AI Robot Related Conferences and Journals For My Research (Part 4)

AI Robot Related Conferences and Journals For My Research Part 3

Top Conferences

RSS -- Robotics: Science and Systems Conference

RSS is a single-track conference held annually that brings together researchers working on algorithmic or mathematical foundations of robotics, robotics applications, and analysis of robotics systems. The very low average acceptance rate of 25% makes the conference a very selective one. Accepted papers cover a wide range of topics such as kinematics/dynamic control, planning/algorithms, manipulation, human-robot interaction, robot perception, estimation and learning for robotic systems, and etc. One thing great about this conference is that all proceedings are available online for free

RSS is also a relatively new conference. The first ever RSS was held in 2005. However, the conference is growing quickly, attracting lead researchers in the robotics community with an expected attendance of over 400 for the next RSS conference. The conference also includes several workshops and tutorials. I have not submitted anything to the RSS conference in the past. It would be really nice if I could get a paper published here.

The next RSS conference RSS 2012 will be held at Sydney, Australia.
Conference Dates: June 27-July 1, 2012 (Roughly)
Submission Deadline: January 17, 2012 (Roughly)

SMC -- IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics

The SMC conference is a multi-track conference held annually. It provides an international forum for researchers and practitioners to report the latest innovations,
summarize the state-of-the-art, and exchange ideas and advances in all aspects of systems engineering, human-machine systems, and emerging cybernetics. Wikipedia defines the word Cybernetics as "the interdisciplinary study of the structure of regulatory systems." Cybernetics is closely related to information theory, control theory and systems theory.

The SMC conference is sponsored by the Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society, whose mission is: "... to serve the interests of its members and the community at large by promoting the theory, practice, and interdisciplinary aspects of systems science and engineering, human-machine systems, and cybernetics. It is accomplished through conferences, publications, and other activities that contribute to the professional needs of its members."

My interest in the conference lies in the human-machine systems track, especially under the topics of adjustable autonomy, human centered design, and human-robot interaction. This would be a good place to publish research related to UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) and search and rescue robotics.

I have never submitted anything to this conference before and I can't find any information on the acceptance rate for the conference. But one thing for sure, this is not one of those "come and greet" conferences and all papers submitted go through a serious peer-review process.

The next SMC conference SMC 2011 will be held at Anchorage, Alaska, USA.
Conference Dates: October 9-12, 2011
Submission Deadline: April 1, 2011

The next SMC conference you can submit paper to is SMC 2012, which will be held in Seoul, Korea.
Conference Dates: October 7-10, 2012
Submission Deadline: April 1, 2012 (Roughly)

Why is every day so short? Wouldn't it be nice if we don't have to sleep?
