Call for Contributions

First International Workshop on Model-Driven Robot Software Engineering (MORSE)
Co-located with the STAF conferences, July 21, 2014, York, GB

Model-Driven Robot Software Engineering (MORSE) is a promising new research 
field combining Software Engineering
and Robotics. Its objectives are to introduce model-driven development 
methodologies for the development of robot
software. At the same time, formal methods should be transfered to robotics 
because "robot apps"
must be certified and verified.

Submissions are encouraged, but not limited, in the following topics:

Robotic Platforms: MDA, Models, Processes and Tools
. Hardware/Software Abstractions and Architectures; Metamodels
. Code-, and Application-Reuse; Managed Redundancy and Deployment
. Variability in Robotic Systems; Self-Adaptiv Robotic Systems; Evolution
. Programming Languages, Paradigms, and Models; DSL

Models for and Modelling in Robotics
. Sensors and Actuators; Sensor Integration
. Knowledge Representation and Reasoning; Context Models
. Ontologies and Conceptual Models for Robotics
. Localization, Mapping, and Navigation
. Autonomous Robots, Robot Learning

Robot Software Ecosystems and Total Cost of Ownership
. Product-Line Development
. End-User Customization and Multi-Tenancy

Model-Driven Quality Assurance of Robotic Systems
. Verification, Validation, Testing, Simulation, Debugging, and Profiling
. Handling Emergent Behavior and Uncertainty; Software Qualities

Software for Multi-Robot Systems
. Cooperative Perception, Planning, Task Allocation, and Coordination
. Robot Swarms, Multi-Agent Robotic Systems
