About this book

The International Symposium on Experimental Robotics (ISER) is a series of biennial symposia which began in 1989, and is sponsored by the International Foundation of Robotics Research (IFRR). The goal of ISER is to provide the robotics community with a forum for research driven by creative ideas, bold visions, new systems, and novel applications of robotics, emphasizing experimental work. The tradition in ISER is to foster scholarly work that either addresses validation of theoretical paradigms through careful experimentation or contributes to the creation of novel experimental platforms that in turn inspire new theoretical developments. The ISER symposia are conceived to bring together in a small group setting researchers from around the world who are at the forefront of experimental robotics research, to assess and share their views and ideas about the state of the art and to discuss promising new avenues for future research exploration in experimental robotics. The ISER meetings are organized around oral technical presentations in a single-track format.

This volume includes the complete collection of the contributions presented at the symposium, with authoritative introductions to each section by the chairs of the corresponding sessions.
