The eighth IEEE International Workshop on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR-2010) takes place from 26. to 30. July 2010 at Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany.

SSRR-2010 is dedicated to identifying and solving the key issues necessary to field capable robots in response missions. This includes aerial and ground robots as well as unmanned underwater and surface marine vehicles. The scope of SSRR covers the robots' overall design as well as crucial components, e.g., for advanced locomotion, and intelligent onboard functionalities up to full autonomy.

Topics for contributions of interests can hence come from the following three areas

  • vehicles: complete marine, aerial, and ground robots as well as their components
  • intelligent functionalities: e.g., mapping, advanced user interfaces, autonomy
  • applications: e.g., field reports, end user studies, prospective usages

All accepted papers are published by IEEE. Furthermore, a selection gets the opportunity to contribute an extended version to a special journal issue.
