The paper submission deadline is *extended* to *April 30*. 


IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR 
Aug. 6-8, 2018 University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA USA 

The 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue 
Robotics (SSRR2015) is an international forum for furthering the study of 
key issues underpinning the research of safety, security and rescue 
robotics as well as solutions necessary for the fielding of robots and 
sensor systems across a variety of challenging application areas. This year 
it will be hosted at the University of Pennsylvania on August 6-8, 2018. 
 The sixteenth symposium in the series welcomes submissions of *papers*, 
*late-breaking-reports*, and *robot demonstrations* on 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. The symposium will create a unique opportunity for 
development and exchange of research ideas and technical solutions. 

As always, emergency responders and other expected users will be involved 
in presentations and discussions to ensure the practical relevance of 
technology developments for actual usage. 

SSRR encourages submissions of novel and innovative work focused on 
traditional and emerging areas and applications in safety, security, and 
rescue robotics.  Topics for papers, late breaking reports, and robot 
demonstrations, include: 

   - 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 
   - Humanitarian applications 
   - Human-robot interaction and interfaces 
   - Inspection of critical infrastructure 
   - Intelligent behaviors to improve robot performance and survivability 
   - Manipulation 
   - 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 
   - SLAM in complex and/or extreme environments 
   - Telemedicine 

SSRR encourages submissions of novel and innovative papers focused on 
traditional and emerging areas and applications in safety, security, and 
rescue robotics. 

Accepted papers will be presented at the conference as oral oral 
presentations and included in the conference proceedings available on the 
IEEE Xplore digital library. 

Accepted late-breaking-reports will be also considered and included in the 
program in the form of poster presentations. 

Robot Demonstrations are welcome and will be incorporated into the program 
if accepted.  Please submit a one page description of how your 
demonstration will be compelling for safety, security, or rescue robot 
developers and users to see, along with images and a video of the 
demonstration (MPEG file s up to10 MB).
