                  Call for Papers

           2nd International Conference on
          for AUTONOMOUS ROBOTS (SIMPAR 2010)

       Darmstadt (Germany), November 15-18, 2010


The objective of the International Conference on Simulation,
Modeling, and Programming for Autonomous Robots (SIMPAR) is
to offer a unique forum for the next generation of methodologies
and tools for robot development and to bring together researchers
from academia and industry to identify and solve the key issues
necessary to ease the development of increasingly complex robot software,
and to boost a smooth shifting of results from simulated to real 

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

     * 3D robot simulation
     * Reliability, scalability and validation of robot simulation
     * Simulated sensors and actuators
     * Offline simulation of robot design
     * Online simulation with realtime constraints
     * Simulation with software/hardware in the loop
     * Middleware for robotics
     * Modeling framework for robots and environments
     * Testing and validation of robot software
     * Standardization for robotic services
     * Communication infrastructures in distributed robotics
     * Interaction between sensor networks and robots
     * Human robot interaction and collaboration
     * Multirobot systems


Deadline for submission of papers:    June 1, 2010
Proposals for tutorials/workshops:    June 1, 2010
Notification of acceptance:          July 19, 2010
Submission of camera-ready papers: August 20, 2010

Conference proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCS/LNAI series.
