[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] CFP: IEEE IECON 2018 - Collaborative Robotics in Smart Manufacturing

Pedro Neto
Dear Roboticist,

The deadline for IEEE IECON was extended to June 30.

The IECON 2018 Special Session on Collaborative Robotics in Smart Manufacturing is an opportunity to join experts that work in the broad area of collaborative robotics and human-robot interaction in manufacturing domain.

Please, select the correct special session at the moment of the submission. The papers submitted to the special session are considered as regular IECON papers (high quality is expected).

The submission system is here:


The complete call for papers is below.

Robots are a key element to achieve manufacturing competitiveness, especially if they are able to collaborate with humans in a shared workspace in the shop-floor, creating a co-working partnership. The paradigm for robot usage has changed from an idea in which robots work with complete autonomy to a scenario in which robots collaborate with humans. This means taking the best of each partner, by exploring the cognitive and dexterity capabilities of humans and the capacity of robots to produce repetitive work and provide assistance.

== Topics ==

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1) Cognitive and physical human-robot interaction

2) Collaborative robots and co-working

3) Robot safety and standardization

4) Mobile manipulators

5) Navigation and localization

6) Autonomous grasping

7) Robot programming by demonstration

8) Collaborative robot design

9) Advanced manufacturing applications

== Important Dates ==

Paper submission: June 30, 2018

Acceptance notification: July 15, 2018

Final paper submission: August 1, 2018

== Proceedings ==

This special session aims to brought together researchers from various sectors (academia, government, and industry). Academicians, researchers, students, and industry professionals had the opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas, enlarge networks, and present recent progress and achievements in the emerging areas of application of collaborative robots in manufacturing. All the instructions for paper submission are included in the conference website https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__iecon2018.com_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=HWwSiJXedJWfAKkXfsl_p9nejcYdIWGjmQ09crWkLpI&s=Tw9iy4nXAnjW_65_mb5eT5V59vpV4WMHT19sCvMvgN0&e=. The papers accepted for presentation in the special session will appear in IEEEXplore.
