23rd Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems (TAROS) Conference 

Culham Science Centre, 7th September – 9th September 2022  

Call for papers and paper submission

The TAROS conference is a platform for robotics researchers with a wide range of interests from the UK, Europe and worldwide. TAROS welcomes senior researchers and research students alike, and specifically provides opportunities for research students and young research scientists to present their work to the scientific community.

The TAROS 2022 proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCS series.

20th May 2022 Submission deadline (5pm BST)
10th June 2022 Confirmation of acceptance
15th July 2022 Camera-ready paper submission (5pm BST)

Submit to TAROS 2022

Submissions of papers are invited in, but not limited to, the following topics and related areas:

  • Advanced applications of autonomous robots (industrial and research) 
  • Advanced materials and techniques 
  • Advanced medical robotics, robots for surgery, assistive robotics, Service robotics 
  • Applications development, hardware issues, devices and techniques, advanced sensors and actuators 
  • Autonomous assembly robotics, Autonomous vehicles 
  • Bio-mimetic and bio-inspired robotics, Bio-hybrid robotic systems, Evolutionary robotics 
  • Cognitive robotics, Developmental robotics, Personal robotics, Robot communication and language 
  • Ethical and societal issues in robotics, Robots in education, the arts and entertainment 
  • Flying robots (unmanned- and micro- air vehicles), Space and planetary robotics 
  • Humanoid robotics, Human-Robot interaction and interfaces, Legged robots 
  • Safety, Verification and Validation for Robotic Applications 
  • Swarm robotics, Collective robots, Field robotics 
  • Learning and adaptation, Long-term interaction and operation, Intelligent prostheses 
  • Modelling and analysis of robot models, Modular reconfigurable robots 
  • Navigation, localization, map building and path planning, Analysis of robot-environment interaction 
  • Robot autonomy including energy self-sufficiency, Robot control architectures, Robot vision, sensing and perception  

TAROS 2022 invites full papers (12-15 pages), short papers (6-11 pages). All contributions will be refereed. Full papers are invited from researchers at any stage in their career but should present significant findings and advances in robotics research; more preliminary work would be better suited to short paper submission. Full papers may be accepted for either oral presentation or A0 poster presentation. Short papers will be accepted for poster presentation only. All accepted papers will appear in the printed proceedings.

Submit your paper

TAROS 2022 invites both full length and short papers. The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS) series. Full papers are invited from researchers at any stage in their career but should present significant findings and advances in robotics research; more preliminary work would be better suited to short paper submission. Full papers (12-15 pages in LNCS format) will be accepted for either oral presentation (single track) or poster presentation. Short papers (6-11 pages) will be accepted for poster presentation and give a lightning talk (2min). All accepted papers will appear in the printed proceedings.

Submissions are requested in Latex format only

Lightning Talk Event

Each poster will be invited to give a brief talk (2 minutes!) on their work on Wednesday. The presenter may use a maximum of three PowerPoint slides. Slides must be sent to the organisers at least 1 hour before the event.

The order of presenters will be communicated ahead of time, and the slides collated and ordered to ensure a smooth transition between presentations.

Posters

Please note the following remarks concerning posters:

  • The poster boards are approximately 850mm high by 1200mm wide (i.e. A0 size), so please plan your poster to be no larger than A0 (841mm x 1189mm) for display in landscape format.
  • An A1 size (594mm x 841mm) poster may be displayed either in portrait or landscape format.
  • If you intend to use individual sheets, please plan your display within the dimensions given.
  • We do not have printing facilities, authors are expected to print the posters themselves and bring the posters with them.
