Dear Robotics Colleagues,

as you might have noticed, the IROS 2015 (www.iros2015.org 
<http://www.iros2015.org>) paper submission has opened on Feb. 1, and 
the submission deadline is March 1.

IROS 2015 will provide robotics experts from around the world with an 
excellent opportunity to network and exchange ideas in a uniquely 
European, beautiful and comfortable environment. Hamburg is not only one 
of the most popular touristic cities in Germany with a rich cultural 
heritage and a high standard of living, but also home to numerous 
high-tech companies like Airbus, HALA, Phillips Medical Systems, NXP, 
Basler Vision, etc. IROS 2015 will be held from Sept. 28 - Oct. 2, 2015, 
a good time of year to visit the historical sights like the 
Neo-Renaissance City Hall and Parliament 
(http://rathaus-3d.hamburg.de/#pano=175), the Fish Auction Hall in the 
style of a Roman basilica, the St. Pauli nightlife district with the 
famous Reeperbahn at its heart, the vibrant harbor with the Old Elbe 
tunnel for pedestrians and Neo-gothic brick warehouse district, the 
beautiful central Alster Lake, Hamburg's landmark St. Michaelis church 
and many more. Due to the recent exchange rate of the Euro, the cost of 
participating will be attractively low for non-Europeans. And you can 
slip in a minibreak at the Munich Octoberfest before the IROS 2015. 
Afterwards, you could visit Berlin or Northern German highlights like 
Bremen and Lübeck, or enjoy Germany's rambling North and Baltic Sea beaches.

At the state-of-the-art Congress Center Hamburg, IROS 15 will offer you 
a wide range of diverse events:

  * high-quality technical sessions introducing the cutting-edge
    technologies in intelligent robotics systems and applications,
  * top scientists and technology leaders giving plenary talks on
    inspiring research topics and experiences with successful startup
  * focussed workshops and tutorials for community building and finding
    direction for future work,
  * robot competitions showing robots & arts, underwater robots, etc. by
    some of the world's top teams,
  * technical tours to research institutes and companies in the area of
    robotics and automation in and around Hamburg,
  * a government forum presenting a global overview of the R&D funding
    activities of the countries and regions active in robotics,
  * an industrial forum for connecting industry and academia,
  * a start-up/VC forum for enhancing entrepreneurship,
  * junior researcher events for meeting leaders, potential
    employers/supervisors, and investors,
  * an exhibition by robotics related companies introducing their latest
    products and components.

To sum up, senior researchers, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, 
robot industries, venture capitalists, and policy makers will all find a 
program perfectly suited to their needs at our conference. Most 
importantly, the meaningful connections between these groups will be the 
exciting part of IROS 2015. Let's jointly shape a promising future for 
intelligent Robotics Systems!

We would appreciate it if you could forward this message to any other 
interested groups or people.

Looking forward to receiving your contributions (papers, 
workshop/tutorial proposals) by March 1.
