Call for Participation

The 6th Edition of the Full Day Workshop on 
"Software Development and Integration in Robotics (SDIR-VI)"

Workshop Agenda: http://robotics.unibg.it/tcsoft/sdir2011/

ICRA 2011, Shanghai, China,
Monday May 9, 2011, 09:00 - 17:00
Shanghai International Convention Center, Room: 3D

The sixth edition of the ICRA SDIR workshop reflects an increased 
awareness within the Robotics community for the importance of adopting 
best practice software engineering techniques and approaches in the 
development of robotics systems. In software-intensive domains like 
robotics, systematic engineering requires the step from code-driven to 
model-driven software development. Software models can represent 
relevant properties of robotic resources, their usage constraints, and 
their mutual dependencies and enable the development of tools that 
support the system engineering process. Software models are 
computational, that is they can be executed, simulate the system 
evolution and even represent the system evolution at run-time. They also 
allow to separate robotics knowledge from short-cycled implementation 
technologies. Since recently, tools like Eclipse are matured enough to 
be applied in and tailored to robotics. Design patterns, best practices, 
sophisticated and optimized software structures and approved solutions 
can be made available to experts in robotics within highly optimized 
code generators.

The tangible results of the workshop will be a practical program of 
research and public relations focused on the way that software 
development techniques are actually practiced in Robotics and a roadmap 
that indicates the strategic directions to pursue the synergy between 
Robotics and Software Engineering.
