Dear Colleagues,

Title: Call for papers: IEEE international Conference on Humanoid  
Robot, 2008(Humanoids2008)

Humanoid is the ultimate form of robot in the future. Even though  
there has been a great deal of research and development in this area  
last decade many people agree that the humanoid robot is still far  
behind to be social entities, agents or actors as a part of human’s  
life environment. Humanoids2008(www.humanoids2008.org), the 7th  
conference follows Pittsburg, USA(2007) and Genoa, Italy(2006), is  
IEEE Robot and Systems(RAS) sponsored conference focus on humanoid  
robot to share the experience and research activities to achieve our  
common goal, creation of humanoids. The conference will be held at  
Hotel Riviera(www.hotelriviera.co.kr) near KAIST, Daejon, Korea from  
1st to 3rd December, 2008.

The organizing committee of Humanoids2008 would like to invite  
submissions of research papers which report latest work exploring  
themes of humanoid robot and its related areas. Researches in humanoid  
robot are not restricted only in full body humanoid robots but they  
are spanned from basic biped walking, motion planning, software/ 
hardware structures and advanced robot components to cognition,  
perception, human-robot interaction, social and ethical issues.

Suggested topics of interest include:
    - Design and control of full-body humanoid robots
    - Motion planning
    - Cognition, perception and learning for humanoid robots
    - Advanced components for humanoid robots
- Sub-parts, e.g. hands, arms, legs and etc., for humanoid robots
    - Humanoid robot platforms for applications
    - Anthropomorphism in humanoid robotics
    - Software and hardware architecture and system integration
    - Human-humanoid interaction
    - Planning, localization and navigation
- Development tools for humanoid robots
But the authors area not restricted in the topics listed above.

The important dates involved are:-
1st July - Deadline for submission of full papers
20th September - Notification of acceptance + feedback of reviews
15th October - Deadline for camera ready copies
1st December - Workshop/Tutorial for Humanoids2008
2nd -3rd December - Humanoids2008

Submission of full papers should be made via internet. Please find the  
way for on-line paper submission at author area of http://www.humanoids2008.org
