Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to participate in our track on:
*‘Optimization-based methods for planning and control of 
environment-aware robotic systems’*.
The track will be organized as part of the 26th International Conference on Robotics in Alpe-Adria-Danube Region (RAAD), June 21-23, 2017, Torino, Italy.

We welcome prospective participants to submit full papers to be presented
as oral presentations.*The tentative deadline for submission of full papers is January 10, 2017*. The paper length is limited to 8 pages in the (small)
Springer book style. Each paper will receive a minimum of two reviews.
Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance to the track
topics, contributions, technical clarity, and presentation. Accepted papers
require that at least one of the authors register to the RAAD 2017
conference. Accepted papers will be published either as an indexed Springer
book or in IEEE Xplore.

*Since the deadline is rather soon, we shall allow for some flexibility*.

Important Dates:
Submission deadline for papers: January 10, 2017
Notification of acceptance: February 20, 2017

Topics of Interest:
• optimal control, learning and movement primitives for humanoid robots
• model-based optimization of robotic systems with contacts
• efficient modeling of intermittent contacts
• push recovery in humans and humanoid robots
• stability of humanoid locomotion
• planning environment-aware locomotion and loco-manipulation actions
• planning environment-aware manipulation actions
• challenging environment-aware applications

Submission: details can be found on the website:www.polito.it/RAAD2017

Do not forget to recommend your paper for a Track 2 ("Optimization-based methods for planning and control of environment-aware manipulation"), by selecting the corresponding "label" during the Submission procedure.

Looking forward to seeing you soon.
