Dear Colleague,

With support of NSF's CNS Division, Jeff Trinkle and Bruce Krogh are
organizing special session (http://www.ece.cmu.edu/~webk/IROS_CPS/) at
the IEEE/RSJ 2008 International Conference on Intelligent Robots and
Systems (IROS) in Nice, France on Sept 24 ( http://iros2008.inria.fr/
) to address the relationships between robotics and cyber-physical
systems research.  This session will include invited presentations by
Vijay Kumar, Daniela Rus, Peter Allen, John Hollerbach, and Takeo
Kanade, Michael Branicky from NSF/CNS (on the forthcoming NSF CPS
Initiative), and authors of contributed position papers (solicited
here).  Position papers from faculty members who are junior or from
under-re-presented groups are particularly encouraged.


If you would like to present your ideas, position papers (no longer
than three pages) are due September 5th.  See
http://www.ece.cmu.edu/~webk/IROS_CPS for more details.  Position
papers from faculty members who are junior or from under-re-presented
groups are particularly encouraged.

If you do not want to present your ideas in a brief talk, feel free to
attend the sessions and express your views during the panel
discussions.

Information about cyber-physical systems from an NSF summit help in
April 2008 can be found here:

We look forward to your participation.

Jeff Trinkle (RPI)
Bruce Krogh (CMU)
