CogRob 2016


This workshop aims to bring together researchers involved in all aspects of the theory and implementation of cognitive robots, to discuss current work and future directions.

We invite submissions of research papers from all researchers and practitioners interested in AI and robotics, and their integration. We especially welcome discussions and demonstrations of robotic applications and implemented robotic systems that utilize AI methods.

Topics of interests include (but are not limited to):

  • Cognitive robotics,
  • Knowledge representation and reasoning,
  • Planning,
  • Scheduling,
  • Reasoning under uncertainty,
  • Cooperative decision-making,
  • Spatiotemporal reasoning,
  • Diagnostic reasoning,
  • Commonsense reasoning,
  • Combining logical and probabilistic reasoning,
  • Hybrid reasoning.
  • Reasoning about actions and change,
  • Symbol grounding,
  • Machine learning,
  • Cognitive science,
  • Cognitive vision,
  • Perception,
  • Task planning,
  • Human-robot interaction,
  • Natural language understanding,
  • Speech recognition,
  • Game AI for robotics.

Important Dates

Submission deadline:July 29, 2016(June 24, 2016)
Notification date: August 29, 2016(August 1, 2016)
Camera-ready submission: September 16, 2016
Workshop date: October 14, 2016


Potential participants are invited to submit either:
  • a full length regular paper (i.e., a technical paper for describing technically sound, innovative ideas that can advance the state of cognitive robotics; an application paper, where the emphasis is on its impact on the robotic application domain; a system/tool paper, where the emphasis is on its novelty, practicality, usability and availability), or
  • a short paper (i.e., a position paper describing specific questions and issues that the participants feel should be addressed; a demo paper describing a demonstration of a robotic application, system or tool; a technical communication aimed at describing recent developments, and new projects that are not ready for publication as regular papers)

Regular papers must not exceed six (6) pages and short papers must not exceed two (2) pages, excluding references and appendices.

Author names should be included.

Submissions are accepted in PDF format only, using the IROS formatting guidelines (LaTex and MS Word).

Papers must be submitted by the due date via EasyChair:
