Call for Papers
Special Session on Artificial Life and Computational Intelligence in Robotics
Hosted within ACALCI2015, Newcastle, Australia, Feb. 5-7, 2014

Papers Due: September 27, 2014


Worldwide there is growing investment in the area of robotics with increasing interest in autonomous robots. The task to develop autonomous robots and employ them in real world applications requires techniques that go beyond traditional artificial intelligence, robot control and automation. It involves a wide interdisciplinary spectrum of techniques from machine learning, cognitive neuroscience, computer vision, advanced control, human-robot interaction, affective computing, optimisation, software engineering and associated areas. This special session aims at presenting and discussing new inspiring research that contributes to a modern picture of the interdisciplinary research field of robotics.
We invite submissions of original, previously unpublished papers with topics on, but not limited to the following:

  *   Autonomous robots and vehicles
  *   Evolutionary algorithms in robotics
  *   Humanoid robots

  *   Multi-agent systems
  *   Robot learning
  *   Companion- and nursebots
  *   Human-robot interaction
  *   Soccer playing robots
  *   Robot dance
  *   Knowledge representation and memory in robotics
  *   Ethical and philosophical questions of future robots
  *   Emotional robots and affective computing
  *   Robot vision systems

Important Dates
Full Paper Submission: September 27, 2014
Acceptance Notification: October 27, 2014
Camera-ready Papers: November 15, 2014

For authors who want to submit for the special session, please include a note on the title page that their paper is for the special session on
"Artificial Life and Computational Intelligence in Robotics".
Submitted papers can have 6-14 pages in LNCS format and have to follow the ACALCI regulations, registration and format that is available from the ACALCI webpage http://www.newcastle.edu.au/ACALCI2015<http://newcastle.edu.au/ACALCI2015>

All papers have to be submitted via the central ACALCI 2015 EasyChair submission system. It can be accessed from the ACACI 2015 webpage from the paper submission link at

All accepted papers that are presented at the conference would be published in the ACALCI 2015 proceedings as a LNAI volume by Springer-Verlag. The LNAI volumes are indexed by the following services: Scopus, Zentralblatt MATH, IO-Port, MathSciNet, ACM Digital Library, dblp, EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), and the ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S), included in ISI Web of Science.
