RSS 2012 Workshop on Long Term Operations of Autonomous Robotic Systems 
in Changing Environments


July 11 - July 12, 2012
Robotics: Science and Systems Conference (RSS) 2012, University of 
Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia

     The reliable operation of autonomous systems over extended periods 
of time has been
gaining increasing attention in recent years. It is a key aspect in many 
research projects
and a fundamental requirement for any mobile robotic application in the 
industry. The aim of
this workshop is to bring together researchers from different fields and 
provide a place for
discussing the theoretical and practical challenges associated to the 
reliable operation of
autonomous systems over extended periods of time in changing 
environment. The workshop will
feature oral presentations and posters from contributed papers as well 
as invited talks from
experts in the field.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

     - Modeling changing environments and robotic systems
     - State estimation and planning in non-static environments
     - Lifelong learning
     - Efficient and reliable system design
     - Failure detection and recovery
     - Resource (e.g. energy) management

Important Dates:

     Paper submission:            June 1, 2012 *extended*;
     Acceptance notification:  June 15, 2012;


     We invite submissions of papers on the topic presenting new or 
ongoing research.
The authors of the accepted papers will have the opportunity to give a 
brief talk or present
a poster at the workshop. Presented material does not necessarily have 
to be previously
unpublished, as we believe the main role of the workshop is to 
bringtogether researchers
who have been addressing problems related todealing with clutter while 
manipulating, or navigating,and to encourage collaboration.

Papers will be reviewed by the program committee and should be submitted 
as PDF files
(6 pages) in RSS regular paper format.
