   *** CALL FOR PAPERS ***  
Robotica 2013 - 13th International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions

April 24-25, 2013

Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa (ISEL), Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal

The 13th International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions is an international scientific meeting sponsored by the Portuguese Robotics Society in the field of autonomous robotics and related areas, which will take place in conjunction with the 13th Portuguese Robotics Open, a RoboCup Local Event. The conference will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on April 24-25, 2013. Lisbon is the capital of Portugal, one of the oldest cities in the world with a pleasant subtropical-Mediterranean climate.

The conference has been growing continuously for the past decade and is nowadays a truly international forum attracting quality research papers from worldwide. Its technical program is the result of a thorough review process. Due to its growing prestige and impact, the conference proceedings will be indexed in IEEExplore and the conference has also already confirmed for this 13th edition a **Special Issue of selected extended papers in the Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems** from Springer, indexed by the Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge (IF=0.83).

== Submission Guidelines ==

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original research contributions in English. Authors should submit their papers electronically in PDF format via EasyChair:


Six pages in the standard IEEE format are allowed for each paper, including figures. Papers must be written in English following the standard IEEE guidelines.


Reviewing for Robotica 2013 will be *double blind* so authors must remove their names from the submitted papers and should take reasonable care not to indirectly disclose their identity. Three program committee members will be assigned to review each paper. Acceptance will be based on the paper's significance, technical quality, clarity, relevance and originality.

All accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Selected, extended papers will be published in a Special Issue from the Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems from Springer, indexed by Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge (IF=0.83).

Accepted papers will be scheduled for presentation, which requires that at least one of the authors should register at the Conference and present the paper.

Welcome and look forward to seeing you in Robotica 2013!

Kind Regards,

João Calado, ISEL, Portugal
Luis Paulo Reis, University of Minho, Portugal
