Reminder: the deadline for papers for the IEEE International Symposium on
Safety Security and Rescue Robotics are due 8/23 at www.ssrr2012.org.

There are three types of papers:

   - regular papers (4-6 pages) that describe original work in SSR or work
   that can be applied to SSR domains
   - center/project papers (2-4 pages) that describe work at centers or
   active multi-institutional projects
   - Outrageous Visions for Computing papers (2-4) that present long-term
   challenges or new ideas outside of the mainstream in computing for SSR

In addition late breaking reports (2 pages) are due Oct. 1.

All paper will appear in IEEExplore and there are 4 paper awards:

   - Best Paper Award
   - Best Student Paper Award
   - Best Non-Traditional Robotics Paper Award
   - Outrageous Visions for Computing in SSRR

The conference will be held Nov 5-8 at Texas A&M University, near Houston,
Texas. The conference includes a tour of Disaster City(r), the largest
simulated disaster site in the world, and keynotes by Dr. Gill Pratt (DARPA
Robotics Challenge), Prof. Hajime Asama (robots for nuclear plant
remediation), and Prof. Satoshi Tadokoro (role of RoboCup Rescue
competition in real disasters).

We look forward to your participation!
