WS              :    Sep  22nd,  2008
IROS 2008       :    Sept 22-26, 2008


OBJECTIVES

The objective of this workshop is to highlight and discuss
existing examples of software frameworks combining autonomous
robot systems and cognition research. The WS is intended as a
platform for exchange and discussion, open for researchers as
well as hardware and software engineers.

We are pleased to have invited speakers sharing their experience
on this topic and presenting software systems which have been
developed out of long experience in the integration of heterogeneous
robot hardware and software for multi-disciplinary research projects.

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting recent work on
software frameworks able to combine high-level cognitive models and
heterogeneous robot system in a direct and robust manner. The
contribution must explicitly address at least one of the following
topics:
  * existing software frameworks able to integrate different paradigms
    of computational intelligence for autonomous robot control
  * general software architectures explicitly dealing with the
    integration of robot hardware and cognitive models
  * frameworks for sustainable software design for heterogeneous
    robot platforms
  * software frameworks providing implementations of cognitive models
    grounded in specific computational paradigms, but which are proven
    to be open for different robot platforms, i.e. open for different
    sensor and actuator systems
