[Archive] Call for Papers – AHS 2017

A special focus of AHS-2017 is adaptation in robotic systems and unmanned vehicles. The broader area in which contributions are sought includes (but is not limited to).

We seek original contributions suggested, but not limited, to the following areas of interest:

1) Adaptation in hardware, for example, as manifested in:

  • Reconfigurable circuits
  • Circuits and structures
  • Prosthetic hardware
  • Wearable devices

2) Algorithms for adaptation, in contexts such as:

  • Optimization, learning, and evolution
  • Coordination and cooperation
  • Fault tolerance and robustness

3) Design methodologies for adaptive systems, e.g., related to:

  • Computer-aided design
  • Performance, cost, power, and reliability strategies
  • Formal methods

4) Adaptation in robotics and unmanned systems, as reflected in:

  • Sensing and perception
  • Navigation and mapping
  • Human-robot interaction
  • Multi-robot teams
  • Cognitive architectures
  • Tensegrity and compliance
  • Soft robots

5) Applications in areas such as:

  • Space systems and missions
  • Autonomous vehicles
  • Social systems, economics, and finance
  • Telecommunications
  • Biotechnology and pharma
  • Assisted living and healthcare

Instruction to Authors

Papers are limited to 8 pages and should be submitted in single-spaced, double column, 10 point type on a 8.5″ X 11″ or equivalent paper with 1″ margins on all sides. Each submission should contain a title, the authors’ names and affiliations, a maximum 200 words abstract, the body of the paper, and references based on the IEEE template.
