[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for Papers: Robotics Science and Systems (RSS 2018) - Submission Site Now Open

Maurice Fallon-3
** Paper Submission System Now Open **

The 2018 Robotics: Science and Systems Conference will bring together
researchers working on all aspects of robotics including scientific
foundations, applications, and analysis of robotic systems. We seek your
best work in all areas of robotics and solicit papers that cover both
the Science and the Systems of robotics.

The conference will be single-track, and the final program will be the
result of a thorough review process to give attendees an opportunity to
see the most exciting research in all areas of robotics. Submissions
will be evaluated in terms of their novelty, technical quality,
significance, potential impact, and clarity.

The program will include invited talks as well as oral and poster
presentations of refereed papers. The three-day main session will be
followed by two days of workshops and tutorials. Every effort is being
made to keep the conference affordable, particularly for student attendees.

This year, we are especially excited to showcase the following two
themes via special sessions at the conference:

- Field Robotics: Underwater Robotics, Aerial/Space Robotics,
Agricultural and Mining Robotics, Building and Construction,
Environmental Monitoring, Autonomous Vehicles
- Mechanisms and Design: Humanoids, Hands, Legged Systems, Snake Robots,
Novel Actuators, Reconfigurable Robots, MEMS/NEMS, Micro/Nanobots, Novel
Sensors, Haptics, Tactile Interfaces, Soft Robots, Wearable Robots,
Design Optimization of Robotic Systems, Minimality in design

IMPORTANT DATES
- Full Paper Submission: Thursday, February 1, 2018, Anywhere on Earth
- Paper Notification: April 23, 2018
- Main Conference: June 26-28, Workshops: June 29-30

SPECIAL JOURNAL ISSUES
Submissions will be evaluated in terms of their technical quality,
novelty, significance, potential impact, and clarity. All papers
accepted for presentation at the main conference will be published in
the online proceedings. Selected papers will be invited for submission
to special issues of the International Journal of Robotics Research and
Autonomous Robots, and for expedited review as regular submissions to
the IEEE Transactions on Robotics.

AUTHOR INFORMATION
Submissions may be up to 8 pages in length, excluding references. The
review process is double-blind: authors should not be listed on the
title page, and reasonable anonymity should be maintained in the paper.
The conference’s dual submission policy establishes that submissions
that are identical (or substantially similar) to papers that have been
previously published, or accepted for publication, or that have been
submitted in parallel to other conferences are not appropriate for RSS;
Exceptions to this rule are detailed on the page on the RSS 2018 website.
