ARSO 2017 - IEEE International Workshop on Advanced Robotics and its Social Impacts
From March 08, 2017 08:00 until March 10, 2017 18:00
The IEEE Workshop on Advanced Robotics and its Social Impacts (ARSO) will take place in Austin, Texas, 8-10 March 2017. ARSO is a single track workshop featuring talks in diverse scientific, health, industrial, social, innovation, security areas and more. The series started in Nagoya in 2005, and traveled through Beijing (2006), Hsinchu (2007), Taipei (2008), Tokyo (2009), Seoul (2010), Half Moon Bay CA (2011), Munich (2012), Tokyo (2013), Evanston (2014), Lyon (2015), and Shanghai (2016). Participants are world class robotics research scientists, social, economic, legal and technology thinkers, innovators, investors and government officials. ARSO's topics range from traditional robotics technologies, innovation, socio-economic aspects, but also psychological and philosophical aspects of Human Robot Interaction.
The 2017 workshop will overlap with the famed South by Southwest (SXSW 2017 http://www.sxsw.com/) conference in Austin, featuring a powerful interactive festival with cutting-edge talks in topics highly connected to ARSO.
We invite papers about all cutting-edge technology, including their business opportunities, as well as their present and potential impacts on the human world. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
Robots and our human societies
Ethical issues of social robots
Macroeconomic effects of robotics
Industrial and manufacturing trends in robotics
Robotic innovation and startups
Autonomous systems and drones
Robots for space exploration
Robotics in defense
Robotics in the oil and gas industry
Health and rehabilitation robotics
Robot assistants and artificial life systems
Design and control of mobile robots
Networked robotic systems
Embodied cognitive systems
Prospective authors should submit papers electronically in PDF format via PaperPlaza. Six pages in standard IEEE format are allowed for each paper. Up to two additional pages are permitted with an extra charge. Authors are encouraged to mention if they prefer an oral or a poster presentation (including a 3 min teaser in the plenary session).
ORGANIZED SESSION SUBMISSION
We encourage proposals for organized sessions to be held during the conference. Session descriptions should fit on two pages submitted through paperplaza. The format, and content of the session can be quite open as long as it aligns with ARSO interests.
7 October 2016 - Papers and Organized Sessions Submissions
11 December 2016 - Acceptance Notifications
15 January 2017 - Final Paper Submission
8-10 March 2017 - Workshop & Exhibition
