CALL FOR PAPERS, WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS

The 2012 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and 
Systems (IROS 2012) will be held in Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal, during 
October 7-12, 2012. The theme of the conference will be /Robotics for 
Quality of Life and Sustainable Development/. This edition celebrates 
the IROS Silver Jubilee with a series of special events included in the 
conference technical and social program.

PAPERS

Authors should submit their papers electronically in PDF format via 
PaperPlaza. For the first submission, a manuscript can be of 6-8 pages. 
For the final submission, a manuscript should be of 6 pages, with 2 
additional pages allowed but at an 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.

VIDEOS

Videos of 1.5 to 3 minutes illustrating new and exciting results are 
sought for dedicated video sessions. Videos should be accompanied by an 
extended abstract and should be submitted via the PaperPlaza submission 
site for the conference.

ORGANIZED SESSIONS

Organized sessions provide a forum for focused discussions on new topics 
and innovative applications of established approaches. An organized 
session consists of at least five related papers that must be submitted 
through the regular review process.

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.

There will be areas for exhibitions and robotic competitions at the 
conference. Further information will be available on the conference 
website.
