euRathlon Workshop on Field Robotics - Call for Posters
24-25 September 2013, Berchtesgaden, Germany,
in conjunction with the euRathlon 2013 competition

This is the last call for posters in the interactive session of the 
We are pleased to offer an opportunity not only to participate in the 
workshop as an attendee, but also to present a poster during the 
interactive session to discuss ideas with other workshop participants.

This workshop is focused on euRathlon scenarios and applications, and 
intended primarily for student and researcher competitors or teams 
planning to compete in euRathlon. The workshop is structured in two parts: 
first, expert content will be delivered by invited keynote speakers and 
end users, i.e. professionals working in respective scenario fields like 
fire fighting and rescuing operation. Second, the workshop participants 
will have the opportunity to present their own work in the interactive 
session of the workshop.

We invite submissions which focus on topics closely related to the 
competition: on topics of unmanned ground, air, sea vehicles and their 
combination on real systems (outdoor activity, no simulation!).  We are 
stressing real applications. We welcome submissions from non-competitors, 
if they are within the scope. We encourage especially young researchers to 
participate. There will be the possibility to earn study credits (doctoral 
or basic) from the workshop. For students we also provide the possibility 
of getting travel support.

Posters for the interactive session should be submitted via email in PDF 
format to Prof. Juha Röning. For the review process, the material for the 
posters is kindly requested to be provided in the from of a short paper. 
Submissions should be no more than 4 ISO A4 pages long, including figures, 
tables and references. Please to use IEEE format. Templates available in 
Latex and Word.

To apply for a travel grant make a free format application giving reasons 
why support should be given to you. (Include your curriculum vitae and a 
description of ongoing research related to field robotics. Selection 
criteria include applicant.s motivation and capability for successfully 
entering the competitions in the future.)
