From 13 Dec, 2016 until 16 Dec, 2016
At Parc 55- A Hilton Hotel
The 2016 IEEE International Conference on Simulation, Modeling, and Programming for Autonomous Robots (SIMPAR 2016) will be held in San Francisco, California, December 13–16, 2016. IEEE SIMPAR is the world's leading conference for simulation in robotics and automation. For its fifth edition, SIMPAR will come for the first time to the North American continent.
The theme of the fifth Edition is "Leveraging Simulation and Machine Learning for Robotics". The event will bring together researchers and engineers from academia and industry to identify and solve key issues in software development for autonomous robots and to boost a smooth shifting of results from simulated to real-world applications.
Novel robotics applications driven by research, industry and society call for the development of systems of ever increasing complexity: systems with sliding autonomy; humanoid robots; distributed robots; mobile sensor networks. Steady improvements in robot hardware have not been matched by corresponding advancements in robot simulation software – especially in the domain of machine learning. Besides fundamental open problems still waiting for sound answers, the development of new robotics applications still suffers from the lack of widely used tools, libraries, and algorithms ready to be incorporated into new projects. Simulation environments are playing a main role in reducing development time and cost of large scale systems. Seamless migration of code from general purpose simulators to real world systems is a requirement for the future success of robotics and automation.
