CFP: Workshop on Robotics and Mathematics ROBOMAT'07


Dear Colleague,

The Workshop on Robotics and MathematicsROBOMAT07 will be 
held in Coimbra, Portugal on September 17-19, 2007. 

The workshop is organized by the International Centre for Mathematics. 

This workshop will aim at discussing several problems from Robotics from the 
perspective of the mathematical problems that they raise. It will be a forum 
where specialists with backgrounds both in Engineering and Mathematics will 
have an opportunity to discuss relevant research issues not from the point of 
view of the application but essentially from the point of view of the 
mathematical models and principles required to solve them.

Some of the topics relevant for the workshop are:

Algebraic and differential topology.
Differential geometry
Dynamic systems theory.
Optimization algorithms.
Differential algebraic inequalities.
Statistical learning theory.
Invited lectures by:
--Prof. Henrik Christensen
--Prof. David Mumford
--Dr. Raja Chatila

The deadline for submission of extended 
abstracts (2 pages) to the Robomat07 workshop is June 30, 2006.  

Then extended abstracts should be submitted to

Additional details are available at the Workshop website:

Due to your research activities in the field, we would like to 
invite you to submit a contributed paper. Your contribution  
is mostly welcome and we would be honoured if 
you could  participate in the Workshop.

We appreciate very much your interest in 
participating in ROBOMAT07.
