In the ISRR long-held tradition, the Symposium will be held in single track setting with a limited number of participants to encourage close technical and personal interactions. The program will include free submissions with full peer review, a number of invited and keynote speeches, and “Blue Sky talks”.
ISRR solicites contributions on all aspects of robotics research from all interested ambitious authors.
Papers for ISRR 2019 may be submitted in two types:
Long Format: We welcome papers of up to 16 pages (including references), in Springer format (see below), that describe thought-provoking research ideas or directions for which there is already established implementation or evidence. Selected papers will be organized into topical panels for presentation, debate and discussion.
Blue Sky Ideas Format: We encourage submissions to the “Blue Sky Ideas” track. These up to 8 pages (including references) papers 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.
Each submission will be reviewed by the Symposium Program Committee.
