CALL FOR PAPERS - IROS 2012 - International Workshop on " Assistance and Service Robotics in a Human Environment ", deadline June 25th.
that will be held in Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal, during October 7-12, 2012
This workshop aims to present research activities in the area of robotic assistance of human in different contexts of human life. The integral assistance systems are robotic modules and technological aids in general for personal assistance, such as robots, mobile bases, electric wheelchairs, soft robot manipulator arm. They can support disabled and elderly people with special needs in their living environment.
Intelligent Service Robotics cover a broad spectrum of research axis, from intelligent robots acting as a servant, secretary, or companion to intelligent robotic functions such as autonomous wheelchair navigation, embedded robotics, ambient intelligence, or intelligent space.
This workshop will focus on the assistance of human in terms of its mobility, its social interaction, as well as its everyday chores that are especially pertinent to the elderly.
Intended Audience concerns researchers and PhD students interested in assistive robotics, personal robotics, manipulation, Mobility aids, social interaction, teleoperated robots, Human-machine Interfaces for assistive robotics, Acceptance, Activity monitoring systems, Activity recognition, Elderly care assistive robots, Rehabilitation system, transfert machine, Sensor networks, Perception, Smart environments...
