apologies if you received the following CFP more than once.

nternational Conference on Advanced Humanoid Robotics Research (ICAHRR-09)

Incheon, Korea
August 16-18, 2009

Call For Papers


The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers from all
areas of humanoid robotics to explore new frontiers for humanoid
robots, a very active and important research area within robotics. To
date most work in this area has focused on the generation
of basic walking gaits for flat terrains, but recent advances have led
to novel research opportunities and directions. While walking is
obviously a core competency for a humanoid robots, and a skill on
which more challenging behaviours are based, it is still a simple
task when compared to the full range of motions that a human can
easily generate and control. To develop humanoid robots that
can have a significant impact on our society, such as robotic nurses
or firemen, a humanoid robot must have numerous skills. These include
being able to actively balance on uneven surfaces (e.g., move through
grass as well as gravel roads), plan complex motions (e.g., pick up
dirty laundry from underneath the bed), and interact with other robots
or humans (e.g., move furniture). The conference provides researchers
with an opportunity to present active developments in these and
related areas, and to develop directions for future research.


We solicit original, unpublished research in all areas of humanoid
robotics, especially those outlined above. Major areas of interest

- Adaptive and Intelligent Control
- Trajectory Planning
- Walking Gait Generation
- Complex Motion Planning
- Human-Robot Interaction
- Simulation of Humanoid Robots
- Sensing and Perception of Unstructured Environments
- Computer Vision for Humanoid Robots
- Multi-Robot Coordination and Communication
- Machine Learning
- Applications for Humanoid Robots in Society
- Societal Issues related to Humanoid Robots

Proceedings will be published by Springer and exceptional papers will
be considered for publication in
The International Journal of Social Robotics.


Authors are invited to submit the complete manuscripts in PDF format.
Submissions should be as per the LaTex or Word templates.
Manuscripts are limited to six (6) A4 size papers. The front page must
contain the title of the paper, full name(s) and address(es) of
the author(s) and the appropriate academic field(s). The complete
mailing address(es), telephone number(s), FAX number(s) and
email address(es) must be provided on a separate sheet. All papers
will be refereed by the program committee.

Incheon is the 3rd largest city in Korea with population 2,700,000
people. It is the gateway city of Korea, with Incheon International
Airport and seaport located about 28km from Seoul. The city is near
the west sea and has many beautiful sites to visit. The Global Fair
and Festival 2009 will be held along with FIRA.  For more information
