IEEE/RSJ 2007 International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems 
(IROS 2007)

Sheraton Hotel and Marina, San Diego, California, USA

October 29 – November 2, 2007

Notice - IEEE/RSJ IROS 2007 and Fires in the San Diego Area (Wednesday, 
October 24, 200)

Here is the latest news on the fires in the San Diego area:

(1) Today (Wednesday, October 24, 2007) as of 1520 Hrs (EST) the sky in 
San Diego is blue. The IEEE/RSJ IROS 2007 Sheraton Hotel contact, 
Kimberley Wallace, tells me that it is a lovely day downtown; that 
downtown San Diego is going about its business as normal. Activity 
related to the fires is well out of town.

(2) More on weather, the Santa Anna high winds have reduced. By the 
weekend the winds are supposed to move off shore, making the weather 
more humid.

(3) The IEEE/RSJ IROS 2007 Sheraton Hotel contact, Kimberley Wallace, is 
advising us that the hotel is ready and prepared for IEEE/RSJ IROS 2007.

IEEE/RSJ IROS 2007 is going ahead. Given the circumstances there has 
been disinformation. If delegates need reassured please contact Eddie 
Grant (General Chair), Tom Henderson (Program Chair), Gordon Lee (Local 
Arrangements Chair), or Kimberley Wallace at the hotel.

The IEEE/RSJ IROS 2007 committee chairs look forward to welcoming the 
delegates to the conference.

See you in San Diego.
