Call for Paper

The 2019 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2019) will be held on November 3 – 8, 2019 in The Venetian Macao, Macau, China. The IROS is one of the largest and most impacting robotics research conferences worldwide. It provides an international forum for the international robotics research community to explore the frontier of science and technology in intelligent robots and smart machines. In addition to technical sessions and multi-media presentations, IROS conferences also hold panel discussions, forums, workshops, tutorials, exhibits, and technical tours to enrich the fruitful discussions among conference attendees.

Under the theme of "Robots Connecting People", prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality papers representing original results falling under the theme, as well as in all areas of intelligent robot components, systems, and applications. Please submit papers via the customary PaperPlaza process, follow the format guidelines, and use the templates available in LaTeX and MS Word. Papers should be six pages in length, with up to two extra pages at the cost of $180 per extra page.

All papers are reviewed using a blind 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.  Best paper awards in various categories as detailed on official IROS website will be selected.

 

IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters (RA-L) with IROS Option

IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters (RA-L) with IROS Option will be launched at IROS 2019. Information about paper submission to RA-L with IROS Option can be found at http://www.ieee-ras.org/publications/ra-l. Papers accepted by RA-L with IROS Option will be presented at the conference and published in RA Letters.

 

Presenting Transactions on Robotics (T-RO) Paper at IROS 2019

Any IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO) paper, other than communication items and survey papers, is eligible to be presented at IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) 2019, 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 IROS 2019, your paper’s final accepted manuscript must be submitted to T-RO for proofing between May 1, 2018 and April 30, 2019. 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 T-RO Editor-in-Chief’s office to determine interest in presenting at a conference. Eligible papers may only be presented at one conference.

Detailed information can be found at http://www.ieee-ras.org/publications/t-ro.
