Due to multiple requests, the deadline for submissions to IROS2013 WS on
”Assistance and Service Robotics in a Human Environment” has been extended
to September 1st 2013 - http://www.lissi.fr/iros-ar

We apologize in advance if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.
New Deadline: September 1, 2013 – (extended)
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended version of
their papers to be published in a Special issue of the Elsevier journal
Robotics and Autonomous Systems journal – RAS

International Workshop on “Assistance and Service Robotics in a Human
Environment”, in conjunction with the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on
Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS'2013)

Workshop Website: http://www.lissi.fr/iros-ar

Assistive Robotics covers currently 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 spaces. The proposed
workshop focuses on Robotics for people assistance with a particular focus
on frail people. This major research issue will affect our lives in the near
future. The purpose of this workshop is to gather researchers from various
fields to discuss topics related to the challenging problems of assisting
people in their everyday life. Topics related to social interaction,
intelligent habitat, mobility assistance, healthcare and wellbeing will be
covered. Fundamental and technological research particularly related to
autonomous indoor vehicles, sensor and actuators networks, wearable and
ubiquitous technologies, and human-robot interaction, will be presented. The
objective of the workshop is to provide a review and challenges of the
relevant applications in Assistance and Service Robotics in a Human

As continuity of the first edition held at IROS’12, this workshop will
consist of four sessions with one keynote speaker for each:

•Session 1: Behavioral modeling and Human/Robot Interaction Analysis 
Keynote Speaker: Jesse HOEY, University of Waterloo, Canada

•Session 2: Navigation and manipulation in human populated environments 
Keynote Speaker: Kai O. ARRAS, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Germany

•Session 3: From sensors/actuators networks to cloud robotics
Speaker: Norihiro HAGITA, ATR Lab, Japan

•Session 4: Robotics for elderly and frail people 
Keynote Speaker: Takashi
YAMAMOTO, Toyota Motor Corporation, Japan

The solicited papers address particularly the following topics:
- Elderly care assistive robots
- Mobility aids for locomotion or navigation
- Automated manipulation systems
- Robot companion
- Social interaction
- Multi-modal human-machine interfaces for assistive robotics
- Interaction control of assistive robots
- Human Behavioral modeling, Human locomotion
- Activity monitoring systems, Activity recognition
- Rehabilitation system, transfert machine
- Wearable robots: Exoskeletons, actuated orthosis and prostheses 
- Mechatronic design and control of human movements
- Sensor networks, Actuator networks, Domotics, Distributive robotics
- Multi-modal perception, new sensors
- Cognitive ubirobots
- Context and Intention awareness 
- Ambient Intelligence and smart spaces
- Middleware and networked robots
- Cloud robotics
- Ethical issues for assistive robotics

Three to four submissions will be accepted per session for oral
presentations based on their quality, originality, and relevance to the
related session. A poster/demo session is also planned in the workshop
All accepted papers will be published on the workshop website. Authors of
selected papers will be asked to submit extended versions of their papers
for a special issue in Elsevier Robotics and Autonomous Systems journal
(RAS). Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication
anywhere else. Submission of papers and review process will be handled
through EasyChair conference management system.

Important dates:
New Papers submission deadline: September 1, 2013 – (extended)
Acceptance Notification: October 4, 2013 
Camera Ready deadline: October 11, 2013
Registration deadline: see IROS web site
Workshop date: November 7, 2013
