Information for Authors

Manuscript submission

We are handling submissions through Easy Chair. Papers must be submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF) at our Submission Site in Easy Chair.

We encourage authors to submit their paper title, authors, and abstract by July 18. The system allows authors to only submit this information and later add/update files.

The deadline for paper submission has been extended to July 23 Anywhere on Earth (UTC -12).

Final manuscripts for the accepted papers are due on October 30th Anywhere on Earth (UTC -12). Preparation and upload instructions are the same as for their previously submitted papers.

Manuscript preparation

Manuscripts should be prepared using the Springer Proceedings in Advanced Robotics (SPAR) format. You can download the style/template files below:

Submissions should not exceed 16 pages in this format. Two-part submissions will be considered. For these manuscripts, authors should indicate in the titles the relation between the two papers and send an email to the co-chairs.

Detailed information on manuscript preparation can be found here.

Supplementary Material

Supplementary material (appendices with supportive proofs or multimedia files) can be submitted together with the main manuscript. While encouraged, the program committee members are not required to check the supplementary material in order to prepare their comments.
