                             CALL FOR PAPERS
                   9th IEEE International Symposium on
            Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR2011)
                      31 October - 5 November, 2011
                              Kyoto, Japan


 The 2011 IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and
Rescue Robotics (SSRR2011) is dedicated to identifying and solving the
key issues necessary to field capable robots across a variety of
challenging applications. This ninth symposium (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. 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.


 Topics for papers and demonstrations include:
   * Robot performance requirements and technical solutions for
     applications of SSRR (urban search and rescue, CBRN hazard
     detection/mitigation, explosive ordinance disposal, physical
     security, surveillance, etc)
   * Locomotion for ground, aerial, aquatic, indoor, and collapsed
   * Perception for navigation, hazard detection, and victim
   * Mapping of complex environments (2-D, 3-D, GIS integration, etc)
   * Manipulation capabilities (hazards, payloads, obstacles, doors,
   * Communications for reliable data transfer (tether management,
     radio, etc)
   * Intelligent behaviors to improve robot performance and
   * Human-robot interfaces for improved remote situational awareness
   * Autonomous search and exploration
   * Multi-robot teams and mixed human-robot teams
   * Training methods and other personnel issues
   * Standards of robots and systems
   * Evaluation and performance metric of robotic systems
   * Emerging technologies (sensors, power sources, micro robots, etc)
   * Emergency management issues related to robotics
   * Mechanisms, Mechatronics, and Embedded Control
   * Disaster simulation
   * Risk management, Risk assessment, Risk Communication, Crisis
     Management, and Disaster Resilience


 Full papers should be submitted via the submition page at the symposium
 home page (http://ssrr2011.mif.sys.okayama-u.ac.jp/). Paper should be up
 to six pages includes figures.

 All accepted papers are published by IEEE.


          15.     June   2011 Deadline for submission of paper
          31.     July   2011 Notification of acceptance
          31.   August   2011 Submission of camera ready papers
