Today's robots are merely automated machines confined in specific
environments in manufacturing or service industry. The robots of
tomorrow will certainly take different shapes, and penetrate into
different domains of applications for tasks or entertainments which are
both physically and mentally challenging. 

Today, we are witnessing the rapid expansion of robotics technology from
the R&D of industrial robots to the new R&D frontiers leading to the
development of a vast variety of special robots such as humanoid robots,
cognitive robots, evolutionary robots, medical robots, bio-mimetic
robots, and active systems in land, air and under-water. This new trend
gives us a unique opportunity to promote and advance knowledge
indispensable for effective construction of new robots or active
systems. These man-made creatures are useful to extend human being's
physical and mental abilities for difficult, delicate and dangerous jobs
in manufacturing, construction, service industry, agriculture,
healthcare, medical intervention, defense and space exploration. 

Hence, this book series aims at serving as a platform to timely publish
monographs, lecture notes and review volumes on new and emerging
technologies contributing to the design, analysis, control and
application of special robots or active systems. The areas of interest
include, but are not limited to, Robotics, Mechatronics, Structronics
(e.g. active control of a bridge's suspension system, active control of
tall buildings), Machine Perception, Machine Learning, Cognitive
Engineering, Artificial Psychology and Artificial Intelligence.

We warmly welcome book proposals for: 


Monographs, which describe the in-depth knowledge and development in new
and emerging areas underlying the R&D of special robots or active


Lecture-notes volumes (i.e. textbooks), which describe the fundamentals
in general fields governing special robots or active systems.


Review volumes (i.e. edited books), which address the latest
achievements in selected areas relevant to special robots or active

In addition, edited volumes of conference proceedings with significant
impact are encouraged as well. 

Interested authors are warmly invited to send the book proposals (using
the prescribed form
<http://www.worldscibooks.com/series/nfr_author_reply.doc> ) to the
Series Co-Editors at vuk at robot.imp.bg.ac.yu or mmxie at ntu.edu.sg
