The 2007 AAAI Mobile Robot Workshop

    featuring "The Personal Robotics Revolution Panel" and
    presentations from The AAAI-07 Robot Exhibition and Competition

July 23, 2007
Vancouver, BC, Canada



This year will be the sixteenth edition of the AAAI Robotics Program and
Competition. The Robotics Program has a long tradition of demonstrating
innovating research in robotics. While the Mobile Robot Workshop has
been part of the robot program each year, our intention is to better to
better integrate with the overall AAAI conference through inclusion of
workshop as general AAAI conference workshop.

The AAAI Mobile Robot Workshop is an extension of the AAAI-07 Robotics
Program centered around the theme of “Cultivating Robotics Through
Practice.”  The workshop features both a panel on the Personal Robotics
Revolution and presentations from Robotics Program participants:

The Personal Robotics Revolution brings together individuals from
commercial and academic sectors of robotics to discuss the current and
future impact and accessibility of robots for the general public.
Panelists include:

    Bryan Adams (iRobot Corp.)
    Cynthia Breazeal (MIT Media Lab)
    Bill Smart (Washington Univ. in St. Louis)
    Stewart Tansley (Microsoft Research)
    Richard Vaughan (Simon Fraser University)

Participants from the AAAI 2007 Robot Competition and Exhibition will
present highlights of their work at this workshop.  The Robot
Competition is comprised challenges pertaining to Semantic Robot Vision
and Human-Robot Interaction.

Paper contributors to the AAAI-07 Technical Program are encouraged to
participate in the workshop and, if desired, present technical specifics
regarding implementation of their work.
