Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS)
June 18-22, 2016, University of Michigan

Paper Submission Deadline: January 28, 2016
Acceptance Notification: April 22, 2016

The 2016 “Robotics: Science and Systems” Conference will bring together researchers working on algorithmic and mathematical foundations of robotics, robotics applications, and analysis of robotic systems. The conference will be held June 18-22, 2016 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

To give attendees an opportunity to see the best research in all areas of robotics, the conference will be single-track and the program will include invited talks as well as oral and interactive presentations of refereed papers. The three-day main session will be preceded by two days of workshops and tutorials. Every effort is being made to keep conference expenses affordable, particularly for student attendees.

Contributed Papers

RSS covers both the "Science" and the "Systems" of robotics, and is actively seeking submissions in areas that have not been traditionally represented at the conference.  

Papers containing original and unpublished work are solicited in all areas of robotics, including (but not limited to) the following: Biological Robotics; Control, Dynamics and Kinematics; Estimation and Learning for Robotic Systems; Field Robotics; Distributed Systems; Human-Robot Interaction and Human-Centered Systems; Manipulation; Mechanisms and Micro/Nano Robotics; Medical Robotics; Mobile Systems and Mobility; Planning and Algorithms; and Robot Perception.

Paper Preparation, Submission and Reviewing Information

Submissions may be up to 8 pages in length, excluding references. They will be evaluated in terms of their technical quality, novelty, significance, potential impact, and clarity.  

Reviewing for RSS 2016 is double-blind and contains a rebuttal phase. The authors will be given 4 days to respond to reviewers' comments. This will happen in the period between March 10 and March 15. Check the main web page of the conference for updates as we get closer to the dates.

Conditional accepts will be used again this year. Authors will be given 10-14 days to improve their paper. This will happen in the period between April 5 and April 19. Authors will be provided with detailed information if this affects their paper.

All papers accepted for presentation at the main conference will be published in online proceedings. Selected papers will be invited for submission to a special issue of International Journal of Robotics Research and a special issue of Autonomous Robots.
