Presenting Your Robotics & Automation Magazine Paper at ICRA or IROS
Any IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine (RAM) paper, may be presented at either an upcoming IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) or an upcoming IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), provided most of the key ideas of the paper have never appeared at a conference with a published proceedings (i.e., the paper is a "new" paper and not the evolved version of a previous conference paper or papers).
- To be eligible for ICRA 20xx+1, your paper’s final accepted manuscript must be submitted to RAM for proofing between 1 January 20xx and 31 December 20xx.
- To be eligible for IROS 20xx+1, your paper’s final accepted manuscript must be submitted to RAM for proofing between 1 May 20xx and 3-0 April 20xx+1.
In summary, if your final manuscript is submitted between 1 January and 30 April of 20xx, it meets the date criteria for IROS 20xx and ICRA 20xx+1. If your final manuscript is submitted between 1 May and 31 December of 20xx, it meets the date criteria for ICRA 20xx+1 and IROS 20xx+1.
Authors may not request any acceleration or delay of the review process based on these criteria.
Authors of eligible papers will be contacted by the RAM Editor-in-Chief’s office, typically in April/May or December/January, to determine interest in presenting at a conference. Eligible papers may only be presented at one conference.
