Third International Workshop on
Standards and Common Platforms for Robotics (SCPR 2012)
in conjunction with SIMPAR 2012

Date: November 5th (Monday), 2012
Location: AIST Tsukuba central, Tsukuba, Japan

* Important Dates ** changed **
Sep. 30, 2010:	Paper submission deadline
Oct. 12, 2012:	Notification
Oct. 21, 2012:	Camera ready deadline

* Theme of the workshop
Application fields of robotics has been widely-spreading now, so that
required functionalities of robots becomes varied and complex. This is
even further accelerated with the recent emergence of multi-robot
coordination or networked robots that aim to enrich functionalities by
combining variations of sensors and actuators. Controlling robotic
systems as well as composing practical robotic services have never
been this complicated in the past and requires support with high
efficiency and reusability.
In order to handle such complexity, several activities for
standardizations and common platforms/libraries are attracting
researchers and developers. The goal of the Workshop is to provide a
forum for discussion and exchange of ideas among them on the topic
about common framework for robotics that enhance abilities of robotics
for complex applications.

* Topics
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Standardization on service robotics and related fields
- Interoperability with related systems
- Common platform/librarires for robots
- Middleware to integrate robotics and other software functionalities
- Evaluation and comparison of existing standards or platform/middleware
- Open issue on standardization
- Proposal of new items for standardization

* Intended audience
The workshop will be of particular interest to robotic engineers and
researchers that work in the general areas of service robots. It will
also be an opportunity to engineers and researchers working in the
field of sensor network, ubiquitous network or geographic information
system to learn the state of the art in service robotics and how these
systems are to be used in various robotic services, and at the same
time, to utilize robotic technology in their fields. Standardization
is especially important for the emerge of the new service robot
industry and therefore this workshop can attract the interest of the
general service robot community.

* Submission
Manuscripts must be in English, max. 12 pages in the LNCS format,
converted to PDF.
