First IEEE International Workshop on Semantic Robots (WSR 2017)
in conjunction with
First IEEE International Conference on Robotic Computing (IRC-2017)

While many traditional robots are limited by a predefined set of 
alternatives for interactions and collaborations, one of the challenging 
goals in robotics and computer science is to build future robots and 
devices in physical or virtual forms that are multi-disciplinary in 
nature, connected to the world knowledge, and interact with humans to 
solve general as well as domain specific problems.
This workshop will gather people from industry and academia to create an 
opportunity to discuss how Semantic Computing can be effectively applied 
for smart interactions between humans and robots for problem solving, 
where Semantic Computing addresses the derivation, description, 
generation, integration, and use of the semantics (“meaning”, “context”, 
“intention”) of sources that may be static, dynamic, structured, 
semi-structured, unstructured, or a mixture of the above.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited, to the following:

* Derivation of semantics from text, image, video and audio
* Natural language processing and understanding
* Representation, integration and use of semantics for problem solving
* Semantic human-robot and robot-robot interface
* Deep conversation between human and robots
* Big data and deep learning
* IoT and Internet operating system
* Summary and presentation of semantics
* Multi-modal robot expression
* Domain specific and general problem solving
* Linked data and semantic web
* Data integration
* Service integration
* Search
* Location based semantics
* Context-based machine vision and multimedia computing
* Context sensitive question answering
* Planning
* Creativity and learning
* Connectivity and social interaction
* Semantic software engineering
* Activity and engagement engineering
* Data, cloud and service engineering

Paper Submission
Manuscripts must be written (6 pages maximum, all included) in English 
and follow the instructions in the Manuscript Formatting and Templates 
page given in IRC 2017 website in the "Submission" section.

Papers must be original and not be submitted to or accepted by any other 
conference or journal. Only electronic submission will be accepted. 
Manuscripts may only be submitted in PDF format. Each paper will be 
peer-reviewed. Papers accepted by the workshop will be published in the 
conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press. 
Outstanding papers will be invited to submit an extended version for 
possible publication in prestigious journals.

Papers should be submitted to Dr. Phillip Sheu (scrc at uci.edu). For any 
question regarding the workshop please contact Dr. Sheu at the same 
email address.
