Call for Papers
URAI 2011 (The 8th International Conference on Ubiquitous Robots and Ambient Intelligence; URAI is pronounced “you-rì”), hosted by Korea Robotics Society (KROS,www.kros.org) will be held on November 23-26, 2011 at Songdo ConventiA (www.songdoconvensia.com), Incheon, Korea (near Incheon International Airport). URAI 2011 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, the Robotics Society of Japan (RSJ), the Robotics Society of Taiwan (RST), and IEEE Seoul Section. The aim of this conference is to bring together academics, researchers, engineers, and students worldwide to discuss the state-of-the-art technology and to present recent works related to the various aspects of all kinds of robots. Year 2011 is the VisitKorea Year by the Korean Government, and various cultural/social events and many benefits are prepared in Korea. We are pleased to invite you to submit papers, propose organized sessions, attend URAI 2011, and also enjoy Korea.
The topics of URAI 2011 include, but are not limited to,
Ubiquitous robots, Ambient intelligence, Network-based robotics, Human-robot interaction, Robot vision and audition, Sensor networks and sensor fusion, Robotic agents, Robot intelligence and learning, Intelligent space/environment technologies, Distributed robotics, Navigation and localization, Robot kinematics and dynamics, Robot control, Robotic mechanism and design, Control architecture and middleware, Haptics and teleoperation, Sensors and actuators, Medical/Rehabilitation robotics, Humanoid robots, Field robots, Service robots, Industrial robots, Biorobotics, Biomimetics, etc.
Important Dates:
Jun. 15, 2011 : Submission of organized session proposals
Jun. 30, 2011 : Submission of papers
July 31, 2011 : Proposals for tutorials/workshops
