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 applications:

- RAMS abilities of robotic systems

- Hardware modeling and abstraction

- Resource awareness

- Sensor fusion, integration

- Place recognition, localization

- Object recognition, tracking

- Scene interpretation

- Robot cognition

- Manipulation, grasping

- Robot kinematics, dynamics

- Motion planning, control

- Navigation

- Task planning, monitoring

- Human-robot interaction

- Robot simulation

- Multi-robot systems

- 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



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
