----------------------------------------------

Dear all,

There are just a few days left to IROS and
the IROS workshop on
Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking for Intelligent Robots and
Systems with Cognitive and Autonomy Capabilities to be held in Taipei,
Taiwan  on October 22nd during IROS 2010
(October 18-22 2010), http://www.iros2010.org.tw/about.php
You are warmly invited to attend and contribute actively. The program
is here:http://www.heronrobots.com/EuronGEMSig/GEMSIGIROS10Program.html
and here below.
The MAIN PURPOSE  of this workshop is to contribute to the progress of
performance evaluation and benchmarking, focusing in intelligent
robots and systems,  including those with some high level cognitive
capabilities and some degree of autonomy, by providing a forum for
participants to exchange their on-going work and ideas in this regard.
A purpose of the workshop is IN PARTICULAR to achieve better and
agreed ideas on how to define and measures system level
characteristics like ‘autonomy’, ‘cognition’ and ‘intelligence’.
We will also give you a short review on what's going on.
The papers will be included in the IROS 2010 workshop/tutorial DVD.

Intended Audience

The proposed workshop is the fifth in the series after four successful
and well attended workshops in IROS’06 to IROS’09, while related
workshops have been organized at the RSS and ICRA. It is part of a
general effort to improve the effectiveness of robotics research
carried on within the Euron network an at US NIST. The primary
audience of the proposed workshop is intended to be researchers and
practitioners both from academia and industry with an interest in
cognitive robotics and how these approaches can be utilized in
generating intelligent behaviors amidst uncertainty for robots in the
service and commercial sectors and robotics technology to find new
applications in everyday life. The workshop is also aimed at
benchmarking and objectively evaluating performance of such robots.
Accordingly, it is envisioned to be useful for anyone who has an
interest in quantitative performance evaluation of robots and/or robot
algorithms.
