Overview

As indicated by the fact that `ubiquitous robotics' is this year's conference theme, network robot systems integrated with their environments are a very important emerging research direction. It is the promising frontier of robotics to realize human robot symbiosis as well as to help us learn about the human behaviour.

The workshop covers all aspects around network robot system, such as ubiquitous robotics and cooperative robotics as well as networked environment sensing/actuation, intelligence and control of distributed ubiquitous systems, and consistent interaction between humans and multi components of the environment. In addition, the workshop covers human-robot symbiosis, such as human-robot interaction in daily environments, which should be an important goal of the network robot systems.

Paper Submission

The workshop will consist of several invited talks and paper presentations. Interested authors are welcome to submit their contributions. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Papers should be prepared according to the ICRA2007 final camera ready format, and should be 4 to 8 pages long. The detailed information on the paper format is available from the ICRA 2007 page. Submissions should be sent to kanda@atr.jp in the Portable Document Format (PDF) no later than January 4.
