Track: Intelligent Robotic Systems (ROBOT)

The 24th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SIGAPP)
March 8 - 12, 2009, Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa
Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

For the past twenty-three years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing 
has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, 
computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from 
around the world. For the second year, the ACM SAC will have a specific 
track on robotics. It aims to be a forum for researchers to share 
experiences, expose issues, and discuss about this exciting research field.

Robotics is a multidisciplinary area of study that presents an enormous 
commercial and research potential. While industrial robotics covers the 
study, design, and use of robot systems for manufacturing, mobile 
robotics concerns about developing systems that are capable of making 
decisions and acting autonomously in real and unpredictable environments 
to accomplish determined tasks. In the last decade, technological 
advances made possible the development of very efficient sensors and 
electronic devices at affordable prices. This fact has great impact on 
robotics research, allowing the development of efficient and relatively 
cheap sensors and computing devices. It also allows robots to accomplish 
more complex tasks, posing new challenges to scientists and engineers. 
This track focuses on all aspects of robotics, including related areas 
and applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Rehabilitation Robotics
Humanoid Robotics
Underwater Robots
Search and Rescue Robots
Entertainment Robots
Multi-robot Coordination
Active Perception and Vision
Coverage and Deployment
Autonomous systems
Localization and Mapping
Evolutionary Robotics
Control Architectures and Programming
Bio-Inspired Robots
