14th Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems (TAROS-13)

August 28-30 2013
St. Anne's College, Oxford, U.K.


Apologies for multiple posting.

Final Call for papers –

*Paper Submission Deadline Extended to 1st May 2013*

TAROS (Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems) is aimed at the presentation and
discussion of the latest results and methods in autonomous robotics
research and applications. TAROS offers a friendly environment for robotics
researchers and industry to take stock and plan future progress.

TAROS is a platform for robotics researchers with a wide range of interests
from the UK, Europe and worldwide. TAROS welcomes paper submissions on a
wide range of topics related to the principles and practice of robotics.

TAROS 2013 invites both full papers (up to 12 pages) and extended abstracts
(up to 2 pages). The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture
Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. All contributions will be
refereed. Full papers are invited from researchers at any stage in their
career but should present significant findings and advances in robotics
research; more preliminary work would be better suited to extended abstract
submission. Full papers will be accepted for either oral presentation
(single track) or poster presentation.

TAROS welcomes senior researchers and research students alike, and
specifically provides opportunities for research students and young
research scientists to present their work to the scientific community. As
in previous years, all accepted papers will be included in the printed
proceedings. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended
versions to a companion journal issue of Robotics and Autonomous Systems.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) are sponsoring an
invited public lecture, Springer have agreed to sponsor the best paper
prize, and the British Automation and Robot Association (BARA) are
sponsoring the TAROS-13 industry day (30th August) in conjunction with the
BARA Academic Forum for Robotics (AFR).

Keynote Speakers include:
Prof. John Hallam, The Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Institute, Odense, Denmark
Prof. Paul Newman, Head of Mobile Robotics Group, University of Oxford,
Oxford, UK.

Submissions of scientific papers are invited in any aspect of contemporary
robots research or application, but not limited to, the following topics
and related areas:

* Advanced applications of autonomous robots (industrial and research)
* Advanced materials and techniques
* Advanced medical robotics, robots for surgery, assistive robotics,
Service robotics
* Applications development, hardware issues, devices and techniques,
advanced sensors and actuators
* Autonomous assembly robotics, Autonomous vehicles
* Bio-mimetic and bio-inspired robotics, Bio-hybrid robotic systems,
Evolutionary robotics
* Cognitive robotics, Developmental robotics, Personal robotics, Robot
communication and language
* Ethical and societal issues in robotics, Robots in education, the arts
and entertainment
* Aerial robots (unmanned- and micro- air vehicles), Space and planetary
* Humanoid robotics, Human-Robot interaction and interfaces, Legged robots
* Safety, Verification and Validation for Robotic Applications
* Swarm robotics, Collective robots, Field robotics
* Learning and adaptation, Long-term interaction and operation, Intelligent
* Modelling and analysis of robot models, Modular reconfigurable robots
* Navigation, localization, map building and path planning, Analysis of
robot-environment interaction
* Robot autonomy including energy self-sufficiency, Robot control
architectures, Robot vision, sensing and perception
