SSRR 2018: The 16th IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics


The 2018 International Symposium on Safety, Security and Rescue Robotics (SSRR 2018) will be held in Philadelphia, PA, USA on August 6-8, 2018.  The venue for SSRR 2018 will be on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. The program will integrate workshops, plenaries, robot demonstrations and social activities for attendees and guests.

The IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR) is an international forum for furthering the study of key issues underpinning the research of safety, security and rescue robotics as well as solutions necessary for the fielding of robots and sensor systems across a variety of challenging application areas. The sixteenth symposium in the series welcomes submissions of papers on 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. The symposium will create a unique opportunity for development and exchange of research ideas and technical solutions.

As always, emergency responders and other expected users will be involved in presentations and discussions to ensure the practical relevance of technology developments for actual usage.
