RobotDoC-PhD 2012

Postgraduate conference on robotics and development of cognition


Lausanne, Switzerland, September 10-12, 2012.

The RobotDoC-PhD Conference aims to bring together young scientists working on developmental cognitive robotics and to provide feedback and greater visibility to their research. The conference is one of the Training Milestones of the Marie Curie ITN RobotDoC. The event is open to all PhD students and junior post-doctoral researchers in the field and we actively solicit your submissions and participation.

For more information on Programme and the Call For Papers, visit the RobotDoC-PhD 2012 webpage

Keynote speakers

Accepted papers

All accepted submissions will be published on a CD-ROM with a DOI, and selected for either oral or poster presentation at the conference. Authors of the best works will be invited to submit a revised and extended paper for publication in a special issue of the Paladyn Journal of Behavioral Robotics, with a further peer review stage.

7th International Symposium Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AAIA'12)

The AAIA'12 is organised in Wrocław, Poland, September 9-12, 2012. This conference will bring researchers, developers, practitioners, and users to present their latest research, results, and ideas in all areas of artificial intelligence. Special schemes for obtaining fee reductions are available to those participants who want to combine ICANN 2012 with AAIA'12. Please contact the organizers if you wish to register to both Conferences.

META-NET Workshop

Context in Machine Translation

Lausanne, Switzerland, September 10, 2012.

Machine Translation (MT) can be considered to be one of the most challenging tasks computer science has ever taken. Statistical methods have been increasingly successful in providing efficiently MT solutions for many language pairs. However, there is a lot of room for improvement regarding the quality of translations. One central reason for the failures is that current systems take the context into account only in a limited manner. This is particularly true for multimodal contexts.

This META-NET workshop is organized to foster exchange of ideas and results which combine machine translation and multilinguality challenges with artificial neural networks and machine learning, and multimodal processing.
