Theme & Goals of RoSE’21

Increasingly, challenging domains employ robotic applications. Yet, Robotics still is one of the most challenging domains for software engineering. Deploying robotics applications requires integrating solutions from experts of various domains, including navigation, path planning, manipulation, localization, human-robot interaction, etc. Integration of modules contributed by respective domain experts is one of the key challenges in engineering software-centric systems, yet only one of the cross-cutting software concerns crucial to robotics. As robots often operate in dynamic, partially observable environments additional challenges include adaptability, robustness, safety, and security.

The goal of RoSE 2021 is to bring together researchers from participating domains with practitioners to identify new frontiers in robotics software engineering, discuss challenges raised by real-world applications, and transfer the latest insights from research to industry. RoSE 2021 will solicit contributions from both academic and industrial participants, thus fostering active synergy between the two communities.

Topics include, but are not limited to
- Analysis of challenges in robotic software engineering
- Architectures that lead to reusable robotic software
- Challenges for defining and integrating domain-specific languages for the
  design of robotic systems
- Continuous integration and deployment in robotics
- Identification and analysis of design principles promoting quality of
  service (e.g., performance, energy efficiency)
- Engineering the collaboration of multiple (heterogeneous) robots
- Machine learning for safety-critical robotic systems
- Metrics to measure non-functional properties (e.g., robustness,
  availability, etc.) and their application in robotic software
- Best practices in engineering robotic software
- Variability, modularity, and reusability in robotic software
- Validation and verification of robotic software
- Processes and tools supporting the engineering and development of robotic
- State-of-the-art research projects, innovative ideas, and field-based
  studies in robotic software engineering
- Lessons learned in the engineering and deployment of large-scale, real-world
  integrated robot

RoSE'21 seeks contributions in the form of

- research papers presenting novel contributions on advancing software
  engineering in robotics (max. 8 pages)
- challenge showcase papers describing robotics challenges considered
  insufficiently addressed from an industry perspective (max. 6 pages)
- lessons learned papers describing lessons learned in the collaboration
  between the two communities of SE and robotics (max. 6 pages)
- vision papers on future of software engineering in robotics (max. 4 pages)
- tool & project papers on software engineering in robotics (max. 4 pages)

Workshop papers must follow the ICSE 2021 Format and Submission Guidelines but will use a single-blind submission process. All submitted papers will be reviewed based on technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity by the program committee. Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings. All papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format through the EasyChair workshop website:
