Conference Call for Papers

The International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) is the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society's flagship conference and the premier international forum for robotics researchers to present and discuss their work. Established in 1984 and held annually, the conference joins experts in the field of robotics and automation for technical communications through presentations and discussions. The conference creates a remarkable environment to indulge all the delegates in the frontier of science and technology in robotics and automation.

Overview

Top Research Topics at International Conference on Robotics and Automation?

  • Robot (37.80%)
  • Artificial intelligence (34.66%)
  • Control theory (24.90%)

The foci of the conference are Robot, Artificial intelligence, Control theory, Computer vision and Control engineering. It focuses on Robot research which is adjacent to topics in Simulation. Studies on Artificial intelligence discussed in it link to the field of Machine learning.

The studies on Control theory discussed can also contribute to research in the domains of Kinematics and Motion control. Discussions in the event are anchored in the subject of Computer vision and the similar topic of Simultaneous localization and mapping. The studies in Control engineering featured incorporate elements of Control system, Control (management) and Torque.

It emphasizes research on Mobile robot, which includes concerns such as Mobile robot navigation. Social robot is a major topic of Robot control research presented in it. International Conference on Robotics and Automation focused on Motion planning research but expanded to cover Mathematical optimization.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • A robust layered control system for a mobile robot (6780 citations)
  • YALMIP : a toolbox for modeling and optimization in MATLAB (6326 citations)
  • ROS: an open-source Robot Operating System (5577 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at International Conference on Robotics and Automation:

Robot, Artificial intelligence, Control theory, Mobile robot and Computer vision are the main subjects of interest in the conference publications. While work presented in the conference articles provide substantial information on Robot, it also covers topics in Control engineering, Simulation and Actuator. Issues in Control theory were discussed in the most cited publications, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Kinematics and Motion control.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Composite material

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The conference investigates areas of study like Artificial intelligence, Robot, Computer vision, Control theory and Trajectory. The study on Artificial intelligence presented in International Conference on Robotics and Automation intersects with the topics under Machine learning. Robot research is concerned with Robot kinematics in particular.

Some problems in Computer vision that were presented in it overlapped with concepts under Lidar, Simultaneous localization and mapping and Odometry. The studies tackled, which mainly focus on Control theory, apply to Kinematics as well.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Real-Time Semantic Segmentation With Fast Attention (20 citations)
  • BALM: Bundle Adjustment for Lidar Mapping (17 citations)
  • Recovery RL: Safe Reinforcement Learning With Learned Recovery Zones (16 citations)

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 2021 edition, 5.97% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 20.74% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 13.05% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 16.84% of all publications and 49.37% 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).
