Dear Colleagues,

please accept our apologies if you get multiple copies of this 
Call for Papers


International Conference on Research and Education in Robotics
May 27-30, 2010, Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland

In the past years, with the advances in microelectronics and digital 
technology, robots became a platform for innovation. This gave thrust to the 
development of new and fast robot systems. To further encourage the research 
and cooperation in this area, this conference aims to gather researchers and 
developers from academic fields and industries worldwide to explore the 
state-of-the-art and at the same time to meet with young robot builders who 
compete in the Eurobot Autonomous Robot Contest. 

Eurobot Conference 2010 will be held in conjunction with Eurobot Autonomous 
Robot Contest International Finale in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland. 
Conference participants will be able to freely visit the contest as 


* Paper submission: 	extedned to February 28, 2010
* Author notification: 	March 20, 2010
* Camera-ready paper submission: 	March 27, 2010
* Conference early registration: 	April 28, 2010
* Conference: 	May 27-30, 2010
* Eurobot contest Finals: 	May 27-30, 2010


* Research
- Robot control and behaviour: navigation, planning, simulation, 
vizualization, virtual reality modelling, evolutionary and cognitive 
- Applications of autonomous intelligent robots: exploration robots, service 
robots, robots for hazardous environments.
- Perception, processing and action: sensors, vision, motion systems, 
specialized peripherals.

* Education
- Robotics at School and at University: curricula, methodology, competences, 
- Practical educational robotics activities: robot contests, workshops, 
summer camps, robotic kits for education and research.
- Good practices in educational robot design: project management, team 
development, funding, reusing parts and components.
- Future pedagogical activities: acceptability of innovative practices 
(humanoid teachers, etc.). 

* Special Eurobot session
- Presentation of robots designed for Eurobot contest including previous 
editions: robot design, planning, team building and management.
