Call for PapersINTELLIGENT SERVICE ROBOTICSSpecial Issue on Multi-scale
Manipulation Toward Robotic Manufacturing TechnologiesMicro-nanorobotics for
robotic manufacturing faces tough challenges from uncertain interaction
forces, environmental complexities and variability, to potential operational
failures. These challenges render current efforts based on automatic control
ineffective, and the level of automation is so far rather limited, not much
beyond telemanipulation and basic visual servoing. Machine learning has been
proven very promising in increasing the autonomy of macro robotic systems.
Due to the low reliability of models at micro-nanoscale, machine learning
becomes an especially attractive approach. Nano/micro manipulation can be
benefitted from recent developments in macro-scale manipulation. At the same
time, handling problems in nano/micro scale particles would inspire
researchers in macro-manipulation for further innovation in their
methodologies. This issue will be unique in bringing new ideas in both micro
and macro scale manipulation and build original cooperation between
micro-nanorobotics and manufacturing or machine learning fields.The central
theme of the Special Issue is on recent advances in Multi-scale Manipulation
Toward Robotic Manufacturing Technologies and will capture the surge of
interest in the application of machine learning technologies to manipulation
in multi-scale. We plan to welcome original, significant and visionary
papers describing scientific methods and technologies that improve the
efficiency of manipulation in multi-scale. The content could also present
surveys and reviews that summarize state-of-the-art practices in this arena.
Special attention will be paid to papers focusing on microassembly of
microdevices, contactless manipulation, nanoparticle applications, dexterous
handling in multiple scales, machine learning for manipulation, active
touch, micro-manipulation: transportation and assembly, intention prediction
approaches to interact naturally with the microworld.  Submissions of
scientific results from experts in academia and industry worldwide will be
strongly encouraged.  Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:•
Micro-nanorobotics•	Nano/micro particle manufacturing•	Machine learning for
manipulation•	Micro/macro manipulation	•	Sensing for manipulation•
