[robotics-worldwide] [meetings]Deadline extension - The 12th International Conference on FIELD AND SERVICE ROBOTICS (FSR)

Genya Ishigami ishigami at mech.keio.ac.jp
Wed Mar 27 01:27:07 PDT 2019

(Deadline has been extended to April 10th.)

The goal of FSR is to report and encourage the development of field and service robotics. These are non-factory robots, typically mobile, that must operate in complex and dynamic environments. Typical field robotics applications include mining, agriculture, building and construction, forestry, cargo handling and so on. Field robots may operate on the ground (of Earth or planets), under the ground, underwater, in the air, or in space. Service robots are those that work closely with humans, importantly the elderly and sick, to help them with their lives.

Paper Submission:
We invite papers describing original work in a number of technical areas related to field and service robotics. A book version of the Conference Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in their STAR series and selected field robotics papers will be considered for publication in a Special Issue of the Journal of Field Robotics.
