[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] The 18th International Symposium on Robotics Research: Call for Participation

Gregory Hager
The 18th International Symposium on Robotics Research

Dec. 11-14, 2017 -- Puerto Varas, Chile

Call for Participation

The International Symposium on Robotics Research (ISRR) was created to
provide a lively, intimate, forward-looking forum for  discussion and
debate about the current status and future trends of robotics.  The 18th ISRR
will continue in this tradition through a program that is intended
to be ideas-based, and interactive in flavor.  We are seeking the
submission of papers that emphasize provocative new ideas, open-ended
themes, and new directions for robotics.  

The program will comprise a combination of invited talks and open
submissions organized into interactive panels, keynotes, and
debates. Accepted papers will be organized into topical panels, and
the panel moderators will work with the authors of accepted papers to
coordinate the presentations and maximize the interactivity of the
session.

The papers and panel discussions will be edited into a proceedings
volume after the workshop, and will appear as a Springer Star Series
volume.

Paper Format

We encourage submissions from all areas of robotics research and
research-based applications. Submitted papers will be reviewed by the
program committee (listed below).  We encourage authors to suggest a topic
area and/or committee member when they submit to ensure we provide the
best feedback possible. A listing of program committee members and
topic assignments can be found on the ISRR 2017 web site:

Papers for ISRR 2017 may be submitted in two formats:

Long Format: We welcome research contributions of up to 10 pages, in
Springer format, that describe thought-provoking ideas or directions
for which there is already established implementation or evidence.
The selected papers will be organized into topical panels for
presentation, debate and discussion.

Blue Sky Ideas Format: In cooperation with the Computing Community
Consortium (CCC), we encourage submissions to a special “Blue Sky
Ideas” track. These are shorter (target length 4 pages) papers which
describe visionary ideas, long term challenges, and opportunities in
research that are outside of the current mainstream topics of the
field and which will provoke discussion or debate.

To encourage researchers to present truly visionary concepts, the CCC
is offering prizes for up to 3 top papers in this special track: first
prize $1000, second prize $750, and third prize $500, to be awarded as
travel grants. Submissions will be judged on the extent to which they
expand the possibilities and horizons of the field or challenge
existing assumptions prevalent in the field.

Paper Submission and Review Timeline

Papers can be submitted via the ISRR 2017 web site:
