ICRA 2017: Call for Late Breaking Results

ICRA 2017 - Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Real-world Solutions

The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) will be held 29 May - 3 June 2017 at Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. ICRA is IEEE Robotics and Automation Society's flagship conference and is a premier international forum for robotics researchers to present their work.

It is timely that Singapore is hosting ICRA in 2017, as the country strives to be a Smart Nation, one where people are empowered by technology to lead meaningful and fulfilled lives, and to support better living, stronger communities, and create more opportunities for all.

The conference theme, "Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Real-world Solutions", underscores the need for innovative R&D talent, dynamic and goal-driven entrepreneurs and practitioners using robotics and automation technology to solve challenging real-world problems such as shortage of labour, an ageing society, and creating sustainable environments.

ICRA 2017 will introduce a new Robotics Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum, alongside an industrial forum, a government forum, an ASEAN & emerging country forum, and a public forum (ICRA-X) centred on the conference theme, in addition to plenary and keynote sessions, technical paper sessions, workshop and tutorial sessions, exhibitions, and robot challenges. We welcome researchers, engineers, students, industry, investors and people from all walks of life interested in robotics and automation to participate in this gala robotics event!

Call for Late Breaking Results

At ICRA 2017, there will be a Late Breaking Results Poster Session where researchers have the opportunity to present recent results in robotics and automation. Posters in the Late Breaking Results session are not peer-reviewed and do not count as publications.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. See: http://www.icra2017.org/contribute/call-late-breaking-results?utm_source=robotics-worldwide&utm_medium=mailing_list

Prospective poster presenters should submit a 1-page extended abstract by 10 March 2017 through the PaperPlaza system here: 
http://ras.papercept.net/conferences/scripts/start.pl

Decisions will be made as soon as possible after the abstract is submitted, but no later than 24 March 2017. Final abstracts for accepted posters will be due by 7 April 2017. At least one of the authors of each accepted poster is expected to be present at the poster during the entire poster session.

Poster abstracts are not peer-reviewed and are not publications. As such, they will not be included in the conference proceedings and IEEE Xplore. The abstract will be available to the conference attendees in electronic form. The Late Breaking Results Poster Session will be a great avenue to share your latest work and we strongly encourage you to submit your interesting new work for this session.
