This book contains the proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and Robotics (ICINCO 2013) which is co-organized by the Reykjavik University (RU) and sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC). ICINCO 2013 is held in cooperation with the ACM Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence (SIGART), the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) and EUROMICRO, co-sponsored by the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) and technically co-sponsored by IEEE Robotics & Automation Society. The ICINCO Conference Series has now become a major forum to debate technical and scientific advances presented by researchers and developers both from academia and industry, working in areas related to Control, Automation and Robotics that benefit from Information Technology. The high quality of the ICINCO 2013 program is enhanced by the four keynote
lectures, given by internationally recognized researchers, namely – Luis Paulo Reis (University of Minho, Portugal), Krzysztof Tchon (Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland), Klaus Schilling (University Würzburg, Germany) and Libor Kral (Head of Unit, European Commission, DG CONNECT, Unit A2 - Robotics, Luxembourg). The meeting is complemented with the Special Session on Intelligent Vehicle Controls & Intelligent Transportation Systems (IVC&ITS). ICINCO received 255 paper submissions, including special sessions, from 50 countries, in all continents. In order to evaluate each submission, a double blind paper review was performed by the Program Committee. In total, 147 papers are published in these proceedings and presented at the conference. Of these, 21 were selected to be published as full papers and 126 were selected as short papers. The full paper acceptance ratio was 8%, and the short paper acceptance ratio was 49%. As in previous editions of the Conference, based on the reviewer’s evaluations and the presentations, a short list of authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for a book that will be published by Springer with the best papers of ICINCO 2013. Conferences are also meeting places where collaboration projects can emerge from social contacts amongst the participants. Therefore, in order to promote the development of research and professional networks, the Conference includes in its social program a Social Event & Banquet in the evening of July 30 (Tuesday). We would like to express our thanks and appreciations to all participants. First of all to the authors, whose quality work is the essence of this Conference. Next, to all the members of the Program Committee and auxiliary reviewers, who helped us with their expertise and valuable time. We would also like to deeply thank the invited speakers for their excellent contribution in sharing their knowledge and vision. Special thanks to the leadership, faculty and staff of Reykjavik University (RU) for hosting the conference in its campus and providing RU facilities and resources. Finally, a word of appreciation for the hard work of the INSTICC team; organizing a conference of this level is a task that can only be achieved by the collaborative effort of a dedicated and highly capable team. We hope that you will enjoy the program and your stay in the beautiful city of Reykjavík. We also hope to see you again next year at ICINCO 2014 in Vienna, Austria.
