ISRR 2009   -   Call for Paper


14th International Symposium on Robotics Research


August 31 - September 3, 2009, Lucerne, Switzerland


New Deadline for Paper Submission:  April 15, 2009


---  http://www.isrr2009.ethz.ch/ ---






The goal of the ISRR Symposia is to bring together active leading robotics researchers and pioneers from academia, government, and industry to assess and share their views and ideas about the state of the art in robotics, and to discuss promising new avenues for future research. All participants are kindly asked to convey the single track and highly interactive spirit of ISRR and take part in all sessions so that a stimulating and dynamic discussion can be established. As the flagship symposium of the International Foundation of Robotics Research (IFRR), this 14th edition of ISRR follows up on a long history of extraordinary meetings. 


Symposium Format: 


The Symposium will be held in an informal setting with a limited number of participants to encourage close technical and personal interactions. During the four-day Symposium, approximately 45 papers will be presented. The meeting will be organized as a single track meeting, and contributions that cover all aspects of robotics research are solicited. Sessions will be organized in themes, and all sessions will provide ample opportunity for discussion. As in previous years, the proceedings of the Symposium will be published as a Springer STAR series book. Attendance will be limited. Priority is given to authors and invited participants.




The symposium will be held in Lucerne, one of the most charming and picturesque cities in Switzerland at the boarder of the Lace of Lucerne. Lucerne is easy to reach by direct trains from Zurich Airport.


Paper Solicitation: 


Papers representing authoritative reviews of established research areas as well as papers reporting on new areas and pioneering work are sought for presentation at the Symposium. In addition to the open call, a well selected number of leading researchers will be solicited to contribute by personal invitation. 

Each submission will be reviewed by members of the Symposium Program Committee. The quality of the papers and the related presentations are a central priority for ISRR. Authors new to ISRR are particularly encouraged to submit.


Submission Procedure: 


Papers must be submitted in LaTeX format according to the template for the Springer STAR series proceedings downloadable from the submission webpage. Papers may not exceed 16 pages in this format. All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through the online submission system found on the symposium webpage.
