Dear Colleagues,


In the framework of the coming IROS 2009 conference a full-day 

workshop on "Biologically-Inspired Robots" is being organized on October
11th, 2009. 


For further details, please access:




Looking forward to received your contributions !



           IEEE/RSJ IROS 2009 Workshop

              October 11th, 2009


Full-Day Workshop on Biologically-Inspired Robots








In recent years, the benefits of "biologically inspired" approaches have

increasingly clear in engineering design. Living organisms are complex
systems exhibiting 

a range of desirable engineering characteristics that have proved difficult
to realize 

using traditional engineering methodologies. Research in this field has

fused techniques from sensor development, artificial intelligence,

simulation/modeling, and robotics. The goal of this workshop is to provide a
forum for 

the examination of the interplay between biological and artificial
(autonomous or 

semi-autonomous) systems, and present biology as a learning tool for novel
robotic paradigms.


Contributions are welcome on the following topics, but are by no means
limited to:


- Biologically-Inspired Robot Architectures 

- Biomimetic Perception, Action, and Behavior

- Learning and Adaptation;

- Evolutionary Robotics;

- Neuromechanical Systems.


The workshop will be of particular interest to robotic engineers and
researchers that work 

in the general areas of Biologically-Inspired Robotics. The state-of-art
will be analyzed and 

discussed from a perspective that could be interesting and useful for
researchers developing

new robotic machines, in their different forms.


Submission Deadline:

- July 14, 2009: Paper (or Extended Abstract) Submission deadline

- July 21, 2009: Notification of Acceptance/Rejection

- August 25, 2009: Camera-Ready Submission Deadline


Contributed extended abstracts: limited to 3000 characters, including title,
authors, affiliations.

Camera-Ready papers: Six pages in the standard IROS format are allowed for
each paper, including figures. 

A maximum of two additional pages is permitted. Prospective authors should
submit their contributions 

electronically in PDF format to the address
