                   *** IEEE IRC 2018 Call for Papers ***
 The Second IEEE International Conference on Robotic Computing
                   The Hills Hotel, Laguna Hills, CA, USA
                          January 31 - February 2, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

We invite papers submission for the IEEE IRC 2018 Conference, which will take place on January 31 - February 2, 2018, in Laguna Hills, CA, USA.


The boundaries between Computer Science and Robotics are continuing to be softened. On one hand computers are continuing to be humanized and a large number of cyber-physical systems are being developed to act upon the physical world. On the other hand the robotic community is looking into the robots of the 21st century that are versatile computing machines with high social impact potential, such as enhance transportation safety, reduce agricultural pesticide use, and improve public safety and crime-fighting efficacy, among other things. The barriers that restrain their diffusion significantly correlate to the complexity of developing their software control systems, which must be reliable, maintainable, intelligent, and safe.

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 Second IEEE International Conference on Robotic Computing (IRC 2018, aka Robotic Computing 2018) is inviting high quality research papers addressing the synergies between Computer Science and Robotics in all applications:
