First IEEE International Workshop on Semantic Robotics (SR 2017)

January 30 - February 1, 2017
Catamaran Resort Hotel & Spa
San Diego, CA, USA

** DEADLINE EXTENSION: December 8, 2016 **


Semantic Robotics aims to develop methods to build computer-based systems
by exploiting robotic capabilities, such as robot vision, learning,
language understanding, etc. Robotics and Automation involve designing and
implementing intelligent machines which can do work too dirty, too
dangerous, too precise or too tedious for human beings. Semantics is the
study of meaning instead, and within computer science it is closely related
to Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence. The main topic
of this workshop, ranging from mechatronics and control software to the
semantic web technologies and natural language dialogs, deals with the
field of Semantic Robotics. Furthermore, most mobile robotic systems use
internal representations of the gathered information that is not
intuitively understandable by human beings and that is inadequate for
learning from commonly available sources. The combination of object/place
classification and common-sense knowledge to semantic maps found its way
into indoor semantic mapping approaches, in order to improve human-robot
interaction. The aim is to pass complex task settings to the robot, so that
it guides the search for the solution itself. Thus, this workshop aims at
showing some concrete heterogeneous solutions applying semantic techniques
in robotics and automation, in order both to facilitate high-level
interfacing and/or to better support human-robot interaction. The workshop
seeks submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting novel
research results in all practical and theoretical aspects of Semantic

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   * Semantic Maps for Robotics
   * Semantic Robot Vision
   * Artificial Intelligence
   * Natural Language Processing
   * Robotics and Automation Software
   * Robot Navigation Framework
   * Semantic Segmentation
   * Object Recognition
