CALL FOR PAPERS, SYMPOSIA, WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS

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 via Paperplaza. 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.

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 special symposia celebrating 50 years of robotics. Each symposium will be associated with a subfield of robotics. As described on the website, there is considerable flexibility in organizing each symposium session. For additional information please contact the symposia chair and committee members according to the instructions on the website. We invite proposals for special symposia. Proposals for organizing symposia should be submitted through Paperplaza as "Invited Sessions".

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.

EXHIBITS

There will be an exhibition site at the conference. Further information for prospective exhibitors is available on the website.
