Contribute

ICRA 2015 seeks contributions in the form of technical papers, workshops and tutorials, entries for the Robot Challenge, and participation in the PhD Forum.

Contributed Papers

Papers reporting on novel research in robotics and automation are invited. All papers will be reviewed using a single-blind peer-review process: authors declare their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but reviewers do not know each other's identities, nor do the authors receive information about who has reviewed their manuscript. The review process is managed by the ICRA Conference Editorial Board.

Prospective authors should submit PDF versions of their paper electronically via the PaperPlaza Conference Management System. Six pages in standard ICRA format are allowed for each paper, including figures. A maximum of two additional pages can be purchased. Authors are invited to submit a video to complement their submission. Detailed instructions for submission are available on the conference website. See also the Call for Papers.

Developing Countries Forum

For the first time at ICRA 2015, a forum will be specifically dedicated to highlighting robotics work in developing countries. An interactive display at the conference will feature information on a diverse array of robotics projects in developing countries around the world. Submissions are invited in a variety of categories, including (but not limited to) research, education, outreach, academic work, industry work, governmental work, and NGO work. A 2-3 page extended abstract describing the project can be submitted via PaperPlaza. See also the Call for Participation: Developing Countries Forum.

Late Breaking Results Poster Session

A new feature for ICRA this year will be a Late Breaking Results Poster Session in which researchers have an opportunity to present recent results. Posters are not peer-reviewed and do not count as publications. Indeed, this session is ideal for researchers to get feedback on their work prior to submitting it for formal publication. Prospective poster presenters should submit a 1-page abstract by April 15, 2015 through PaperPlaza.  See also the Call for Late Breaking Results Posters.

Ph.D. Forum

For the first time, ICRA 2015 will host a Ph.D. Forum.  The Ph.D. Forum provides an opportunity for a group of Ph.D. students to discuss and explore their research interests and career objectives with a panel of established researchers in robotics. We invite Ph.D. students at any level to apply for the ICRA Ph.D. Forum.  See the Call for Participation: Ph.D. Forum for details.

Robot Challenges

Proposals for half-day or full-day tutorials and workshops should include: statement of objectives, intended audience, list of speakers, and list of topics. These should be submitted via PaperPlaza. See also the Call for Robotics Challenges.

Trailer Video Materials

Video clips related to submitted papers are solicited to make a trailer video for the conference. These should be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots.
