[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] 3rd CFP: 2018 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics (IEEE ROBIO 2018)

Juan Rojas
The 2018 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics (IEEE
ROBIO 2018) will be held December 12~15, 2018, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
As the 15th
in the ROBIO conference series, IEEE ROBIO 2018 will be another tremendous
event for fruitful intellectual and social interactions among colleagues
and friends in robotics, biomimetics and related fields. The theme of
ROBIO 2018 is Fusion of Robotics, Biomimetics and Al, reflecting
interests in robotics and biomimetics, and rapid development in artificial
intelligence. We solicit full-length, high-quality, and original papers on
but not limited in the following topics:


   - New theory and technology in robotics and biomimetics
   - Bio-inspired robots, e.g., climbing, creeping and walking robots
   - Soft robotics and liquid-metal robotics
   - Artificial intelligence in robotics
   - Autonomous mobile robots and manipulators
   - Space robots, aerial robots, and underwater robots
   - MEMS, NEMS, nano-technology, and micro/nano systems
   - Human-robot interaction
   - Smart sensors and actuators
   - Robotic vision and image processing
   - Multi-sensor data fusion and sensor networks
   - Multi-robot systems, swarm robots, and collaborative robots
   - Medical robotics, biomedical and rehabilitation engineering
   - Robotics in intelligent manufacturing
   - Applications of robotics and biomimetics

Besides promising to be a great platform for scientific and technical
communication, the conference will also bring opportunities for social
programs in Kuala Lumpur (KL). As the capital city of Malaysia, KL boasts
gleaming skyscrapers, colonial architecture, charming locals, delicious
foods of various type, wonderful fruits, and a myriad of natural
attractions. It is widely recognized for numerous landmarks, including
Petronas Twin Towers, Rotary KL Tower, Skybar, and Batu Caves, which is
over 400 million years old.
