Call for Papers
Submission instructions are here.
The 2009 Robotics: Science and Systems Conference will bring together researchers working on algorithmic or mathematical foundations of robotics, robotics applications, and analysis of robotic systems. High quality, original papers are solicited in all areas of robotics. The final program will be the result of a highly selective review process designed to include the best work of its kind in every category.
The conference will be single track to allow attendees an opportunity to experience the best research in all areas of robotics. The program will include invited talks as well as oral and poster presentations of refereed papers. Conference dates are Sunday, June 28 through Wednesday, July 1, 2009. Workshops will run all day Sunday and Monday morning and the main conference track begins Monday afternoon and continues through Wednesday. As in previous years, efforts are underway to make RSS affordable, particularly for student attendees.

Formatting instruction and a LaTeX template are available at http://www.roboticsconference.org/authors.html .
Submissions will be refereed on the basis of technical quality, novelty, significance, and clarity. Each submission will be thoroughly reviewed by at least three program committee members. Reviews will notbe double-blind. A rebuttal period will allow authors an opportunity to respond to the reviews. Submissions, reviews, and the replies of the authors will then be discussed at a meeting that all Area Chairs will attend. There will be an opportunity after the meeting for authors to revise accepted manuscripts.
Special Journal Issues:
After the conference, special RSS 2009 issues of International Journal of Robotics Research and Autonomous Robots will be produced, each containing expanded versions of a selection of the best papers from the conference.
Best Paper Awards:
