LAB-RS Aim and scope
     Learning and adaptive behaviors are key to robotics system  
operation in real world environments.
While there have been important developments at the theoretical level  
and in simulations or laboratory
environments, the transfer of these methods onto real-world platforms  
has been limited.
This symposium aims to provide a forum for advancement of learning  
and adaptation in robotics systems
to high capability levels comparable to those of biological systems.  
It seeks reports on new concepts,
laboratory demonstrations, and fielded robotic systems that exhibit  
learning and adaptive behaviors.
The focus of the 2009 symposium is learning and adaptive behavior in  
robots working within environments
in close proximity to other robots and humans.

LAB-RS  2009 will take place in Iasi, Romania. The capital of the  
medieval principality of Moldavia, Iasi
is a city immersed in history and culture, yet trendy and vibrant due  
to the tens of thousands of university
students that live in Romania’s oldest - and second largest  - 
university city.  The social program will include
a tour to the famous painted monasteries of Northern Moldavia and  
Iasi sightseeing.
