Technical Program
Robotics Science and Systems (RSS) brings together researchers working on
algorithmic and mathematical foundations of robotics, robotics
applications, and analysis of robotic systems. The conference is
single-track, and the final program will be the result of a highly
selective review process. Attendees have an opportunity to see the best
research in all areas of robotics. The program will include invited talks
as well as oral presentations of refereed papers.  Every accepted paper
will be accompanied by an e-poster. The preliminary program is now available
online at:

Invited Speakers:
  Zoubin Ghahramani, University of Cambridge
  Anders Sandberg, University of Oxford
  Michelle Simmons, University of New South Wales
  Mandyam Srinivasan, University of Queensland

Workshops and Tutorials
Workshops and tutorials are woven into the fabric of the conference and
will run in the morning sessions with regular papers, plenaries and poster
sessions running in the afternoons. The following are part of RSS this year:

National ICT Australia (NICTA) Student Fellowships
Every effort is being made to keep conference expenses affordable,
particularly for student attendees. We are pleased to announce the National
ICT Australia (NICTA) Student Fellowships to further reduce the cost of student
participation in RSS 2012.  Each student attendee is eligible to apply for funds
to help defray the cost of participation at RSS 2012. To apply you must register
for the conference by 1 June 2012 and indicate your interest in applying for a
fellowship through the registration form. An outline of your reasons for
wishing to attend RSS 2012, a brief overview of your current research and a
list of recent publications will be used by the Organizing Committee to
select fellowship winners.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Sydney!
