SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

Second Workshop on Cognitive Robotics Systems
Replicating Human Actions and Activities
Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013
IROS 2013 Tokyo, Japan
http://crs2013.org

Future robotic systems are expected to exhibit a level of cognition whereby
they can replicate human activities, taking into consideration their own
capabilities and limitations. In essence, robots are expected to be capable
of understanding, generalizing, empathizing and replicating human behavior
to achieve autonomous learning in the fullest sense of the word:
understanding through sensing and encoding, generalizing by extracting
higher-level understanding from low-level sensing data, empathizing by
developing a sense of context-dependent interpretation, and replicating to
reproduce the observed behavior even in novel contexts.

This workshop aims at stimulating discussion towards addressing domestic
and industrial requirements for cognitive robotics systems, with an
emphasis on reproducing human actions and activities. We warmly welcome
contributions in three formats: papers, extended abstracts and discussion
questions. Discussion questions are short questions that will be directed
to the panel of invited speakers during the workshop, to trigger
discussions.
