                     Call for Participation

               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

The program of SIMPAR 2010 has now been finalized

It consists of 4 invited talks, and 45 contributed papers
of which 28 will be presented as talks and 17 as posters
in the main single-track conference.
In addition 7 workshops and 2 tutorials will be held.
The proceedings book will appear soon in the Springer LNAI series.
