Intelligent Robotics (IROBOT)

IROBOT’2019 poses itself as a follow-up on the previous eight IROBOT International Thematic Tracks/Workshops on Intelligent Robotics – IROBOT’’2005 (held at EPIA’2005), IROBOT’’2007 (held at EPIA’2007), IROBOT’2008 (held at IBERAMIA’2008), IROBOT’’2009 (held at EPIA’2009), IROBOT’’2011 (held at EPIA’2011), IROBOT’’2013 (held at EPIA’2013), IROBOT’’2015 (held at EPIA’2015) and IROBOT’’2017 (held at EPIA’2017). As in previous editions, its main purpose is to bring together researchers, engineers and other professionals interested in the application of AI techniques in real/simulated robotics to discuss current work and future directions.

Robotics, from the point of view of AI, has been an important application field, from which AI has also gained. Namely, the dynamic and unforeseen nature of the environment, especially for mobile robots, has fostered research in these aspects of AI. Together with the developments in Robotics Research, the use of Robotics in industry and services has changed a lot in recent years. New paradigms and approaches for industrial robots and service robots have emerged, for example, on mobile robots learning, localization, mapping and navigation in unstructured environments. IROBOT 2019 will discuss these new developments on industrial and service robotics with focus on robot learning.
