(apologies for multiple postings)

Dear All, ISR 2008 http://isr08.org/ will host a special session on the
evaluation metrics for walking and mobile autonomous machines,

with a focus on application and industrial needs (as well as  information
metrics and sensory motor coordination and such).

Technical and position papers from both industry and academia are welcome.
If you want to contribute please submit an abstract be email to the
organizers by June 15th.

This is a somehow hot topic as several related workshop are being organized
around the world (under the auspices of EURON Special Interest Group on Good
Experimental Methodology and Benchmarking in Robotics). There be aware that
there will be a similar one - more academic - in Coimbra at CLAWAR 2008 in
September (8-10) http://www.isr.uc.pt/clawar2008/. While two related will be
at RSS 08 and IROS 2008.

All the best


Call for Papers

Special Session on Evaluation Metrics For Walking and Mobile Autonomous

In this session will be collected a number of paper on the evaluation of
autonomous robotics systems focused on walking machines and other mobile
robots specific issues.

Focusing in particular on the metrics most fit for the evaluation of overall
robustness and energy efficiency, cognitive capabilities, degree of
autonomy. A specific attention will be paid to research results

 June 12: Abstract due
 June 15: Acceptance notification
