Scope and Topics

Robotic Computing (RC) addresses the synergetic interaction of computing 
technologies and robotic technologies. The synergy between Robotics and 
Computer Science is both realistic and strategic. Their mutual benefit 
is to make it possible to build and evolve new robotic systems, to 
reduce their development cost, and to enhance their quality.

The First IEEE International Conference on Robotic Computing (IRC 2017) 
is inviting high quality research papers addressing the synergies 
between Computer Science and Robotics in all applications.

Topics related to Computer Science
- Formal methods for analysis and design
- Software architectures
- Middleware infrastructures
- Model-driven engineering
- Component-based engineering
- Software product line engineering
- Data, ontology, and knowledge engineering
- Autonomic computing
- Natural language understanding
- Service oriented computing
- Cloud computing
- Semantic computing
- Multimedia computing
- Internet of Things
- Virtual reality
- Computer security
- Software development
- Software fault tools and analysis

Topics related to Robotics
- RAMS abilities of robotic systems
- Hardware modeling and abstraction
- Resource awareness
- Sensor fusion, integration
- Place recognition, localization

The Conference is also inviting innovative contributions that discuss 
the future of the field including, but not limited  to:
- What are the challenges to robotic computing?
- What are the main unresolved theoretical and/or methodological 
- What are the stakeholders’ (e.g., industries, public bodies, 
educators) research and development problems?
- What can be learned from other disciplines and what can they learn 
from robotic computing?
- What is the real world experience of Robotic Computing over the past 
10 years, and how might it continue to evolve as we look toward the next 

Papers Submission

Authors are invited to submit an 8-page technical paper manuscript in
