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.

Videos of 1.5 to 3 minutes illustrating new and exciting results are 
sought for the IROS 2012 edition. Contributed videos will be 
peer-reviewed and accepted videos will be presented in video 
session/track within the main conference program. Also, the IROS2012 
Best Video Prize (500 Euro and award certificate) will be awarded during 
the Conference.

Please, note that these videos will be regarded and reviewed as separate 
contributed submissions with respect to multimedia attachments to 
contributed papers. A video submission is expected to be a stand-alone 
contribution, self-explanatory thanks to a comprehensive narration that 
makes all the typical aspects of a scientific contribution (background 
work, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusions and follow 
up) available by exploiting a video format instead of a traditional 
paper format. Creative formats and contributions that can foster 
scientific dissemination of robotics research are encouraged. 
High-quality, semi-professional video design and production style is 
expected.


Basic guidelines for these videos are:
- Focus on your own research;
- Include an English narration;
- Introduce the background of the research presented, explaining 
research objectives;
- Describe methodology, materials and main outcomes;
- Present experimental tests so to provide the best evidence of your 
results, e.g. trying to catch in the same images all the key concurrent 
enabling factors of your experiment;

IEEE XPLORE will archive both accepted videos and their 2-page PDF 
summary. This is important because it gives authors the ability to have 
their video-related work to be archived, cited, and downloaded.


IMPORTANT DATES

- Video submission deadline: April 15, 2012
- Notification of acceptance for videos: July 2, 2012
- Final video submission (if required): July 21, 2012
