Call for participation and Call for videos

*ECSIS Symposium on Learning and Adaptive Behavior in Robotic Systems, 
LAB-RS 2008*
Edinburgh, Scotland, UK, August 6-8, 2008
See program at
The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers from academia 
and industry to report on new concepts, laboratory demonstrations, and 
fielded robotic systems that exhibit learning and adaptive behaviors.// 
/The symposium will attempt to roadmap future directions for development 
of robotic systems with capabilities comparable to those of biological 
*Keynote Speakers *
Dr. Paul S. Schenker, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, USA
/Space Robotics: Challenges to Learning and Adaptive Systems/

Dr. Dario Floreano, Laboratory of Intelligent Systems (LIS), EPFL, 
/How to Evolve Controllers for Truly Cooperative Robots/

*Video Competition*: Submission for videos will remain open till July 
31, 2008*.* Video submissions do not require LAB-RS 
registration/participation.Videos previously presented elsewhere are 
acceptable; there will be no distribution, only screening during the
