Humanoids 2016 IEEE-RAS International Conference

The 16th IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots, “Humanoids 2016,” will be held at the Westin Resort & Spa in Cancun, Mexico: 15-17 November 2016. This year’s conference covers many topics, including: anthropomorphic design and control, software and hardware architecture, whole-body dynamics, humanoid locomtion, brain-robot interfaces and much more.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Robotics and Automation Society’s objectives are scientific, literary and educational in character. The Society strives for the advancement of the theory and practice of robotics and automation engineering and science and of the allied arts and sciences, and for the maintenance of high professional standards among its members, all in consonance with the Constitution and Bylaws of the IEEE and with special attention to such aims within the Field of Interest of the Society. This year’s conference covers many topics, including:

·         Principles and technologies for anthropomorphic/bionic design and control

·         Novel materials, devices, mechanisms, energy system for humanoids

·         Software and hardware architecture, system integration

·         Whole-body dynamics, control, sensing, informatics

·         Measuring, modeling and simulating humans

·         Teleoperation, tele-experience, tele-presence using humanoids

·         Humanoid locomotion, manipulation, perception, planning

·         Human and humanoid skills/cognition/interaction

·         Adaptation, learning and cognitive development of humanoids

·         Humanoids for human science and engineering

·         Cyborgs, prostheses, assistive devices and sensor/motor suits

·         Neuro-robotics and brain-robot interfaces for humanoids and humans

·         Social interaction and acceptability
