EURON To the members of the EURON Interest Group in Cooperative Robotics ECC-01

Call for Papers

Invited Session on Cooperative Robotics
European Control Conference - ECC 2001

September 2001, Porto, Portugal

Within the activities of the Interest Group on Cooperative Robotics of EURON, we are planning to propose a special session on Cooperative Robotics to the European Control Conference, ECC-2001, which will take place in Porto, Portugal, on September 4-7, 2001.

The aim of the session is to provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of research results and activities related to cooperative robotics within Europe. We encourage all the participants of EURON to contribute to this session.

All the submitted papers will be revised by the same set of reviewers (chosen by the ECC organizers) who, besides evaluating the quality of each individual paper, will also evaluate the coherence of the session. 4-5 contributions will be selected for the session. In case the session is not approved as a whole, individual accepted papers may still be considered, upon request to the ECC General Chairman, as regular papers.

Given the short time before the submission deadline, this initiative is only being advertised inside our EURON Interest Group. However, feel free to distribute it to other potential interested participants, as everyone is most welcome.
