Second International Conference on Intelligent Robotics and Applications

16-18 December 2009


The market demands for skills, knowledge and personalities have  
positioned robotics to be one important field in both engineering and  
science. In order to meet these challenging demands, robotics has  
already seen its success in automating many industrial tasks in  
factories. And, a new era will come for us to see a greater success of  
robotics in non-industrial environments. In order to anticipate a  
wider deployment of intelligent and autonomous robots for tasks such  
as manufacturing, eldercare, homecare, edutainment, search and rescue,  
de-mining, surveillance, exploration, and security missions, it is  
necessary for us to push the frontier of robotics into a new  
dimension, in which motion and intelligence play equally important  

After the success of the inaugural conference, the purpose of the 2nd  
International Conference on Intelligent Robotics and Applications is  
to provide a venue where researchers, scientists, engineers and  
practitioners throughout the world can come together to present and  
discuss the latest achievement, future challenges and exciting  
applications of intelligent and autonomous robots. In order to benefit  
all participants, and also to maximize the interaction, the technical  
program of this conference is intentionally tailored to having  
relatively few parallel tracks. Each track will accommodate  
peer-reviewed articles dealing with theoretical, experimental and  
applicative works. In addition to the technical program, the  
conference will include several keynote speakers and a common poster  

The accepted and presented papers will be published in a proceedings  
book in the Springer?s lecture notes series on Artificial  
Intelligence, which is indexed by EI.
