Ranking & Metrics Impact Score is a novel metric devised to rank conferences based on the number of contributing the best scientists in addition to the h-index estimated from the scientific papers published by the best scientists. See more details on our methodology page.

Research Impact Score: 0.50
Contributing Best Scientists: 4
H5-index:
Papers published by Best Scientists 5
Research Ranking (Computer Science) 576
Research Ranking (Electronics and Electrical Engineering) 341
Research Ranking (Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering) 87

Conference Call for Papers

The International Symposium on Experimental Robotics is a forum dedicated to experimental research in robotics. ISER is a single-track symposium focusing on presentations of the latest work in experimental robotics. The symposium encourages submission of papers with validation of robotics theory and principles by physical experiments or new experimental paradigms and designs that facilitate theoretical advances.

Overview

Top Research Topics at International Symposium on Experimental Robotics?

  • Robot (41.34%)
  • Artificial intelligence (35.82%)
  • Computer vision (23.20%)

The topics of Robot, Artificial intelligence, Computer vision, Control engineering and Control theory are the focal point of discussions in the conference. The concepts on Robot presented in the event can also apply to other research fields, including Task (project management), Simulation and Human–computer interaction. Haptic technology is a major topic of Simulation research presented in International Symposium on Experimental Robotics.

International Symposium on Experimental Robotics focuses on Artificial intelligence research which is adjacent to topics in Terrain. International Symposium on Experimental Robotics focuses on Computer vision as well as the interrelated topic of GRASP. Control engineering and Control (management) are closely related fields of research discussed in it.

The event primarily discusses Control theory topics, particularly Control theory, Actuator, Torque and Trajectory. Topics in Mobile robot explored in International Symposium on Experimental Robotics were investigated in conjunction with research in Real-time computing and Motion planning.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • RGB-D Mapping: Using Depth Cameras for Dense 3D Modeling of Indoor Environments (719 citations)
  • Autonomous Inverted Helicopter Flight via Reinforcement Learning (447 citations)
  • Mobile Robot Miniaturisation: A Tool for Investigation in Control Algorithms (439 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at International Symposium on Experimental Robotics:

The most cited papers primarily focus on research topics in Robot, Artificial intelligence, Computer vision, Mobile robot and Control theory. The conference articles explore topics in Robot which can be helpful for research in disciplines like Control engineering, Task (project management), Simulation and Human–computer interaction. The studies on Artificial intelligence discussed at the most cited articles can also contribute to research in the domains of Field (computer science), Simple (abstract algebra) and Terrain.

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2016 edition, 8.16% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 41.48% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 14.81% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 24.44% of all publications and 19.26% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
