Rescue Robotics Camp 2013 – Going 3D
Oct 21-23, 2013   Linköping, Sweden

collocated with IEEE International Symposium on Safety,
Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR 2013)

The Rescue Robotics Camp 2013 is based on a long tradition
of providing state-of-the-art techniques in rescue robotics to
young researcher and students participating in competition
such as RoboCup. The camp focuses on a sound understanding
of the techniques by the participants, as well as the development
of open source software modules based on ROS that the
participants can immediately  reuse in their daily work. The
main theme of the 2013 edition is * perception and navigation
in challenging 3D environments*. These topics are on the one
hand vibrant research areas and on the other hand crucial
capabilities for rescue robots.

* Sachin Chitta, Willow Garage,  USA
* Andreas Nüchter, Universität Würzburg, Germany
* Simon Lacroix, LAAS/CNRS, France
* François Pomerleau, ETH Zürich, Switzerland
* Johannes Pellenz, Bundeswehr, Germany (t.b.c).
* Stefan Kohlbrecher, TU Darmstadt, Germany (t.b.c.)

* 3D Perception
* 3D Mapping
* Exploration
* Path Planning and Navigation in 3D Environments
* Software Architectures for Rescue Robots

The program is balanced between lectures, reports from
practitioners and practical lab work.   There will  be
separate tracks for beginners and advanced participants

SSRR 2013
The camp will be collocated with the IEEE International
Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics. In
order to allow the participants a close interaction with
the rescue robotics research community a reduced fee
for the SSRR 2013 will be granted.

The participation is free of charge. Interested participants
are requested to submit an application via email to
ssrr13 at ist.tugraz.at  with:
* a curriculum vitae
* a one-page motivation letter
* list of up to 5 publications
