Call For Book 
Chapters
 


"Advances in Robotics and Virtual Reality"


To be published by Springer 
“Intelligent 
Systems Reference Library series” 



http://www.springer.com/series/8578


Editors: Tauseef 
Gulrez 
and Aboul-Ella Hassanien
 Deadline 
for chapter proposal: 29 September, 2010



Scope and Aim of the Book Chapters :This 
book is an effort to compile the current advances in robotics for 
manipulation 
and virtual reality as a non-destructive test-bed, and to stimulate a 
discussion 
on the future research directions in these fields. We expect that this 
book will 
succeed in invigorating research interests towards the development and 
applications of robotics and virtual reality for intelligent systems. 
Robotics 
may be exploited to assist human beings in number of ways from farming 
to 
avionics, bio-medicine, automotive, rehabilitation etc. However the 
non-destructive nature of virtual reality makes it a prime candidate for
 the 
testing of robotic techniques or train humans towards the operation of 
robots in 
a safe and danger free environment. The goal of this book “Advances in 
Robotics 
and Virtual Reality” is to exchange and stimulate research ideas to 
realize 
advancements in robotic and virtual reality systems together. Robotics 
and 
Virtual Reality are rapidly growing, interdisciplinary research areas 
lying at 
the intersection of computer science, mechatronics, control systems, 
electrical 
and mechanical engineering. Technologies, algorithms, system 
architectures, and 
applications will be presented and discussed on this book. The call for 
book 
chapters will invite authors of the following field to contribute their 
chapters 
towards this innovative and challenging book: We encourage participation
 from a 
wide range of disciplines including Robotics, Machine Learning, 
Artificial 
Intelligence, Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Human-Computer 
Interaction, Mobile Computing and Rehabilitation Robotics.
