CALL FOR PAPERS

WORKSHOP ON ROBOT SIMULATORS: AVAILABLE SOFTWARE, SCIENTIFIC
APPLICATTIONS AND FUTURE

http://www.robot.uji.es/research/events/iros08/

To be held at  2008 IEEE/RSJ INT. CONFERENCE ON INTELLIGENT ROBOTS AND
SYSTEMS (IROS 2008)

26 September 2008, Nice, France

SCOPE:

The main goal of this workshop is to bootstrapping a discussion between
researchers on the current state and potential uses of robot simulators
in the scientific research on robotics. The workshop will be organized
around two main aspects. The first one, a review of currently available
simulator software. This will consider the software to solve the
relevant parts of a simulation: physic engines, render engines,
collision detection and contact modeling, and sensor simulation. The
second aspect will rely on the presentation and description of
innovative simulation uses in the robotics community. This part is
intended to allow assistants to describe how they are using simulators
in their research. There will also place to propose and discuss about
future potential applications.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Robot simulators.
- Simulators development
- Sensor simulation applied to robotics.
- Collision detection and contact modeling.
- Simulation applied to robot grasping and manipulation.

SUBMISSION

Authors willing to participate and present their current work are
invited to submit contributions. Initial submission can consist in a 2
pages abstract or in 8 pages full paper. Submission must be sent in PDF
format to Antonio.Morales at uji.es. Detailed information about the format
of the papers can be found at IROS site (http://iros2008.inria.fr).
