Student Activities at CASE 2019

RAS - Thu, 08/22/2019 - 13:16

RAS is pleased to arrange a Student Social Evening and a Student Scavenger Hunt for our Members attending the 15th IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE) in Vancouver, Canada.

 

IEEE RAS CASE Student Evening

RAS Student Activities Committee (SAC) would like to invite all students attending CASE 2019 to a Student Social Gathering on the 

evening of Friday, 23 August 2019(starting at 20:00) at Sage Bistro. It will be a free and easy evening for students to connect with each other. Snacks provided and beverages available for purchase!

 

2019 CASE- RAS Student Photo Scavenger Hunt

 

Are you a student planning to attend CASE 2019 in Vancouver, Canada? Join the IEEE RAS Student Activities Committee for a fun scavenger hunt! Teams of 2-3 students will be emailed a super top secret list of objectives on the morning of 22 August. Throughout the conference, teams will then take pictures demonstrating achievement of each objective - ranging from shaking hands with RAS leadership, visiting local sights near the conference venue, to doing funny poses. Awards will be presented to teams which found the most items and teams with the most creative photos!

Who: Students attending CASE 2019 
What: A fun picture scavenger hunt 
When: 22 - 26 August 2019 
Where: CASE in Vancouver 
Why: Because everyone needs a little fun!   If you already know a few other students attending, you can form a Team and register as a group. If not, please register yourself, and we will team you up with other enthusiastic roboticists. 

 

Be sure to note that these activities are available for 2019 CASE Registrants. See you in Vancouver!

Call for Papers- IRC 2020

RAS - Tue, 08/20/2019 - 15:21

 

The boundaries between Computer Science and Robotics are continuing to be softened. On one hand computers are continuing to be humanized and a large number of cyber-physical systems are being developed to act upon the physical world. On the other hand the robotic community is looking into the robots of the 21st century that are versatile computing machines with high social impact potential, such as enhance transportation safety, reduce agricultural pesticide use, and improve public safety and crime-fighting efficacy, among other things. The barriers that restrain their diffusion significantly correlate to the complexity of developing their software control systems, which must be reliable, maintainable, intelligent, and safe.

Robotic Computing (RC) addresses the synergetic interaction of computing technologies and robotic technologies. The synergy between Robotics and Computer Science is both realistic and strategic. Their mutual benefit is to make it possible to build and evolve new robotic systems, to reduce their development cost, and to enhance their quality.

  • Robot simulation
  • Multi-robot systems

The Conference is also inviting innovative contributions that discuss the future of the field including, but not limited to:

  • What are the challenges to robotic computing?
  • What are the main unresolved theoretical and/or methodological controversies?
  • What are the stakeholders’ (e.g., industries, public bodies, educators) research and development problems?
  • What can be learned from other disciplines and what can they learn from robotic computing?
  • What is the real world experience of Robotic Computing over the past 10 years, and how might it continue to evolve as we look toward the next decade?

SUBMISSIONS

Authors are invited to submit an 8-page (full), 4-page (short), or 6-page (industry) technical paper manuscript in double-column IEEE format following the guidelines available on the IRC2020 web page. The conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Distinguished quality papers presented at the conference will be selected for the best paper/poster awards and for publication in internationally renowned journals.
