a forum balanced between an academic conference and an exhibition,
while presentations are selected through IEEE's rigorous peer-review
process.

The conference theme this year will be new technologies in robotics
and automation and their practical applications. While papers are
solicited in all related areas of robotics and automation, the
conference tracks include::

Robot Applications
   -Military
   -Medical
   -Consumer
   -Industrial
   -Service

Robot Technologies
   -Sensing
   -Actuation
   -Computation
   -Power
   -Communication

Prospective authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of their
proposed contributions electronically in PDF or MS Word format. Detailed
instructions for abstract submission can be found on the conference
website. Sponsorship, exhibit and demonstration opportunities are
available. Please see the conference website for further details.
