Mon Feb 25 00:47:25 PST 2008
the deadline for submitting papers to the Tenth Int. Conference on
Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS-10) is approaching soon this
Wednesday February 27 (already extended)
IAS-10 will run on 23 - 25 July 2008 at the Kongresshaus, in Baden
Baden (Germany). You can dowload full information about the Conference
from its web page:
On behalf of Dr. Enrico Pagello, President of the IAS Society, the host
association of the IAS Conferences series (one of the oldest Robotics
Conference series), I would like to bring to your attention the
opportunity to contribute to IAS-10, the tenth adniversay, 22 years
later the first IAS held in Amsterdam in 1986.
During the IAS-9 Conference, held in Japan, we decided that since next
IAS-10 Conference, all participants to IAS Conferences will become
automatically members of the IAS-Society for a two years period, upon
having signed an application.
Thus, if you will participate to IAS-10, You will become a IAS-Society
member, since August 2008 till July 2010. In exchange, You will be
allowed to get a two years subscription to RAS from January 2009 till
December 2010, at a discounted price.
I have copied for your convenience at the end of this mail information
about both IAS-10 Conference, and IAS Society. More info can be
downloaded from our web page
Looking forward to meeting You in Baden-Baden!

*ABOUT the IAS-10 CONFERENCE
*The 10th International Conference on Intelligent Autonomous Systems
23 - 25 July 2008
Kongresshaus, Baden Baden, Germany
State-of-the-art autonomous systems are not limited anymore to
structured and fully defined environments. Current research covers
aerial, under water, and automotive robotics as well as systems that are
deployed to human-centered environments.
The 10th International Conference on Intelligent Autonomous Systems will
bring together leading researchers interested in all aspects of autonomy
and adaptivity of artificial systems.
In the spirit of the previous stimulating meetings, the goal of this
conference is to lay out new scientific ideas and design principles for
artificial systems able to act in real-world environments and thus
improve the quality of live in the human society.
The conference will be located in the beautiful southern-German City of

*ABOUT IAS-10 CONFERENCE
*Foundation of the IAS Society
The Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS) Society was founded on July
14th 1994. At the IAS-2 conference in Amsterdam a questionnaire was
distributed to get an indication on whether there is sufficient interest
to found an IAS Society. It was proposed that this Society should have
as primary aim the organization of the IAS conference every other year.
Alternatively, a workshop on a specific topic could be organized in
those years when no conference is being held. It was also suggested that
Society members would receive a newsletter informing them on the
activities of the Society. During the IAS-3 conference in Pittsburgh
(1993) the ideas were further discussed and it was decided to establish
the IAS Society. In the last thirteen years the ideas have been further
developed. It has been decided that the Society membership fee includes
a subscription to the Robotics and Autonomous Systems Journal. This
journal is from now onwards also publish a news page from the Society.
The IAS Society has a Governing Board consisting of:
* E. Pagello, President (The University of Padua, Italy)
* R. Dillman, Vice-President (University of Karlsruhe, Germany)
* T. Arai, Secretary (University of Tokyo, Japan)
* F.C.A. Groen, Treasurer (University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
* Maria Gini, (University of Minneapolis, USA)
* Hyungsuk Cho, (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology,
Society membership can be applied for by filling in the membership form.
As a member of the Society you will not only be informed on the
activities of the Society, but you will also have the possibility to
influence the composition of its Governing Board, and consequently the
content and place of the next IAS conference. In addition, members will
automatically receive a subscription to the Robotics and Autonomous
The next Conference is IAS-10 to be held in Baden baden, Germany, 23 -
25 July 2008
Members of the Honorary board of the Society are:
* L.O. Hertzberger, (University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
* T. Kanade, (Carnegie-Mellon University, USA)
* H. Inoue, (University of Tokyo, Japan)

Aims and Scope
Robotics and Autonomous Systems will carry
* articles describing fundamental developments in the field of
robotics, with special emphasis on autonomous systems. An important goal
of this journal is to extend the state of the art in both symbolic and
sensory based robot control and learning in the context of autonomous
* articles on the theoretical, computational and experimental
aspects of autonomous systems, or modules of such systems. Application
environments of interest include industrial, outdoor and outer space
where advanced robotic techniques are required for autonomous systems to
accomplish goals without human intervention; this includes robotics for
hazardous and hostile environments.
* brief reports on international meetings in the field, as well as
an occasional multi-author debate on current topics of interest.
The Robotics and Autonomous Systems Journal covers the following topics:
* symbol mediated robot behavior control;
* sensory mediated robot behavior control;
* active sensory processing and control;
* industrial applications of autonomous systems;
* sensor modeling and data interpretation; e.g., models and software
for sensor data integration, 3D scene analysis, environment description
and modeling, pattern recognition;
* robust techniques in AI and sensing; e.g., uncertainty modeling,
graceful degradation of systems;
* robot programming; e.g., on-line and off-line programming,
discrete event dynamical systems, fuzzy logic;
* CAD-based robotics; e.g., CAD-based vision, reverse engineering.
* robot simulation and visualization tools;
* tele-autonomous systems;
* micro electro-mechanical robots;
* robot control architectures;
* robot planning, adaptation and learning;
* autonomous systems.
