This is a FINAL deadline extension.


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).
