Call for Papers

IROS Intro, Venue and Theme

The IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) is a premier flagship academic conference in robotics. For over 30-years, IROS has showcased leading-edge research. In hindsight, the work has been seminal, underpinning much of today’s global robotics industries, products, and services. IROS continues to be the place to learn future directions and the latest approaches, designs, outcomes, and networks with the world’s leading roboticists.

IEEE Xplore, Page Format Guidelines, Templates and Page Limits

As peer-reviewed archival publications, all accepted papers will be hosted on IEEE Xplore. Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality papers representing original work. Submissions along the theme, as well as all areas of intelligent robots and applications, are welcome.

Please submit papers via the customary Paper Plaza process.

October 23 – October 27, 2022: Conference days

RA-L with IROS Option (IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters)

RA-L is a journal following IEEE’s highest standards of IEEE periodicals. This option adds value; one’s RA-L submission has the opportunity to be presented at IROS. More information for this option is found in the link below. Note: The decision of RA-L with IROS Option and decision of RA-L is independent.

Please follow the RA-L submission process on PaperPlaza for IEEE RA-L Submission and select Submission for RA-L and IROS. Please do not follow the IROS 2022 submission process.
