The 8th International Conference on Robotics in Education (RiE) is aimed at the presentation and discussion of the latest results and methods in the fields of research and development in Educational Robotics. Researchers are brought together that work on new applications, the latest products, or systems and components for using robotics in schools, in universities and in informal education. The objective is to provide an insight into the state-of-the-art of Educational Robotics to participants from both academic and school education.

All accepted papers that meet the requirements and standards of Springer will be published as a special volume in the prestigious Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing Series. The proceedings will be available via the SpringerLink digital library. The volumes of this series are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services including ISI Proceedings, EI-Compendex, DBLP, SCOPUS, Google Scholar and Springerlink.
