ERLARS 2009 - 2nd International Workshop on
Evolutionary and Reinforcement Learning for Autonomous Robot Systems

Call for Papers

Learning is essential for an autonomous robot system. The range of unexpected situations it can handle while performing its task depends on its ability to adapt. Recent developments have taken autonomous robots beyond industrial settings, for example at home as toys and cleaners. However, production models usually interact with their environment following a fixed control strategy, which limits their range of application. More adaptable robots require control strategies that learn more and better from interactions with their environment.
The ERLARS workshop addresses the challenge to develop efficient and versatile learning architectures for autonomous robot systems, with the main focus on adequate evolutionary and reinforcement learning algorithms.

Relevant Topics

Papers are invited on all aspects of learning methods for the control of autonomous robot systems, including, but not limited to:

Paper format

Please see the authors' section for formatting instructions.

Springer Book Chapter

Authors of the best articles accepted at ERLARS 2009 will be invited to submit an extended version of their article as a book chapter in an edited book in the Springer Studies in Computational Intelligence. This has already been confirmed by the series editor. More details will be given later.
