Call for papers: Advanced Robotics

Special Issue on "Machine Learning and Data Engineering in Robotics"

Paper Submission Deadline: June 30, 2015

Publication in Vol. 30, No. 9 (May 2016)


With the growth of sensor data and networked devices, machine learning

has been gaining interest both in robotics and many other disciplines.

The collaboration between machine learning and data engineering in

robotics could have a strong impact on the way robots or services help

our lives as well as on deepening our understanding of human intelligence.

This special issue attempts to showcase state-of-the-art studies ranging

from sensor data management through learning real-world data or

behaviors as well as probabilistic models in constructive approaches.

Emphasis will be given to novel algorithms and theories in the field,

quantitatively comparable research results, robotic applications that

help people, and constructive approaches that model human cognitive skills.

We solicit original and high-quality papers on machine learning and data

engineering in robotics. We also solicit survey papers that discuss open

challenges and state-of-the-art techniques. Topics of interest include,

but are not limited to:

- Probabilistic models and reasoning

- Neural networks

- Data compression

- Feature description

- Sensor fusion

- Multimodal learning/interaction

- Robot dialogue

- Scene understanding

- Generic object recognition

- Symbol grounding

- Symbol emergence in robotics

- Language acquisition

- Reinforcement learning

- Imitation learning

- Motion recognition

- Cyber-physical systems

- Big data

- Cloud robotics

- Service robots
