17th International Symposium on Robotics Research (ISRR)
Sestri Levante (Genova), Italy
12-15 September 2015

Antonio Bicchi and Wolfram Burgard


Deadline for paper submission: April 27, 2015
Notification of paper acceptance: May 31, 2015
Submission of camera-ready papers: July 1, 2015

As the flagship symposium of the International Foundation of Robotics 
Research (IFRR), this 17th edition of ISRR follows up on a long history 
of extraordinary meetings.
The goal of the ISRR Symposia is to bring together active leading 
robotics researchers and pioneers from academia, government, and 
industry to assess and share their views and ideas about the state of 
the art in robotics, and to discuss promising new avenues for future 
All participants are kindly asked to convey the single track and highly 
interactive spirit of ISRR and take part in all sessions so that a 
stimulating and dynamic discussion can be established.
Scientific interaction is the keyword of ISRR, and an interesting social 
program has been crafted to foster the richest discussion amongst 
participants in the most suitable conditions.

The Symposium will be held in an informal setting with a limited number 
of participants to encourage close technical and personal interactions. 
During the four-day Symposium, approximately 45 papers will be 
presented. The meeting will be organized as a single-track meeting, and 
contributions that cover all aspects of robotics research are solicited.Â
Sessions will be organized in themes, and all sessions will provide 
ample opportunity for discussion. As in previous years, the proceedings 
of the Symposium will be published as a Springer STAR series book.
Attendance will be limited. Priority will be given to authors and 
invited participants.

The symposium will be held in Centro Congressi MediaTerraneo in Sestri 
Levante (Genova), Italy, a beautiful village located on the 
Mediterranean Sea coast. Sestri Levante is easy to reach through Genova 
or Pisa.

Scientific interaction is the keyword of ISRR, and an interesting social 
program has been crafted to foster the richest discussion amongst 
participants in the most suitable conditions. Planned activities include:

•    Ample discussion time and interactive sessions
•    A cruise to the charming Cinque Terre district
•    A visit to the Robotics Labs of the Italian Institute of 
Technology in Genoa
•    A Banquet in one of the Palazzi dei Rolli in Genoa (where 
noblest families used to host the most distinguished guests of Genoa's 
Marine Republic)Â

For those accompanying the participants who have more free time, and for 
those who can stay a bit longer, the region offers a cornucopia of art 
and natural wonders.
Just about every few kilometers on the coast a pictoresque village 
offers different landscapes and activities: go shopping in Rapallo or 
Alassio; trek, bike and climb in Finale Ligure; watch famous views and 
celebrities in Portofino; go to the largest European Aquarium in Porto 
Antico in Genoa, or visit its noble palaces and museums.

Papers representing authoritative reviews of established research areas 
as well as papers reporting on new areas and pioneering work are sought 
for presentation at the Symposium. In addition to the open call, a well 
selected number of leading researchers will be solicited to contribute 
by personal invitation.

A “BEST OF ROBOTICS 2014-2015” session track will be introduced 
in ISRR’15. A number of research papers which have been selected for 
the most prestigious awards in the last year will be invited for 
presentation. This will be a unique possibility to have a synoptic view 
of what the robotics community considers to be the best of robotics 
research, and put it in a larger context.   Â

Each submission will be reviewed by members of the Symposium Program 
Committee. The quality of the papers and the related presentations are a 
central priority for ISRR. Authors new to ISRR are particularly 
encouraged to submit.
Submitted papers must follow the LaTeX format given by the template for 
the Springer STAR series proceedings. It is downloadable from the 
submission Web page. Papers may not exceed 16 pages in this format. All 
papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through the ISRR 
2015 online submission system available at http://isrr.confmaster.net.

Sestri Levante is one of the most beautiful and popular resorts in 
Italy, and ISRR'15 has been placed in the season when you can enjoy the 
Mediterranean summer at its best.  As a consequence, accommodations are 
not always easy, and early booking is highly recommended.
