>From Remotely-Controlled to Autonomous-Collaborative Robots 
a fullday IROS 2013 Workshop on November 3, 2013

To further enrich the workshop program we solicit short (2-4 pages) papers
to be presented as posters at the workshop. Depending on the quality of the
work, and on the schedule of the workshop, some contribution may be selected
for oral presentation. Contributions should be formatted according to the
IROS conference template (TEX or word). Papers should be submitted as pdf
files to:

The use of unmanned vehicles has been investigated mostly as single
autonomous and/or remotely piloted system. New developments are shifting the
line of research towards the cooperation of multiple heterogeneous vehicles.
The capabilities of heterogeneous robotic agents performing collaborative
tasks, by means of physical interaction, information sharing and/or dynamic
action planning, drastically increase the application spectrum that these
robotic vehicles can be considered for. As a consequent advantage of their
increasing autonomy, the human becomes capable to manage and direct a larger
number of robots. Nevertheless, to effectively utilize their real potentials
in realistic scenarios, deep understanding of the dynamic behaviors,
technological and morphological limitations, but also of the capabilities
and skills of both the individual agents and the collaborative group, is

This workshop aims at unifying and advancing the current research on agile
and dexterous unmanned vehicles, for their future development and effective
use as teams of collaborative robots in real applications. The workshop
wants to draw new research lines leading to the exploitation of teams of
intelligent swarms of heterogeneous robots capable of achieving
collaborative tasks. The role of the human as a remote supervisor or active
player in the scene will also be extensively discussed. 

List of Topics 
- Collaborative human robot scenarios
- Heterogeneity as a key feature for collaboration
- Dynamic planning of multi-agent cooperation
- From data sharing to physical interaction
- Human in the loop, Teleoperation and Autonomous Control 

Intended audience
The workshop aims at accommodating researchers in control of unmanned
vehicles, multi-agent systems, machine learning, teleoperation, robot-robot,
robot-environment and human-robot interaction.
