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.

Abstract:
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:
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
methods;
* Tele-presence systems; Resilient tele-presence systems; Hybrid
tele-presence/autonomous systems; Tele-presence augmentation via
computer intelligence, Multi-modal tele-presence interface
