Event Description

The International Workshop on the Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics (WAFR)
18-20 December 2016, San Francisco, CA
http://wafr.org/

Location: The Exploratorium

The International Workshop on the Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics (WAFR) is a single-track workshop devoted to recent advances on algorithmic problems in robotics. The workshop proceedings will be published in a hardcover volume in the Springer STAR series, and selected papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Robotics Research.

Topics

The focus of WAFR is on the design and analysis of robot algorithms from both theoretical and practical angles. The topics of interest are very broad. We encourage papers on fundamental algorithmic issues, such as complexity, completeness, machine learning, probabilistic reasoning, and new programming paradigms, to name a few. We also encourage papers on applications of robot algorithms to important or new domains, such as manufacturing, legged locomotion, distributed robotics, human-robot interaction, surgical robots, intelligent prosthetics, and brain-controlled robots. Furthermore, robot algorithms are being applied in domains beyond the traditional scope of robotics, e.g., computational biology, computer animation, sensor networks, etc. Papers on these topics are also welcome.
