we are very proud and happy  to announce that the "Springer Handbook of
Robotics", edited by Bruno Siciliano and Oussama Khatib, has won two
PROSE Awards presented by the American Association of Publishers,
Professional and Scholarly Publishing Division. On February 5th, in
Washington, D.C., less than 9 months after its publication, the Handbook
was recognized with the PROSE Award in the Engineering & Technology
Category, as well as with the Award for Excellence in the overall
Physical Sciences & Mathematics Category
<http://www.proseawards.com/docs/2008%20PROSE%20Winners%20Press%20Releas
e.doc> . 

This awards recognize the efforts all the editors, part editors and
authors have devoted to this challenge, with their contributions,
commitment and passion and can be well seen as a tribute to Robotics as
an established scientific field.  The Handbook also was the Springer
bestselling title in engineering in 2008. 

With the very best wishes
