Call for Papers

First International Workshop on
Robotics Software Engineering
Co-located with ICSE 2018
May 28, Gothenburg, Sweden


Robotics is one of the most challenging domains for software
engineering. Deploying even simple applications requires integrating
solutions from experts of various domains, including navigation, path
planning, manipulation, localization, human-robot interaction, etc.
Integration of modules contributed by respective domain experts is
one of the key challenges in engineering software-centric systems, yet
only one of the cross-cutting software concerns crucial to robotics. As
robots often operate in dynamic, partially observable environments
additional challenges include adaptability, robustness, safety, and

The goal of RoSE 2018 is to bring together researchers from
participating domains with practitioners to identify new frontiers in
robotics software engineering, discuss challenges raised by real-world
applications, and transfer latest insights from research to industry.
RoSE 2018 will solicit contributions from both academic and industrial
participants, thus fostering active synergy between the two

RoSE 2018 welcomes the following types of contributions:
* research papers presenting novel contributions on advancing software
  engineering in robotics (6-8 pages)
* challenge showcase papers describing robotics challenges considered
  insufficiently addressed from an industry perspective (4-6 pages)
* vision papers on the future of software engineering in robotics
  (2-4 pages)

The submission and review process will be done using EasyChair

The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date
the proceedings are made available in the ACM Library. This date may
be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2018. The official
publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related
to published work.

Important Dates

* Submission deadline: February 05 2018
* Notification of acceptance: March 05 2018
* Camera-ready version: March 19 2018
