Apologies for multiple messages and multiple postings. The submission
deadline has been extended.

The deadline for submission of papers for consideration for SSRR08 is
approaching. Please submit full papers for review by June 30. (Under
extenuating circumstances, we can accept full papers a little later, but we
must have an extended abstract by June 30. All reviews will be full paper
reviews. Contact a program chair for more details.)

The 2008 IEEE International Workshop on Safety, Security, and Rescue
Robotics (SSRR2008) is dedicated to identifying and solving the key issues
necessary to field capable robots across a variety of challenging
applications. This year it will be hosted at Tohoku University (October
21-24, 2008). This sixth workshop in the series will address both the
research challenges posed by search and rescue scenarios and the design of
deployable robotic systems that satisfy user-defined requirements. It will
be co-located with NEDO Underground/Subway Surveillance Robot Demonstration
to create a unique opportunity for development and exchange of research
ideas and technical solutions. As always, emergency responders and other
expected users will be involved in presentations and discussions to ensure
the practical relevance of technology developments for actual usage.
