ICRA Steering Committee
The ICRA Steering Committee Chair reports to the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) Vice-President of the Conference Activities Board (VP CAB) or his/her designee. The ICRA Steering Committee is a sub-committee of IEEE RAS Conference Activities Board (CAB).
Purpose of the Steering Committee
The ICRA Steering Committee oversees the long-term planning and success of current instances of the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA); plans for future editions in the series of ICRA conferences; evaluates how well each ICRA has achieved its objectives; and proposes and implements improvements to continuously meet these objectives.
The ICRA Steering Committee is responsible for the general oversight and long-term goals for ICRA. It is normally responsible for making strategic decisions, providing guidance, oversight, and support for the Organizing Committees of ICRA. Among its duties, it is responsible for the pre-selection of ICRA dates and locations; determining the major theme of ICRA; coordination amongst partner IEEE or Non-IEEE societies; creation or approval of any ICRA-specific policies; enforcement of IEEE and RAS conference policies; and reviewing the budget.
The ICRA Steering Committee selects a set of candidate teams and sites of future editions of ICRA, and presents these to the IEEE RAS Administrative Committee (AdCom). AdCom chooses the conference site and organizing team from among these candidates by voting.
