The 5th International Symposium on Resilient Control Systems (ISRCS)
will be held August 14-16, 2012 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Papers are being solicited for a special session on CO-ROBOTICS AND
TELE-PRESENCE in the context of resilient control systems.  The
deadline for submissions is April 2, 2012.

Because humans are inherently capable of tremendous levels of
resilience, system resilience can be greatly enhanced by the inclusion
of a human in the loop.  This may include humans sharing the operating
space with the robot (Co-Robotics), or humans involved in the control
and operation of a remote robotic system (Tele-Presence).  Examples in
co-robotics and tele-presence include resilience to unstructured
and/or dynamic operating environments, resilience to communication
latency or disruption, task variation, dynamic task assignment, etc.
This session solicits papers addressing these topics.

Topics for this session include, but are not limited to:
* Human detection and tracking algorithms; Shared workspaces;
Human-robot cooperative operation; Novel human/robot interaction
* Tele-presence systems; Resilient tele-presence systems; Hybrid
tele-presence/autonomous systems; Tele-presence augmentation via
computer intelligence, Multi-modal tele-presence interface
