*** Call For Papers : RoSym Workshop -  MBE for Robotics  ***


1st Int'l International workshop on Model Based Engineering for Robotics 

      Oslo, Norway

      October 5, 2010



*** Extended Deadline: 30 july 2010.


In conjunction with MODELS 2010 Conference 


Supported by Artist NoE and OMG robotics TF




The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers, industrials and
tool developers to discuss on the usage of model-based engineering to
robotics application in different domains as well as major issues to use
this technology. A significant portion of time will be reserved for



The concrete topics of the workshop are: 

- Model-based design of robotics and autonomous systems, including dedicated
modelling language for robotics (which may be extensions of existing
languages as well)

- Safety, dependability and certification of robotics systems,

- Test, validation and simulation of the autonomous behaviour of the robot,

- Model-based quantitative analysis techniques, including performance
optimisation techniques for robotics

- Model-based processes and methods for robotics, including the
investigation and classification of activities adjusted to robotics

- Exploration and assessment of how existing MBE solutions have been used or
experimented in robotics

- Evaluation techniques and metrics for assessing effectiveness of MBE
robotics system prototype . 

- Examples of "early adopters" of MDE for robotics

- Unique challenges in robotics that MDE might help overcome

- MDE concepts and techniques that are particularly relevant to robotics
