SAC 2011

For the past twenty-five years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has
been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer
engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the
world. For the fourth year, the ACM SAC will have a specific track on
robotics. It aims to be a forum for researchers to share experiences,
expose issues, and discuss about this exciting research field.
Robotics is a multidisciplinary area of study that presents an enormous
commercial and research potential. While industrial robotics covers the
study, design, and use of robot systems for manufacturing, mobile robotics
concerns about developing systems that are capable of making decisions and
acting autonomously in real and unpredictable environments to accomplish
determined tasks. In the last decade, technological advances made possible
the development of very efficient sensors and electronic devices at
affordable prices. This fact has great impact on robotics research,
allowing the development of efficient and relatively cheap sensors and
computing devices. It also allows robots to accomplish more complex tasks,
posing new challenges to scientists and engineers. This track focuses on
all aspects of robotics, including related areas and applications.
