About SSRR 2016

The 14th IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics, SSRR 2016, will take place at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland on 23-27 October 2016.

SSRR 2016 seeks continue the tradition of attracting cutting-edge papers in the theory and practice of robotics and automation for all types of safety, security, and rescue applications such as disaster response, mitigation and recovery; rapid and secure inspection of critical infrastructure; detection of chemical, biological and radiological risks, and operations in these dangerous sites. SSRR is also an entry point for researchers and technologists who want to learn more about safety, security and rescue robotics, through tutorials and keynotes.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Autonomous search and rescue
  • Casualty assessment, care and extraction
  • Communications for reliable data transfer
  • Detection and mitigation of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) events
  • Emerging technologies (sensors, power sources, micro robots, etc)
  • Humanitarian applications (Was Humanitarian demining)
  • Human-robot interaction and interfaces
  • Inspection of critical infrastructure
  • Intelligent behaviors to improve robot performance and survivability
  • Manipulation
  • Mechanisms, Mechatronics, and Embedded Control
  • Multi-agent coordination
  • Novel sensors and mechanisms
  • Nuclear decommissioning
  • Perception for navigation, hazard detection, and victim identification
  • Robotics and Automation for safety and security
  • Safety standards for robots and systems
  • Sensing and sensor fusion
  • SLAM in complex and/or extreme environments
  • Structural assessment
  • Telemedicine
  • Unmanned ground, aerial, and marine vehicles

In addition, SSRR 2016 will feature four awards:

  • Best Paper Award
  • Best Student Paper Award
  • Best Late Breaking Reports Award
  • Best Demonstration Award
