Robots in the Wild: Challenges in Deploying Robust Autonomy for Robotic Exploration
Call for Papers
We are soliciting extended abstracts in the RSS format (4-6 pages plus references). We encourage the submission of early ideas, late-breaking results, or open research questions that are likely to generate interesting discussions. Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed by experts in the field. Accepted contributions will be presented as a 20 minute spotlight talk or a 5 minute lightning talk. All speakers will participate in a poster session.
- System consideration for exploration of extreme environments such as underwater and benthic habitats, hot-springs, volcanoes, asteroids, and planetary surfaces.
- Challenges in environmental monitoring, precision agriculture, and disaster response.
- Multi-robot learning and coordination for environmental modelling.
- Underground and underwater mapping, space missions and planetary robots.
- Novelty, anomaly, and change detection.
- Decision-theoretic approaches for active sensing and physical sample (specimen) retrieval.
- Sampling algorithms and strategies, e.g., opportunistic sampling, non-myopic sampling.
- Online exploration algorithms: theory, experiments and field studies.
- Submission cut-off (extended):
May 30, 2019 June 7, 2019 (Anywhere on Earth).
- Notification of acceptance (rolling basis): within two weeks of submission, until June 10, 2019.
- Camera-ready paper due: June 15, 2019.
- Workshop day: June 23, 2019.
