CALL FOR PAPERS
IROS'10 Workshop on Robots and Sensors integration in future rescue
INformation system (ROSIN'10)

October 2010, Tapei, Taiwan
Web site : http://www.doesnotunderstand.org/wikka.php?wakka=ROSIN10

======================================================================================

This full-day workshop will take place in October 2010 in Taipei (台北)
Taiwan, during the 2010 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on
Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS'10).

Motivation and objectives

Intelligent rescue systems including ITC and robotics technology have
been proposed to mitigate disasters, especially in Japan after the
1995 Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake. Reports on urban emergency relief point
out that the most serious difficulty is the delay of communication of
reliable information between the authorities in charge, especially
district authorities, which are supposed to coordinate efforts in
real-time and make requests for support at the city level. In order to
do that, the infrastructure of information systems during disasters
plays an important role. Future rescue information systems may involve
a complex mixture of humans performing high level decision-making,
intelligent agents coordinating the response, sensors networks
providing real-time observations and robots undertaking physical tasks
in large-scale environments with the possibility of taking part in the
process of data collection. However, the considered environments are
prone to uncertainty, ambiguity and incompleteness given their dynamic
and evolving nature.

The aims of the workshop are:
- To present both state-of-the-art results and work in progress in the
area of distributed sensing in the context of robotic and sensor
networks integration,
- To foster multi-disciplinary collaborations between researchers
working on different topics: WSN (Wireless Sensors Network), robotic,
disaster management, etc ... thus forming a base for future
collaboration.

This workshop will focus on the tight integration of sensors-robots
and information systems during the rescue process. Topics that are of
special interest include but are not limited to:
- Distributed information gathering with sensors and robots,
- Information systems for disaster management including Spatial
Decision Support Systems (SDDS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
and participatory GIS
- GIS-based approaches for controlling robots, Advanced data
management with mobile robots and sensors, GIS spatial representation
for robotic systems,
- Trust enhancement infrastructure for information gathering during a
disaster, Co-design of communication and control protocols for
robot-sensor interaction,
- Role of robots and sensors in disaster and emergency management processes.

The primary audience of the proposed workshop is intended to be
researchers and practioners both from academia and industry with an
interest on integration robots, sensors and information systems in the
context of disaster or emergency management. In addition, researchers
and practitioners from related communities (disaster management, SDDS,
GIS) will find this workshop quite useful.
