Dear colleagues,

please let me remind you about the upcoming deadline of the SSRR 2012.

The deadline for papers for the IEEE International Symposium on Safety Security and Rescue Robotics are due August 23. 
Please find further information 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 robots
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
--> Outstanding papers with field results will be invited to the special issue of Journal of Field Robotics (JFR) on 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!
