IEEE International Workshop at IROS2019
Toward Cognitive Vehicles:
Perception, learning and decision making under real-world constraints. Is bio-inspiration helpful?

November 8, 2019 - IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems - Macau, China

Workshop Description

While biological inspiration has led to some of the most successful approaches in perception and machine learning in form of deep neural networks, their deployment in real-world, safety-critical settings is yet limited. We aim to explore and critically discuss what biological inspiration in perception, learning, and “cognition" could bring in the future for increasing intelligence of vehicles and other robotic systems.  The workshop will stimulate discussion of the role of biological inspiration in the development of future AI systems in the context of real-world, safety-critical applications of robotic systems in environments shared with humans:  https://cogvehicles2019.github.io

Call for Papers
We invite contributions in the form of extended abstracts (min. 2 pages, max. 4 pages) in IEEE paper format to be presented at the workshop as posters and/or demos. Please follow the authors guidelines<http://ras.papercept.net/conferences/support/support.php> and use the LaTex <http://ras.papercept.net/conferences/support/tex.php> or MS Word <http://ras.papercept.net/conferences/support/word.php> templates for the IROS conference<https://www.iros2019.org/>. Outstanding contributions will be selected for oral presentations.
We plan to publish extended versions of the papers accepted to the workshop as an article collection around the research topic of Towards Cognitive Vehicles: perception, learning and decision making under real-world constraints. Is bio-inspiration helpful? in Frontiers in Neurorobotics<https://www.frontiersin.org/journals/neurorobotics>. Additionally, accepted papers and eventual supplementary material will be made available on the workshop website.
