[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] CFP: IEEE INDIN 2018 - Collaborative Mobile manipulators for Industry Application

Pedro Neto
Dear Roboticist,

It is my pleasure to announce the IEEE INDIN 2018 Special Session on Collaborative Mobile manipulators for Industry Application. This special session can be an opportunity to join experts that work in the broad area of collaborative robotics, mobile manipulators and human-robot interaction in manufacturing domain.

 Please, consider that the papers submitted are considered as regular IEEE INDIN papers (high quality is expected).

The submission system is here:


The deadline is March 30.

The complete call for papers is below.


Pedro Neto, Paulo Moreira, Germano Veiga

Collaborative mobile manipulators are a key element to achieve manufacturing competitiveness and flexibility, especially if they are able to interact and collaborate with humans in a shared workspace. The paradigm for robot usage has changed from an idea in which robots work in a repetitive and automated mode to a scenario in which robots collaborate with humans. This means taking the best of each partner, human and robot, by exploring the cognitive and dexterity capabilities of humans (focus on value-added tasks) and the capacity of robots to produce repetitive work and provide assistance. Humans should be able to cognitively and physically interact with robots using gestures, touch commands and task demonstration. Robots should be able to navigate autonomously in the factory floor to pick up the required parts and tools and prepare kits.

== Topics ==

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Human-robot collaboration/interaction

- Physical human-robot interaction

- Cognitive human-robot interaction

- Robot autonomy

- Human/obstacle-robot Collision avoidance

- Human-robot interfaces for fast robot system setup

- Grasping

- Assembly and precision assembly

- Robot navigation

- New robot applications in advanced manufacturing

== Important Dates ==

Paper submission: March 30, 2018

Acceptance notification: May 04, 2018

Final paper submission: June 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 mobile manipulators in manufacturing. All the instructions for paper submission are included in the conference website. The papers accepted for presentation in the special session will appear in IEEEXplore.
