Dear All,

We would like to inform you about SSRR2011 again.
The extended deadline is 6/30. 
It is a rigid deadline.




                               CALL FOR PAPERS
                     9th IEEE International Symposium on
              Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR2011)
                            November 1 - 5, 2011
                                Kyoto, Japan
                  http://ssrr2011.mif.sys.okayama-u.ac.jp/

OBJECTIVE

   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

   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
       structures
     * Perception for navigation, hazard detection, and victim
       identification
     * Mapping of complex environments (2-D, 3-D, GIS integration, etc)
     * Manipulation capabilities (hazards, payloads, obstacles, doors,
       etc)
     * Communications for reliable data transfer (tether management,
       radio, etc)
     * Intelligent behaviors to improve robot performance and
       survivability
     * 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

PAPER SUBMISSION

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