This conference is a forum for the discussion of the social, regulatory, scientific, and technical aspects of emergency management and robotics for hazardous environment applications. Papers are expected to contain descriptions of new significant work relevant to the conference purpose. Authors will submit a 500 word (or less) abstract for selection for presentation and full-length paper publication. Criteria for selection to submit full-length papers include: originality of work, relevance of topic, validity of method, clarity and conciseness of communication. Travel assistance grants are available for student presenters. There will also be an award for the best student paper.
