       CALL FOR PAPERS

The 2011 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2011) will be held in San Francisco, California, USA, during September 25-30, 2011. The theme of the conference will be Human-Centered Robotics, and its format will feature innovations in the form of interactive multimedia presentations and special-topic symposia celebrating 50 years of robotics.

PAPERS

Authors should submit their papers electronically in PDF format. Six pages in the standard IEEE format are allowed for each paper, including figures.  A maximum of two additional pages is permitted at extra charge. Detailed instructions for paper submission using Paperplaza will be available on the conference web site.

MULTIMEDIA PRESENTATIONS

A selected number of papers will be carefully chosen by the program committee for interactive multimedia presentation, in addition to a brief talk during a regular session. Thus, authors of papers so selected will gain opportunities to engage small groups of conference attendees at a time, showing videos and slides, and intensely discussing their work with their peers.

50 YEARS OF ROBOTICS SYMPOSIA

The conference will feature 12 special symposia celebrating 50 years of robotics. Each symposium will be associated with a subfield of robotics and consist of six papers in the subfield that will be reviewed as regular papers. We invite proposals for special symposia. Proposals for organizing symposia should be submitted
through Paperplaza as "Invited Sessions".

VIDEOS

Videos of 1.5 to 3 minutes illustrating new and exciting results are sought for dedicated video sessions. Videos should be accompanied by an extended abstract and should be submitted via the Paperplaza submission site for the conference.

WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS

Proposals for half-day or full-day tutorials and workshops should include: statement of objectives, intended audience, list of speakers, and list of topics. These should be submitted via the Paperplaza submission site for the conference.

There will be an exhibition site at the conference. Further information for prospective exhibitors will be available from the exhibits chair on the conference web site.
