Call for Papers

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) 
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

- 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
- Hardware modeling and abstraction
- Resource awareness
- Sensor fusion, integration
- Place recognition, localization
- Object recognition, tracking

- Multi-robot systems

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
