Important: Regarding travel for those coming from out of the country to Arizona, conference attendees must carry on them--at all times--passport and visa documents. If only a passport is required for your travel to Arizona, then you only need to carry your passport with youat all times. However, if you are required to have both a passport and visa, then you must carry both with you at all times. These requirements are necessary given new laws in Arizona that were recently passed.

The focus of the ROSE conference series is on sensing and perception modalities, as well as their impact on autonomous robotics and intelligent systems development and applications. Papers are solicited on all aspects of sensing systems and technologies for robotics and industrial automation, human-robot cooperation, multimodal or distributed sensing, and perception technologies. These include, but are not limited to: sensor controlled systems operation, collaborative manufacturing, inspection and quality control, human and robot interaction, tele-operation, robot manipulation, mobile robotics, rescue robots, swarm robotics, and also on robot sensors and vision, environment monitoring, intelligent sensing, machine vision and image processing, 3D sensing and modeling, signal processing and sensor fusion, new sensor technologies, and distributed sensor networks.

The 2010 edition of the IEEE International Workshop on RObotic and Sensors Environments is sponsored by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society.

ROSE 2010 will take place at the Arizona State University in Phoenix, Arizona,USA, on 15-16 October 2010. Phoenix is the capital and largest city of the state of Arizona. The metropolitan area of Phoenix is known as the Valley of the Sun and is among the warmest major cities in the United States. The region is surrounded by scenic mountains, lakes and desert areas where exciting outdoor activities can be practiced.
