Call For Papers

The 3rd joint conference of AI &Robotics and the 5th RoboCup IranOpen International Symposium will be held in conjunction with RoboCup IranOpen 2013, during the competitions and demonstrations.The Symposium represents the core meeting for presentation and discussion of scientific contributions in diverse areas related to the main threads within AI, Robotics, RoboCupSoccer, RoboCupRescue, RoboCup@Home and RoboCupJunior.

Its scope encompasses, but not restricted to research and education activities within the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. Due to its interdisciplinary nature and exploration of various and intimate connections of theory and practice across a wide spectrum of different fields, the symposium offers an excellent opportunity to introduce new techniques to various scientific disciplines.

To extend the Symposium beyond RoboCup activities it is jointly held with the 3rd conference of AI & Robotics which will give researchers from different disciplines of AI and Robotics to identify important new trends and challenges in major sub-fields of Artificial Intelligence and Mobile Robots.

Major topics include but not limited to the following:

- Artificial Intelligence
           - cognitive modeling and human interaction
           - entertainment
           - fuzzy logic and neural networks
           - genetic and evolutionary algorithms
           - knowledge representation,planning, modeling and reasoning
           - machine learning and data mining
           - multi-disciplinary AI
           - probabilistic reasoning
           - self adaptive software engineering
           - uncertainty in AI

- Robot hardware and software

           - service robots


We solicit submissions of papers reporting on high-quality, original research with relevance to the areas mentioned above. All researchers working in these areas,even if not actively participating in RoboCup teams, are urged to submit their work. Both papers describing real-world research and papers reporting theoretical results, as well as combinations thereof, are welcome. Submitted papers can be in English or Farsi and limited to 7 pages according to the IEEE formatting for English papers and the format available in conference site for Farsi papers. All papers must be electronically submitted through the electronic submission website. All submissions must include the entire manuscript PDF file excluding the author(s) information section attached with the entire manuscript doc or LaTeX source including the author(s) information section. All contributions are peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers using a blind review process.

We are in the process of seeking final approval to have the accepted papers indexed by IEEE Xplore.
