contemplated in
the mechanical design encourages the inspiration of learning techniques and
control from the functioning of the human being. This implies the
involvement of a large research community not only in the field of robotics
but also the community of neuroscientists. The problem is highly
multi-disciplinary, and different approaches from control theory, machine
learning, and artificial intelligence, will be compared and possibly
combined.


============================================================================
==============================================================
Motivation
The topic of this Special Issue was the subject of a full-day workshop
“Learning and control for autonomous manipulation systems: the role of
dimensionality reduction”, organized at ICRA 2017 by the guest editors. The
large attendance (among 80-100 participants), the quality of the speakers,
and the relevance of the addressed topics of research have been key elements
for the success of the workshop. The Special Issue wants to collect an even
broader scope of contributions, and make them available in archival format.
