CALL FOR PAPERS
IEEE International Workshop on Advanced Robotics and its Social Impacts (ARSO 2017)
March 8-10, 2017 - Austin, Texas
Submission deadline: October 7, 2016
The IEEE Workshop on Advanced Robotics and its Social Impacts (ARSO) will take place in Austin, Texas, during March 8-10, 2017. ARSO is a single track workshop featuring talks in diverse scientific, health, industrial, social, innovation, security areas and more. The series started in Nagoya in 2005, and traveled through Beijing (2006), Hsinchu (2007), Taipei (2008), Tokyo (2009), Seoul (2010), Half Moon Bay, CA (2011), Munich (2012), Tokyo (2013), Evanston (2014), Lyon (2015), and Shanghai (2016). Participants are world class robotics research scientists, social, economic, legal and technology thinkers, innovators, investors and government officials. ARSO’s topics range from traditional robotics technologies, innovation, socio-economic aspects, but also psychological and philosophical aspects of Human Robot Interaction.
The workshop will overlap with the famed South by Southwest (SXSW 2017 https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.sxsw.com_&d=DQIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=FXa5TAf8m9q1w8WEC9upoAxmWTHOk_OttiORwAKDyaM&s=UuoVkCvQp8jl8EUjUPpU1P5cib4bl0yKsSJidCpwU40&e= ) conference in Austin, featuring a powerful interactive festival with cutting-edge talks in topics highly connected to ARSO. A joint ARSO-SXSW panel is currently being organized as part of both events on Friday March 10.
We invite papers about all cutting-edge technology, including their business opportunities, as well as their present and potential impacts on the human world.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
Robots and our human societies
Ethical issues of social robots
Macroeconomic effects of robotics
Industrial and manufacturing trends in robotics
Robotic innovation and startups
Autonomous systems and drones
Robots for space exploration
Robotics in defense
Robotics in the oil and gas industry
Health and rehabilitation robotics
Robot assistants and artificial life systems
Design and control of mobile robots
Networked robotic systems
Embodied cognitive systems
Prospective authors should submit papers electronically in PDF format via PaperPlaza. Six pages in standard IEEE format are allowed for each paper. Up to two additional pages are permitted with an extra charge. Authors are encouraged to mention if they prefer an oral or a poster presentation (including a 3 min teaser in the plenary session).
Organized Session Submission
We encourage proposals for organized sessions to be held during the conference. Session descriptions should fit on two pages submitted through paperplaza. The format, and content of the session can be quite open as long as it aligns with ARSO interests.
