International Workshop on Reliability Engineering Methods for Autonomous Robots – REMARO 2024

at ETAPS 2024 (, 6-11 April, 2023 (one day). Luxembourg City, Luxembourg 

The goal of this workshop is to discuss challenges in the development of autonomous systems in open environments (robotics systems), for example in underwater or service robots.  Autonomy is understood broadly and refers to: 

  • Mission Planning and decision-making
  • Navigation, path planning, control 
  • Adaptive control, deep control 
  • Learning, Active Learning, Reinforcement Learning 
  • Perception (object recognition, object tracking, pose estimation, localization, mapping) 
  • Etc. 

The focus of the workshop is to discuss methods that support quality assurance for the above kind of systems, including verification, specification, testing, test data generation, etc. 

The REMARO event aims at bringing domain aspects of software development for autonomous robots acting in open environments to the ETAPS community as the domain of interest.

Important Dates 

Submission Deadline: January 10 
Notification for Authors: January 19  
Camera ready: January 28 

Submissions and Proceedings 

The papers will be peer reviewed. We will publish the proceedings on as a volume of proceedings.  

The speakers can decide whether their paper is to be included in the proceedings. Three options are available: (1) a full paper for the workshop proceedings, at most 6 pages excluding references, (2) a 1-page length abstract to be included in the proceedings, or (3) a talk proposal not to be included in the proceedings. 

Full paper submissions and abstracts should be formatted following the CEURART LaTeX template linked here.

The talk proposals (option number 3) can be sent in any format and size.  The talk proposals will be assessed for fitness for the workshop, and no written review will be provided for them.
