Call For Papers

MORSE'17 - 4th Workshop on Model-Driven Robot Software Engineering

MORSE'17 is co-located with STAF 2017.
Conference Date: July 17 - July 21 2017
Workshop Date: July 17, 2017
Location: Marburg, Germany

Robots are an indispensable part of modern production facilities. In the
future, robots will also become more common in daily life. Currently, however,
there is a lack of standardization w. r. t. hardware/software platforms for
robots, leading to a vast landscape of isolated, incompatible, task-specific
and, thus, non-reusable solutions. Consequently, there is a need for new
engineering methodologies for the design, implementation and execution of
software for robotic platforms.

Model-Driven Robot Software Engineering (MORSE) is a promising research field
combining Software Engineering and Robotics. Its objectives are to introduce
model-driven development methodologies for the development of robot software.
At the same time, formal methods should be transferred to robotics because
"robot apps" must be certified and verified. MORSE attempts to fill this gap.

Submissions are encouraged, but not limited, in the following topics:

Robotic Platforms: MDA, Models, Processes and Tools
- Hardware/Software Abstractions | Architectures | Metamodels
- Code- and Application-Reuse | Managed Redundancy | Deployment
- Variability in Robotic Systems | Self-Adaptive Systems | Evolution
- Programming Languages | Paradigms | Models | DSLs

Models for and Modelling in Robotics
- Sensors and Actuators | Sensor Integration
- Computer Vision and Image Processing | Recognition and Tracking
- Knowledge Representation and Reasoning | Context Models
- Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling
- Localization, Mapping and Navigation
- Autonomous Robots | Robot Learning and Artificial Intelligence

Robot Ecosystems and Total Cost of Ownership
- Product-Line Development | Robot Apps
- End-User Customization | Multi-Tenancy

Model-Driven Quality Assurance of Robotic Systems
- Verification | Validation | Testing | Simulation | Debugging | Profiling
- Handling Emergent Behavior and Uncertainty | Software Qualities

Multi-Robot Systems
- Cooperative Perception | Planning | Task Allocation | Coordination
- Robot Swarms | Multi-Agent Robotic Systems

Abstract Submission Deadline: April 14, 2017
Submission Deadline: April 21, 2017
Notification: May 25, 2017
Camera Ready: July 1, 2017
Workshop: July 17, 2016

Paper abstracts should be submitted electronically by April 14, 2017 via
EasyChair ( Submitted papers
should conform to the ACM SIG Proceedings Style (alternate format).

Submissions to the workshop are possible in two categories:
- Regular Papers (6 pages) should describe original work on a problem or
solution w.r.t. the described topics of interest.
- Position Papers (2-4 pages) should present a well-defined position on how
model-driven techniques can improve the software engineering of robotic

The accepted papers will be digitally published in CEUR-WS. Authors of
accepted papers will be expected to attend the workshop.
