    Robotics: Science and Systems 2006

    Location: University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
    Dates:    August 16-19, 2006
    Web site: http://roboticsconference.org/

The RSS 2006 conference brings together researchers working on
algorithmic or mathematical foundations of robotics, robotics
applications, and analysis of robotic systems. High quality, original
papers are solicited in all areas of robotics. The final program is the
result of a highly selective review process designed to include the best
work in every category. The conference format is single track to give
attendees an opportunity to see the best research in all areas of
robotics. The program includes invited talks as well as oral and poster
presentations of refereed papers. All papers presented at the conference
will be published in the conference proceedings by MIT Press and will be
made freely available for download on the Internet. The main conference
will be followed by one day of workshops. A concerted effort has been
made to keep conference expenses affordable, particularly for student
