Paper Submission
=================

Original technical paper contributions are solicited for presentation at ICAR 2013. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore conference proceedings. Submission should be 6 to 8 pages following IEEE Xplore formats found at
http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html
Paper submission will be done via EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icar2013
Submitted paper should not be currently under review by another conference or journal. At least one of the authors of the accepted paper will need to present the work at the conference.
Please refer to the paper submission page at www.icar2013.org for further details.

=================
Workshops and Tutorials
=================

Proposals for the organization of workshops and tutorials are solicited for ICAR 2013 that address advanced topics in robotics. Workshops should be focused on active areas of research in order to provide an informal forum for participants to exchange new ideas and new directions in developing research. Tutorials should provide self-contained descriptions of established research topics. The primary criteria for selection are anticipated level of interest, impact, novelty or creativity, and technical background of presenters.
See the "Workshops and Tutorials" section under "Submissions" at www.icar2013.org for further details.
Proposals for workshops and tutorials should be submitted via EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icar2013

================
Special Journal Issue
================

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a special issue of the Journal of Intelligent and Robotics Systems (JINT). Selection of these papers will be based on the originality, significance, and clarity of the work. Extended papers will be subject to the same peer-review process required by JINT before acceptance for publication.
