ACM SAC 2009 - CALL FOR PAPERS

Track: Intelligent Robotic Systems (ROBOT)
http://www.icmc.usp.br/~lrm/sac09/

The 24th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SIGAPP)
March 8 - 12, 2009, Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa
Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
(http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2009/)

For the past twenty-three years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists,
computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from
around the world. For the second year, the ACM SAC will have a specific
track on robotics. It aims to be a forum for researchers to share
experiences, expose issues, and discuss about this exciting research field.

Robotics is a multidisciplinary area of study that presents an enormous
commercial and research potential. While industrial robotics covers the
study, design, and use of robot systems for manufacturing, mobile
robotics concerns about developing systems that are capable of making
decisions and acting autonomously in real and unpredictable environments
to accomplish determined tasks. In the last decade, technological
advances made possible the development of very efficient sensors and
electronic devices at affordable prices. This fact has great impact on
robotics research, allowing the development of efficient and relatively
cheap sensors and computing devices. It also allows robots to accomplish
more complex tasks, posing new challenges to scientists and engineers.
This track focuses on all aspects of robotics, including related areas
and applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Rehabilitation Robotics
Humanoid Robotics
Underwater Robots
Search and Rescue Robots
Entertainment Robots
Multi-robot Coordination
Active Perception and Vision
Coverage and Deployment
Learning
Autonomous systems
Navigation
Localization and Mapping
Evolutionary Robotics
Grasping
Control Architectures and Programming
Bio-Inspired Robots
Aerial Robotics
Contact Modeling and Touching
Educational Robotics
Smart Actuators
Micro/nano robotics
Embedded Systems architectures
Reconfigurable robotic platforms
Vision-based Systems
Multi-robot systems
Simulation
