                       Eurobot Conference 2011
     4th International Conference on Research and Education in Robotics
                         June 15-17, 2011
                       Prague, Czech Republic


In the past years, with the advances in microelectronics and digital
technology, robots became a platform for innovation. This gave thrust to
the development of new and fast robot systems. To further encourage the
research and cooperation in this area, this conference gathers
researchers and developers from academic fields and industries worldwide
to explore the state-of-the-art and at the same time to meet with young
robot builders who compete in the Eurobot Autonomous Robot Contest. 

AREAS OF INTEREST include, but are not limited to: 
* Research Track
-- Robot control and behaviour: localization, navigation, planning,
simulation, visualization, virtual reality modelling, evolutionary and
cognitive robotics.
-- Applications of autonomous intelligent robots: exploration robots,
service robots, robots for hazardous environments.
-- Perception, processing and action: sensors, vision, motion systems,
specialized peripherals.
* Education Track
-- Robotics at School and at University: curricula, methodology,
competences, outcomes.
-- Practical educational robotics activities: robot contests, workshops,
summer camps, robotic kits for education and research.
-- Practices in educational robot design: project management, team
development, funding, reusing parts and components.
-- Future pedagogical activities: innovative practices, acceptability
(humanoid teachers, etc.). 
* Special Eurobot Track
-- Presentation of projects and robots designed for Eurobot contest,
including previous editions: robot design, planning, team building and

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer.
