Scope

The 15th IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics 2017 (SSRR 2017) is held on 11-13 October 2017 in Shanghai, China. The conference is organized with the help of the ShanghaiTech Automation and Robotics Center (STAR Center) and is hosted by the School of Information Science and Technology (SIST) of ShanghaiTech University. The Research University was founded in 2013 and is aiming to be a leading Institution in China and the world by creating a unique open and free academic environment which will serve as the cradle that trains future scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and industrial leaders in information sciences and technologies to play key roles in the ongoing economic transformation of China and the world. The conference will be held in the brand-new campus in the Zhangjiang High-Tech Park of Pudong, Shanghai.

Topics of Interest

  • Safety robotics
  • Security robotics
  • Robotics on Rescue application
    • disaster response
    • mitigation and recover
    • rapid and secure inspection of critical infrastructure
    • detection of chemical
    • biological and radiological risks
    • operations in hazardous conditions

Call for Papers

SSRR is inviting 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.

Submissions of original papers focused on traditional and emerging areas and applications in safety, security, and rescue robotics are encouraged. All papers will appear in IEEE Xplore. Nominated contributions for "Best Paper" and "Best Student Paper" awards and other outstanding papers that report field experiments will be considered for a special issue of the Journal of Field Robotics. Late-breaking-reports will be also considered and included in the program. Submission guidelines will be found in the SSRR website.

The conference is hosted by the School of Information Science and Technology (SIST) of ShanghaiTech University and the ShanghaiTech Automation and Robotics Center (STAR Center). The research university was founded in 2013 and is aiming to be a leading institution in China and the world by creating a unique open and free academic environment which will serve as the cradle that trains future scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and industrial leaders in information sciences and technologies to play key roles in the ongoing economic transformation of China and the world. The conference will be held in the brand-new campus in the Zhangjiang High-Tech Park of Pudong, Shanghai.

Call for Demos

Robot Demonstrations related to the SSRR theme are very welcome. Please submit a one page description of how your system will be compelling for safety, security, or rescue robot developers and users. Images and video of the demo are encouraged. Please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Call for Competition Participation

There will also be a small competition held in parallel to SSRR 2017. The main goal here is to have some rescue robots running around and to demonstrate their capabilities in a live arena. The arena will be composed out of a few selected standard robot test elements. The elements will be at the 60cm scale, that is half the width of a standard RoboCup Rescue arena. See the website for more details and links. Any ground robot that fits in the arena is welcome - please contact Sören Schwetfeger (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) for details and if you want to participate.
