IROS 2009 Call For Papers

The 2009 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and  
Systems (IROS) will be held at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis Riverfront  
at St. Louis, Missouri, USA, from October 11 to 15, 2009. St. Louis  
is known as the "Gateway City", as it is seen as the Eastern/Western  
US dividing mark. It’s also called "Gateway to the West" on behalf of  
the many people who migrated west through St. Louis via the Missouri  
River. Following the exploration spirit of St. Louis, the conference  
theme is “Exploring New Horizons in Intelligent Robots and Systems,”  
reflecting the growing spectrum and recent developments in  
intelligent robots and systems.

Papers are solicited in all related areas in robotics and intelligent  
systems. All papers must be in PDF format prepared strictly following  
the IEEE PDF Requirements for Creating PDF Documents for Xplore. The  
standard number of pages is 6 and the page limit is 8 with extra  
payment for pages beyond 6. Detailed instructions are available on  
the conference website. We also solicit organized/special sessions on  
emerging areas and innovative applications of new technologies.  
Papers in organized/special sessions must be submitted through the  
regular submission process, while the proposals must be submitted to  
the co-chairs. Proposals for tutorials and workshops are welcome, and  
are encouraged to address the conference theme, to discuss new  
technologies in robots and intelligent systems, and to attract  
industrial participations.  Proposals must be submitted directly to  
one of the co-chairs of workshop/tutorials.
