TAROS 2015 : Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems
Conference Series : Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems
Call For Papers
TAROS welcomes senior researchers and research students alike, and specifically provides opportunities for research students and young research scientists to present their work to the scientific community. As in previous years, all accepted papers will be included in the printed proceedings.
TAROS is a platform for robotics researchers with a wide range of interests from the UK, Europe and worldwide. TAROS welcomes paper submissions on a wide range of topics related to the principles and practice of robotics.
TAROS 2015 is being hosted by the Department of Computer Science at the University of Liverpool, and will include an academic conference, industry exhibitions/talks, robot demonstrations and other satellite events.
The TAROS 2015 proceedings are to be published in the Springer LNCS series.
TAROS 2015 invites both full papers, short papers and application/demonstration papers. All contributions will be refereed. Full papers are invited from researchers at any stage in their career but should present significant findings and advances in robotics research; more preliminary work would be better suited to short paper submission. Full papers may be accepted for either oral or poster presentation. Short papers will be accepted for poster presentation only. Authors of accepted demo submissions will be expected to demonstrate their system at TAROS 2015.
Submissions of papers are invited in, but not limited to, the following topics and related areas:
Advanced applications of autonomous robots (industrial and research)
Advanced materials and techniques
Advanced medical robotics, robots for surgery, assistive robotics, Service robotics
Applications development, hardware issues, devices and techniques, advanced sensors and actuators
