Publication in IEEE Xplore
===========================================================

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into
IEEE Xplore. The authors of a selection of papers
will be invited to submit their manuscript to a special
issue of the Advanced Robotics Journal of the Robotics
Society of Japan.


===========================================================
Paper Format
