From Anis Koubaa via ros-users@

I am happy to announce the call for chapters for the Springer Book on Robot Operating System (ROS) Volume 2 is now open. 

The book will be published by Springer. 

We look forward to receiving your contributions to make this book successful and useful for ROS community. 

In Volume 1, we accepted 27 chapters ranging from beginners level to advanced level, including tutorials, case studies and research papers. The Volume 1 is expected to be released by Feb 2016.
After negotiation with Springer, the authors have benefited of around 80% of discount on hardcopies as an incentive to their contribution, in addition to publishing their work. 

The call for chapters website (see above) presents in detail the scope of the book, the different categories of chapters, topics of interest, and submission procedure. There are also Book Chapter Editing Guidelines that authors need to comply with. 

In this volume, we intend to make a special focus on unmanned aerial vehicle using ROS. Papers that present the design of a new drone and its integration with ROS, simulation environments of unmanned aerial vehicle with ROS and SITL, ground station to drone communication protocols (e.g. MAVLink, MAVROS, etc), control of unmanned aerial vehicles, best practices to work with drones, etc. are particularly sought.

In a nutshell, abstracts must be submitted by February 15, 2016 to register the chapters and to identify in advance any possible similarities of chapter contents. Full chapters submission is due on April 20, 2016.
Submissions and the review process will be handle through EasyChair. Link will be provided soon.

Each chapter will be reviewed by at least three expert reviewers, one at least should be a ROS user and/or developer.
