    From Animals to Animats 8

    Proceedings of the Eighth International Conference on the Simulation of Adaptive Behavior

    Stefan Schaal, Auke Jan Ijspeert, Aude Billard, Sethu Vijayakumar, John Hallam, and Jean-Arcady Meyer

    New research on the adaptive behavior of natural and synthetic agents.

    The biannual International Conference on the Simulation of Adaptive Behavior brings together researchers from ethology, psychology, ecology, artificial intelligence, artificial life, robotics, engineering, and related fields to advance the understanding of behaviors and underlying mechanisms that allow natural and synthetic agents (animats) to adapt and survive in uncertain environments. The work presented focuses on well-defined models—robotic, computer simulation, and mathematical—that help to characterize and compare various organizational principles or architectures underlying adaptive behavior in both animals and animats. The proceedings of the eighth conference treat such topics as passive and active perception, navigation and mapping, collective and social behavior, and applied adaptive behavior.

    Science and Systems VI

    Yoky Matsuoka, Hugh Durrant-Whyte, and José Neira

    Papers from a flagship robotics conference that cover topics ranging from kinematics to human-robot interaction and robot perception.

    Robotics: Science and Systems VI spans a wide spectrum of robotics, bringing together researchers working on the foundations of robotics, robotics applications, and the analysis of robotics systems. This volume presents the proceedings of the sixth Robotics: Science and Systems conference, held in 2010 at the University of Zaragoza, Spain. The papers presented cover a wide range of topics in robotics, spanning mechanisms, kinematics, dynamics and control, human-robot interaction and human-centered systems, distributed systems, mobile systems and mobility, manipulation, field robotics, medical robotics, biological robotics, robot perception, and estimation and learning in robotic systems. The conference and its proceedings reflect not only the tremendous growth of robotics as a discipline but also the desire in the robotics community for a flagship event at which the best of the research in the field can be presented.
