Dear All,


Apologize if you receive multiple copies for the below CFP.



Call For Papers  (*http://symp2015-iranopen.ir/en/*)



The 5th Joint Conference of AI & Robotics/ 7th Robocup Iranopen
International Symposium  will be held on April 12, 2015 in Qazvin in
conjunction with RoboCup IranOpen 2015. The RoboCup IranOpen is an annual
international robotics competition that has been held every year since 2005
and now attracts teams from many countries, including the USA, Japan, Korea,
Germany, The Netherlands, and Mexico. The Symposium was introduced later to
provide a parallel forum for presentation and discussion of scientific
contributions in all research and education sub-fields of Artificial
Intelligence and Robotics. Due to its interdisciplinary nature and intimate
connections of theory and practice, it offers an excellent venue to
introduce new techniques to/from various scientific disciplines and identify
important new trends and challenges in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.
Participants (speakers and attendees) in the Symposium are welcome to attend
and/or participate in the robot competition events, but they are not
required to do so.


We are pleased to invite submissions of papers presenting original
high-quality research in AI and Robotics. We welcome papers describing
applied and/or theoretical research, as well as innovative educational
experiences. Submitted papers can be in English or Farsi and are limited to
7 pages using the IEEE formatting for papers in English and the format
available in the Symposium's website for papers in Farsi. All papers must be
electronically submitted on the Symposium's website (
<http://symp2015-iranopen.ir/> http://symp2015-iranopen.ir). Submissions
must include the manuscript PDF file excluding the author(s) information
section attached and the source doc file of the entire manuscript including
the author(s) information section. All contributions will be blind-reviewed
by at least two reviewers. We are in the process of seeking final approval
to have the accepted papers indexed by IEEE Xplore.
