TAROS-05 is a platform for robot researchers with a wide range of interests from the U.K., Europe and worldwide. TAROS welcomes paper submissions on a wide range of topics related to the principles and practice of robotics. A list of exemplar topics can be found below.

TAROS-05 welcomes submissions from senior researchers and research students alike, and will specifically provide opportunities for research students and young research scientists to present their work to the scientific community.

TAROS-05 will be held in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College, London, 12th-14th September 2005. On campus accommodation will be available, and there are many local hotels for this central location in South Kensington, near to the Science, Natural History and Victoria & Albert Museums and many other attractions, all with excellent public transport links.

The deadline for the submission of papers is 5th May 2005. Instructions for authors and submissions procedure can be found at

Refereed papers from the conference will be published in a proceedings volume, and be made available on the WWW.

TAROS-05 will incorporate papers from the Biro-Net symposium as an integrated session. Biro-Net will sponsor up to five bursaries for authors of papers accepted to TAROS-05 with a content relevant to the biological or materials sciences.
