Call For Papers - Special session on Personal Robotics

6th IEEE Int'l Joint Conference on Cybernetics and Intelligent Systems (CIS)
& Robotics, Automation and Mechatronics (RAM)

We would like to invite you to submit a paper for a special session on
Personal Robotics of 6th IEEE Int'l Joint Conference on
Cybernetics and Intelligent Systems (CIS) & Robotics, Automation and
Mechatronics (RAM). Personal robots are designed to work in human
environments for the benefit of individuals. These robots are envisioned to
do safe robotic manipulation for humans while in proximity or even in
contact with other humans. Personal robots can be used to automate home and
work tasks such as washing the dishes, doing the laundry, ironing and
folding clothes, and throwing the garbage.

This special session will focus on challenges of and advances towards
making personal robots an everyday reality. Papers are solicited on all
areas directly related to these topics, including but not limited to:

- Safe grasping and manipulation of everyday objects
- 3d scene understanding
- Human intention understanding
- Task and motion planning
- Human-robot cooperation
- Novel robot construction technologies for safety
- Economic impact of personal robotics
