Guidelines for Submission
Manuscripts can be submitted until the expiry of the deadline. Submissions must be previously unpublished and may not be under consideration elsewhere.
Papers should be formatted according to the guidelines for authors (see: http://www.sciencepublishinggroup.com/journal/guideforauthors?journalid=220). By submitting your manuscripts to the special issue, you are acknowledging that you accept the rules established for publication of manuscripts, including agreement to pay the Article Processing Charges for the manuscripts. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically through the online manuscript submission system at http://www.sciencepublishinggroup.com/login. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal and will be listed together on the special issue website.
Published Papers
The special issue currently is open for paper submission. Potential authors are humbly requested to submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript by clicking here.
The field of robotics has grown tremendously in the last decade as new research has demonstrated its relevance and impact to fields as diverse as manufacturing, planetary exploration, medicine, healthcare, military, and consumer products. We have reached a turning point where this technology is moving from the purview of a handful of specialists (Mars rovers) to the general public (robotic car, household robots, elderly care, and unmanned search and rescue).

The proposed Special Issue in Journal will provide an integrated platform that will embrace the multi-disciplinary nature of robotics. The Journal will be directed towards advanced studies related to automation and robotics and include core areas of concentration from each of the disciplines: Swarm Robotics, Robot actuation, locomotion, manipulation, dynamics, control (Mechanical Engineering); sensors, vision, motors (Electrical Engineering); artificial intelligence, human robot interactions (Computer Science).

This Special Issue will provides aid in promoting close cooperation and exchange of technical information among its Members and Affiliates, and to this end holds meetings for the presentation of papers and their discussion, sponsors appropriate periodicals and special technical publications, and through its committees studies and provides for the needs of its members and affiliates.

Vision–Our Vision would be to become the most recognized and respected global organization in Robotics and Automation, Swarm Robotics.
