                      January 31 – February 2, 2018
                             Laguna Hills, California

                             Co-Located with 12th
IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC 2018)

The boundaries between Computer Science and Robotics are continuing to 
be softened. On the 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 
designing robots for the 21st century that are versatile computing 
machines with high social impact potential, able to 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

Authors are invited to submit an 8-page (regular), 4-page (short), or 
6-page (industry) technical paper manuscript in double-column IEEE 
format following the guidelines available on the IRC2018 web page. The 
conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. 
Distinguished quality papers presented at the conference will be 
selected for the best paper/poster awards and for publication in 
internationally renowned journals.
