IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR
2015) Oct. 18-20, 2015 Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN

The 13th IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue
Robotics will be hosted at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.
SSRR 2015 seeks to continue its tradition of attracting cutting-edge papers
in the theory and practice of robotics and automation for all types of
safety, security, and rescue applications such as disaster response,
mitigation and recovery; rapid and secure inspection of critical
infrastructure; detection of chemical, biological and radiological risks,
and operations in these dangerous sites.

As in previous years, SSRR 2015 is soliciting Late Breaking Reports that
contribute novel directions or work which has not been fully analyzed or
explored. Late Breaking Reports are reviewed and the relevance of the
material to the SSR domains must be clear.

Topics include but are not limited to:

   - Autonomous search and rescue
   - Casualty assessment, care and extraction
   - Communications for reliable data transfer
   - Detection and mitigation of chemical, biological, radiological,
nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) events
   - Emerging technologies (sensors, power sources, micro robots, etc)
   - Humanitarian applications (Was Humanitarian demining)
   - Human-robot interaction and interfaces
   - Inspection of critical infrastructure
   - Intelligent behaviors to improve robot performance and survivability
   - Manipulation
   - Mechanisms, Mechatronics, and Embedded Control
   - Multi-agent coordination
   - Novel sensors and mechanisms
   - Nuclear decommissioning
   - Perception for navigation, hazard detection, and victim identification
   - Robotics and Automation for safety and security
   - Safety standards for robots and systems
   - Sensing and sensor fusion
   - SLAM in complex and/or extreme environments
   - Structural assessment
   - Telemedicine
   - Unmanned ground, aerial, and marine vehicles

Author Instructions:
Late Breaking Reports (LBR) are limited to two (2) camera-ready pages
including figures are allowed for each report. Paper formatting guidelines
and templates can be found:

Late Breaking Reports should be submitted by email to ssrrLBR at gmail.com
with the subject line "SSRR 2015 Late Breaking Report Submission - [Last
Name of Primary Author]".
Important Dates:

   - Aug 31, 2015 Submission of late breaking reports
   - Sep 15, 2015 Notification of acceptance
   - Sep 22, 2015 Submission of final papers
   - Oct 18-20, 2015 Conference
