I got the rejection email from AAMAS last week for my paper on task abandonment for my bounty hunting system. However, I sort of was expecting this as it needs some more theoretical basis. So, I have to work on that.
In the mean time there is still IROS! That is in Korea :). The paper is due March 1st and I just started working on getting the code written for that. But this is a fun paper as it is combining cloud robotics (can’t stand that name!) and my bounty hunting work. So, I’m giving myself a lightning fast tutorial on ROS, raspberry pi, and the pioneer 3dx robot! Plan is to get the base system working by friday so next week we can start doing experiments and collecting results. Then the week before the paper is due we can write it! So, I think we will have just enough time to pull it off. At least this paper seems likely to be accepted as it both cloud robotics and bounty hunting are very cutting edge and putting it all on an actual robot should seal the deal :)! So, hopefully I’ll be going to Korea in October!
