[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] TAROS 2018 – Deadline Extended

Please be informed that the submission deadline for the TAROS 2018 -
Nineteenth Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems (TAROS) Conference - has been
extended to February 14.

Scope of the Conference
TAROS is the longest running UK-hosted international conference on Robotics
and Autonomous Systems (RAS), which is aimed at the presentation and
discussion of the latest results and methods in autonomous robotics research
and applications.
TAROS offers a friendly environment for robotics researchers and industry to
take stock and plan future progress. It welcomes senior researchers and
research students alike, and specifically provides opportunities for
research students and young research scientists to present their work to the
scientific community.

Important Dates
Submission deadline: February 14, 2018
Notification of acceptance: April 2, 2018
Final paper version submission: April 28, 2018  
Conference: July 25-27, 2018

Relevant Research Areas
Contributions are sought in all areas relevant to the overall goal of the
conference, including—but not limited to—the following topics:
Autonomous robots (in industry and research)
Assistive, service and personal robotics
Aerial robots (unmanned- and micro- air vehicles) space and planetary
Medical robotics, robots for surgery and intelligent prosthetics
Humanoid and walking robots
Swarm, collective and field robotics
Modular reconfigurable robots
Human-Robot interaction
Multimodal interfaces
Navigation, localization, map building and path planning, Analysis of
robot-environment interaction
Robot autonomy including energy self-sufficiency, control architectures,
vision, sensing and perception
Applications development, hardware issues, devices and techniques
Advanced sensors and actuators
Advanced materials and techniques
Autonomous vehicles
Biomimetic, bio-inspired and bio-hybrid robotic systems
Evolutionary, cognitive and developmental robotics
Robot communication and language
Ethical and societal issues in robotics
Robots in education, the arts and entertainment
Safety, verification and validation for robotic applications
Learning and adaptation
Long-term interaction and operation
Modelling and analysis

These topics cover a wide range of research communities including multimodal
interaction, dialogue systems, human-robot interaction, robotics, automated
planning, computer vision, and signal processing. Due to the
interdisciplinary nature of the conference, relevant contributions from
other fields will also be welcome.

Publication Details
TAROS 2018 invites both full papers and extended abstracts. The proceedings
will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence
series. All contributions will be refereed. Full papers are invited from
researchers at any stage in their career but should present significant
findings and advances in robotics research; more preliminary work would be
better suited to extended abstract submission. Full papers (up to 12 pages
in LNCS format) will be accepted for either oral presentation (single track)
or poster presentation. Extended abstracts will be accepted for poster
presentation only.
