* About the conference *

The 17th International Conference on Advanced Robotics, ICAR 2015 is
organized by Middle East Technical University in collaboration with Kadir
Has University. The conference will take place in Kadir Has University
campus in Istanbul, Turkey, on July 27-31, 2015.

Keeping up with the same spirit of innovation, ICAR brings high quality
papers, workshops and tutorials to the geographical areas where the larger
robotics conferences have not been organized yet. After the successful
conference in Montevideo, Uruguay (www.icar2013.org), the 17th ICAR will be
held in Istanbul, Turkey where “the east meets the west”. The conference is
organized by Middle East Technical University (METU) in collaboration with
Kadir Has University. The venue is Kadir Has Campus situated on the
historic peninsula along Halic bay (www.icar2015.org).

ICAR 2015 is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation
Society. The technical program of ICAR 2015 consists of plenary talks,
workshops and oral presentations. Accepted papers describe original work in
the form of theoretical modelling, design, experimental validation, or case
studies from all areas of robotics, focusing on emerging paradigms and
application areas including but not limited to:

Robotics Vision Adversarial Planning
Cognitive Robotics Robot Operating Systems
Robotics Architectures Simulation and Visualization
Mobile Robots Robot Swarms
Humanoid Robots Biologically-Inspired Robots
Self-Localization and Navigation Embedded and Mobile Hardware
Spatial Cognition Robotic Entertainment
Human-Robot Interaction Robot Competitions
Multi-Robot Systems Unmanned Aerial Robots
Search and Rescue Robots Underwater Robotic Systems
Learning and Adaptation Educational Robotics
Cooperation and Competition Rehabilitation Robotics
Dynamics and Control Immersive Robotics
