Second International Workshop on  Robotics Software Engineering

Co-located with ICSE 2019

May 27, 2019, Montréal, QC, Canada

Robotics is one of the most challenging domains for software engineering (SE).

Deploying even simple applications requires integrating solutions from experts

of various domains, including navigation, path planning, manipulation,

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 security. 

The goal of RoSE 2019 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 2019 will solicit 

contributions from both academic and industrial participants, thus fostering

active synergy between the two communities.

RoSE 2019 welcomes the following types of contributions: 

* research papers presenting novel contributions on advancing software

engineering in robotics (max. 8 pages);

* challenge showcase papers describing robotics challenges considered

insufficiently addressed from an industry perspective (max. 6 pages);

* lessons learned papers describing lessons learned in the collaboration

between the two communities of SE and robotics (max. 6 pages);

* vision papers on the future of software engineering in robotics

(max. 4 pages);

* tool and project papers on SE in robotics (max. 4 pages).

Workshop papers must follow the ICSE 2019 Format and Submission Guidelines,

but will use a single blind submission process. All submitted papers will be

reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and

clarity by the program committee. All workshop papers should be submitted

electronically in PDF format through the EasyChair website at Accepted papers will become

part of the workshop proceedings.

Important Dates 

* Submission deadline: February 01 2019

* Notification of acceptance: March 01 2019

* Camera-ready version: March 15 2019
