Expanded papers selected from the RSS 2014 Workshop on Robotics Methods 
for Structural and Dynamic Modeling of Molecular Systems (RMMS) 
http://www.cs.unm.edu/amprg/rss14workshop/ held in Berkeley will appear 
as a special issue of Robotica in (expected) Summer 2015.

We are opening this special issue to submissions that were not presented 
at the RMMS Workshop.

Papers should be submitted via the online submission system
and `RMMS2014' should be included as a keyword during the 
submission/review process.

If you are interested, please email a short abstract of your planned 
submission to rmms14 at cs.unm.edu by October 10th, 11:59pm EST

and follow up with full papers through the online submission system no
later than November 10th, 11:59pm EST.

Robotica is a forum for the multidisciplinary subject of robotics and 
encourages developments, applications and research in this important 
field of automation and robotics with regard to industry, health, 
education and economic and social aspects of relevance. The RMMS special 
issue of Robotica seeks to stimulate, and advance the exchange of, 
research ideas regarding the prediction of molecular structures, 
simulation of molecular motions, and analysis of 
structure-dynamics-function relationships between the sub-communities of 
robotics, AI, and molecular modeling.  Papers on adaptations and 
applications of methods inspired by robotics and AI to characterize 
biomolecular structure, motion, dynamics, complexation, and aggregation 
are encouraged for submission.

Topics of interest for the special issue include but are not limited to:
1.  Modeling equilibrium structural states
2.  Modeling structural fluctuations and large-scale motions
3.  Predicting thermodynamics and kinetics properties
4.  Simulating protein and RNA folding
5.  Reconstructing molecular energy landscapes
6.  Modeling molecular docking and aggregation
7.  Simulating ligand diffusion
8.  Interactive haptic-based molecular simulations
9.  Computational and theoretical methods for biomolecular structure
