CFP: CFP: IROS Workshop on: "Current software frameworks in cognitive robotics integrating different computational paradigms"
Workshop on: "Current software frameworks in cognitive robotics integrating different computational paradigms" in conjunction with IROS 2008, Nice, France September 22nd, 2008 CALL FOR CONTRIBUTION The objective of this workshop is to highlight and discuss existing examples of software frameworks combining autonomous robot systems and cognition research. The WS is intended as a platform for exchange and discussion, open for researchers as well as hardware and software engineers. We are pleased to have invited speakers sharing their experience on this topic and presenting software systems which have been developed out of long experience in the integration of heterogeneous robot hardware and software for multi-disciplinary research projects. Authors are invited to submit papers presenting recent work on software frameworks able to combine high-level cognitive models and heterogeneous robot system in a direct and robust manner. The contribution must explicitly address at least one of the following topics: * existing software frameworks able to integrate different paradigms of computational intelligence for autonomous robot control * general software architectures explicitly dealing with the integration of robot hardware and cognitive models * frameworks for sustainable software design for heterogeneous robot platforms * software frameworks providing implementations of cognitive models grounded in specific computational paradigms, but which are proven to be open for different robot platforms, i.e. open for different sensor and actuator systems If you are interested in participation or presenting your solutions at this event, please visit our WS websites: http://users.aber.ac.uk/msh/WS08/ or the official IROS 2008 websites: http://iros2008.inria.fr/workshops.php for further details about this WS and an extended version of this call.
