                       CALL FOR PAPERS
                       ===============

 1995 IEEE International Symposium on Assembly and Task Planning

                         (ISATP'95)

         - Towards Flexible and Agile Manufacturing -

         August 10-11, 1995, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

       Sponsored by the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society
             To be held in conjunction with IROS'95

Assembly and task planning plays a key role for integrating design and
manufacturing. This field has the potential to produce automated and
interactive tools which significantly impact the development of
advanced manufacturing as well as concurrent engineering environments.
The broad theme for this symposium is "Toward Flexible and
Agile Manufacturing", recognizing the need for developing
manufacturing environments geared to meet the future demands of the
industry. The symposium will provide an international forum which
draws together researchers working on different aspects of the problem
of assembly and task planning in the robotics and manufacturing
context. Papers are solicited for all aspect of theories,
applications, and case studies related to assembly and task planning
as applied to robotics and manufacturing.

Topics include but are not limited to:

- Design for Assembly                     - Assembly Representations
- Assembly Sequence Planning              - Tolerance Accumulation in Assembly
- Assembly Cost Evaluation                - Assembly Stability and Fixtures
- Part Feeding and Reorientation          - Workcell Planning
- Action Planning                         - Fine Motion Planning
- Gross Motion Planning                   - Sensor Planning
- Distributed Planning                    - Profuction Planning
- Manufacturing Process Planning          - Scheduling
- Planning under Uncertainty              - On-line Planning and Reaction
- Plan Monitoring                         - Error Detection and Recovery
- Applications
