* Call for Participation and Late Breaking Reports *
* 15th IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue 
Robotics 2017 (SSRR 2017) *
* in Shanghai, China; October 11 - 13, 2017 *


Due to popular demand the due date for the Late Breaking Report 
submission has been pushed to September 1st!

=== CfP ===

SSRR is inviting 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.

Submissions of original papers focused on traditional and emerging areas 
and applications in safety, security, and rescue robotics are 
encouraged. All papers will appear in IEEE Xplore. Nominated 
contributions for "Best Paper" and "Best Student Paper" awards and other 
outstanding papers that report field experiments will be considered for 
a special issue of the Journal of Field Robotics. Late-breaking-reports 
will be also considered and included in the program. Submission 
guidelines will be found in the SSRR website.

The conference is hosted by the School of Information Science and 
Technology (SIST) of ShanghaiTech University and the ShanghaiTech 
Automation and Robotics Center (STAR Center). The research university 
was founded in 2013 and is aiming to be a leading institution in China 
and the world by creating a unique open and free academic environment 
which will serve as the cradle that trains future scientists, engineers, 
entrepreneurs, and industrial leaders in information sciences and 
technologies to play key roles in the ongoing economic transformation of 
China and the world. The conference will be held in the brand-new campus 
in the Zhangjiang High-Tech Park of Pudong, Shanghai.

=== Important Dates ===

LBR submission: Sep 1
LBR acceptance:  Sep 5

Final papers due: September  1
Final LBR due: Sep 9
Conference: October 11-13

=== Call for Demos ===

Robot Demonstrations related to the SSRR theme are very welcome. Please 
submit a one page description of how your system will be compelling for 
safety, security, or rescue robot developers and users. Images and video 
of the demo are encouraged. Please send an email to 
soerensch at shanghaitech.edu.cn .

=== Call for Competition Participation ===

There will also be a small competition held in parallel to SSRR 2017. 
The main goal here is to have some rescue robots running around and to 
demonstrate their capabilities in a live arena. The arena will be 
composed out of a few selected standard robot test elements. The 
elements will be at the 60cm scale, that is half the width of a standard 
RoboCup Rescue arena. See the website for more details and links. Any 
ground robot that fits in the arena is welcome - please contact Sören 
Schwetfeger (soerensch at shanghaitech.edu.cn) for details and if you want 
to participate.

Best Regards,

Sören Schwertfeger (General Chair SSRR 2017)
