Call For Papers

12th International Thematic Track on Intelligent Robotics

To be held at EPIA 2023, September 5-8, 2023
Faial Island, Azores, Portugal

The EPIA Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a
well-established European conference in the field of AI.
The 22nd edition, EPIA 2023, will take place in Horta, Faial
Island (Azores) between September 5th-8th, 2023. As in previous
editions, this international conference is hosted with the patronage
of the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA).
The purpose of this conference is to promote research in all areas
of AI, covering both theoretical/foundational issues and applications,
and the scientific exchange among researchers, engineers, and
practitioners in related disciplines.

EPIA 2023 will feature a set of thematic tracks, covering a wide spectrum
of AI topics.
Accepted papers will be published in a Springer's Lecture Notes in
Artificial Intelligence volume.

## Important Dates

28 Apr 2023: Paper Submission Deadline (extended)
26 May 2023: Author Notification
15 Jun 2023: Camera-Ready Deadline
5-8 Sep 2023: EPIA'2023 Conference

## IROBOT Description

IROBOT'2023 poses itself as a follow-up on the previous nine International
Thematic Tracks/Workshops on Intelligent Robotics held at EPIA since 2005.
Its main purpose is to bring together researchers, engineers and other
professionals interested in the application of AI techniques in real/simulated
robotics to discuss current work and future directions.

Robotics, from the point of view of AI, has been an important
application field, from which AI has also gained. Namely, the dynamic
and unforeseen nature of the environment, especially for mobile robots,
has fostered research in these aspects of AI. Together with the developments
in Robotics Research, the use of Robotics in industry and services has
changed a lot in recent years. New paradigms and approaches for industrial
robots and service robots have emerged, for example, on mobile robots
learning, localization, mapping and navigation in unstructured environments.

IROBOT 2023 will discuss will discuss these new developments on industrial
and service robotics with focus on robotic assistive platforms/solutions and
robotics application related to nature (ocean, florest, agriculture, etc.).

## Topics of Interest

The Thematic Track will be structured around the following themes:

- Adaptive and flexible industrial robotics
- Agriculture robots
- AI Planning for robotics
- Autonomous vehicles
- Cognitive robotics
- Computer vision and object recognition
- Coordination in robotics
- Evolutionary robotics and reactive intelligence
- Human-robots interface and interaction
- Humanoid robotics
- Intelligent buildings and warehouses
- Intelligent transportation systems
- Mobile robots localization and navigation
- Modelling and simulating complex robots
- Multi-Robot systems
- Field Robots
- Real-time reactivity
- Robot behaviour engineering
- Robot learning and adaptation
- Robotic surveillance
- Sensor fusion

This topics' list is not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the
topics, and authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related
topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in the thematic track main

## Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit original research contributions or
experience reports in English. Scientific or technical articles describing
state-of-the-art techniques, algorithms, systems, environments, problems
or applications relevant to the area of Intelligent Robotics may
be submitted. Papers discussing application transfer from simulated to
real robots and papers showing socially useful robotic applications
generated by participations in robotic competitions are also welcome.
Although the main focus is on robot learning, there will be space for
reporting research in AI applied to other types of robots.

Submissions must follow the guidelines specified in the EPIA'2023 site.
The Springer LNCS format must be used (instructions in
Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers.
The length of submitted full papers must not exceed 12 pages. Authors must remove
their names from the submitted papers, and should take reasonable care
not to indirectly disclose their identity. Paper submissions will be made
in PDF format, through the submission page:

Three program committee members will be assigned to review each
paper. Acceptance will be based on the paper's significance, technical
quality, clarity, relevance and originality. Accepted papers, must be
presented at the conference by one of the authors. Accepted papers will
be scheduled for presentation, which requires that at least one of the
authors should register at the Conference. All accepted papers will be
published in the Conference Proceedings.
