CFP Full version: 


Robots are a key element to achieve manufacturing competitiveness, especially if they are able to collaborate with humans in a shared workspace in the shop-floor, creating a co-working partnership. The paradigm for robot usage has changed from an idea in which robots work with complete autonomy to a scenario in which robots collaborate with humans. This means taking the best of each partner, human and robot, by exploring the cognitive and dexterity capabilities of humans (focus on value-added tasks) and the capacity of robots to produce repetitive work and provide assistance. Humans should be able to cognitively and physically interact with robots using gestures, touch commands and task demonstration. Robots should be able to navigate autonomously in the factory floor to pick up the required parts and tools and prepare kits. All the above has to consider safety issues for collaborative robotics.

== Proceedings == 

This special session aims to brought together researchers from various sectors (academia, government, and industry). Academicians, researchers, students, and industry professionals had the opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas, enlarge networks, and present recent progress and achievements in the emerging areas of application of collaborative robots in manufacturing. All the instructions for paper submission are included in the conference website https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__iecon2016.com_&d=CwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=j1rC2CAnWp10vxjcoT6b_ddqkwoGLXICK4nXFTH85C0&s=N7TQAmUTz_sN3z5rnKzBsPDvcVx4SqCkdITibpylqJ0&e= . The papers accepted for presentation in the special session will appear in IEEEXplore.
