[conference announcement]
5th European Conference on Mobile Robots, September 7-9, 2011. Örebro, Sweden.


The primary aim of ECMR is to establish a biannual European forum, internationally open, allowing researchers throughout Europe to become acquainted with the latest accomplishments and innovations in advanced mobile robotics and mobile human-robot systems.

ECMR 2011 will be held in the city of Örebro, Sweden. The first ECMR meeting was held in September 2003 in Radziejowice, Poland, followed by ECMRs in September 2005 in Ancona, Italy; September 2007 in Freiburg, Germany; and September 2009 in Mlini/Dubrovnik, Croatia. A priority of ECMR is to attract young researchers to present their work to an international audience. ECMR is organized in single track mode to favour discussions. ECMR 2011 will continue this policy and will provide panel sessions and original presentations about research in progress. 


Most aspects of robotics research and machine intelligence are involved, including (but not limited to) the following topics: multi-sensor fusion, localization, map building, navigation, active perception, behaviour-based robotics, path and task planning, learning and adaptation, robot vision, human-robot interaction, cognitive robotics, experimental evaluation and benchmarking, 3D sensing, new applications for mobile robotics, etc.  ECMR will provide keynote sessions, a panel session and original presentations about research in progress and it will be organized in single track mode to favour discussions. 


The keynote speeches of ECMR 2011 will be given by Prof. Markus Vincze from the Vienna University of Technology, Austria, and Prof. Per-Erik Forssén from Linköping University, Sweden. 


Authors are invited to submit original contributions in English not exceeding 6 pages of the two column conference format. Further instructions and submission details will be available at the conference website 


All papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, available upon arrival at the meeting. As in the past, it is planned to publish expanded and revised versions of selected papers in a special issue of an international journal.
