                     Final 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 applications.

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
