Call for Papers ─ ICIRA 2009 Special Session:

Ubiquitous and cooperative robots in smart space

16 - 18 December, 2009, Orchard Hotel, Singapore


It seems quite likely that robots, which have been charged with
increasingly varied and difficult tasks, can be scattered everywhere
and become a ubiquitous part of our day-to-day lives in the future.
Smart space provides collaborative infrastructure for resources and
devices, improving the ability of multi-robot systems to achieve tasks
and goals. The goal of this special session is to bring together the
researchers from academia and industry as well as practitioners to
share ideas, problems and solutions relating to all aspects around
networked robots in smart space, such as ubiquitous robotics,
cooperative robotics, etc.

The topics of interest include, but not limited to:
1.    Networked robot systems
2.    Ubiquitous robotics
3.    Multi-robot cooperation
4.    Multi-robot communication
5.    Human robot interaction
6.    Robots in smart spaces
7.    Sensor networks for multi-robot system
8.    Multiple robot systems
9.    Networked robot platform
10.    Embedded intelligent system

Paper Submission Guidelines:
The final paper should not exceed 10 pages (Springer's Lecture Notes
in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) format), including references and
illustrations. Papers must be clearly presented in English, including
tables and figures, with PDF format. Papers will be selected based on
their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of
presentation. All accepted papers will be included in the ICIRA 2009
main conference proceedings, and at least one of the authors must
register and attend the workshop to present the work. The conference
proceedings will be published in the Springer's Lecture Notes in
Artificial Intelligence. All the accepted and published papers will be
indexed in EI. Also, we will invite the authors of papers with high
review scores to submit the extended versions of their papers, which
will be reviewed and published in special issues of SCI/SCIE journals,
such as:
    * Industrial Robot: An International Journal
    * Advanced Robotics
    * International Journal of Humanoid Robotics
