The deadline for submissions to FSR 2009 has been extended to Sunday 
March 15th Midnight Pacific Standard

Evidently there were several other conferences including IROS whose 
deadlines were extended to collide
directly with ours. We have a large number of requests for extensions 
that can only be accommodated
equitably by extending the deadline for all. Authors who have already 
submitted may feel free to submit
improvements to their papers if they desire.

As a reminder, the conference will be held on MIT campus July14-16. We 
are taking every measure to make
sure it remains affordable, especially for students.

More details on the conference are included below.

The 7th International Conference on Field and Service Robotics (FSR'09) 
will be held in Cambridge Massachusetts, USA on July 14-16 2009.

The conference will provide a forum for researchers, professionals and 
manufacturers to exchange up-to-date technical knowledge and experience. 
In addition to the technical sessions, there will be plenary and invited 
sessions. We invite papers describing original work in a number of 
technical areas, including:

• Mining, Agriculture and Forestry Robotics
• Construction Robots
• Search and Rescue Robotics
• Cleaning, Floor and Lawn Care Robotics
• Security Robotics
• Medical and Health Care Robotics
• Entertainment Robotics
• Autonomous Vehicles for Land, Air and Sea
• Planetary Surface Exploration Robots
• Intelligent Automobiles

We also invite papers on technologies related to the above applications.


Selected papers will be considered for publications on the following 
- Special issue of the International Journal of Robotics Research
- Special issue of the Journal of Field Robotics
In addition, a book version of the Conference Proceedings will be 
published by Springer-Verlag in their STAR series.


The conference will be held on the MIT campus in Cambridge. In addition 
to reserved blocks in nearby hotels, we expect to be able to offer 
campus accommodation as a lower cost alternative.


Prospective authors should consult the conference web site

submission procedure.
