[2nd CFP] AAAI-2004 Workshop on "Anchoring Symbols to Sensor Data"

===================================================================== AAAI-2004 Workshop on "Anchoring Symbols to Sensor Data"
====================================================================The anchoring problem is an important aspect of the connection between symbolic and sensory based processes in autonomous robotic systems. Anchoring is the problem of how to create, and to maintain in time, the connection between the symbol- and the signal-level representations of the same physical object.
Anchoring must necessarily occur in any physically embedded system that comprises a symbolic reasoning component. A typical example is the problem of connecting, inside an autonomous robot, the symbol used by a planner to refer to a particular door, say `door-21', to the vision or laser data that correspond to that door. Anchoring must also occur in a multiple robot system, since the robots must agree about the meaning of the symbols used to refer to perceived objects in the environment. Anchoring is also needed for efficient human-robot interaction.
This worskhop is the third in a series of events whose aim is to bring together researchers from different disciplines who need to find practical solutions to the anchoring problem. In addition, this workshop will aim at making contact with all communities that address tasks in which anchoring is present even if it is not mentioned explicitly.
We solicit submissions of full papers which report novel research results, as well as short interest statements.
- Submissions due: March 12, 2004 - Workshop chairs: S. Coradeschi and A. Saffiotti - Detailed info: http://www.aass.oru.se/Agora/AAAI04 /
