Call For Papers
The 2019 Robotics: Science and Systems Conference will bring together researchers working on all aspects of robotics including scientific foundations, applications, and analysis of robotic systems. We seek your best work in all areas of robotics and solicit papers that cover both the “Science” and the “Systems” of robotics.

The conference will be single-track, and the final program will be the result of a thorough review process to give attendees an opportunity to see the most exciting research in all areas of robotics. Submissions will be evaluated in terms of their novelty, technical quality, significance, potential impact, and clarity. Selected papers will be invited for submission to special issues of prestigious Robotics journals.

The program will include invited talks as well as oral and poster presentations of refereed papers. The three-day main session will be followed by two days of workshops and tutorials. Every effort is being made to keep the conference affordable, particularly for student attendees.

This year, we are especially excited to showcase the following two themes via special sessions at the conference:

    Soft and Bio-Inspired Robotics: Additive Manufacturing; Automation at Micro-Nano Scales; Biological Cell Manipulation; Biologically-Inspired Robots; Biomimetics; Cellular and Modular Robots; Compliance and Impedance Control; Compliant Joint/Mechanism; Distributed Robot Systems; Flexible Robots; Force Control; Micro/Nano Robots; Model Learning for Control; Multi-Robot Systems; Nanomanufacturing; Natural Machine Motion; Passive Walking; Physical Human-Robot Interaction; Physically Assistive Devices; Robot Safety; Sensor Networks; Soft Material Robotics; Swarms; Underactuated Robots; Wearable Robots

    AI for Robotics: Agent-Based Systems; AI-Based Methods; Autonomous Agents; Behavior-Based Systems; Big Data in Robotics and Automation; Control Architectures and Programming; Deep Learning in Robotics and Automation; Human Detection and Tracking; Mobile Manipulation; Object Detection, Segmentation and Categorization; Reactive and Sensor-Based Planning; Semantic Scene Understanding; Software, Middleware and Programming Environments; Cognitive Human-Robot Interaction; Gesture, Posture and Facial Expressions; Learning and Adaptive Systems; Learning from Demonstration; Robot Companions; Social Human-Robot Interaction.


RSS is actively seeking papers in areas that have not been traditionally represented at the conference and will stay true to its name covering both the “Science” and the “Systems” of robotics. Papers containing original and unpublished work are solicited in all areas of robotics, including (but not limited to) the following themes:

    Applications & Field Robotics
    AI for Robotics
    Cognitive Robotics
    Human-Centered Robotics and Automation
    Localization and Mapping
    Manipulation and Grasping
    Manufacturing, Process, and Service Automation
    Mechanisms, Design, and Control
    Medical and Rehabilitation
    Micro, Nano, and Biomimetic Systems
    Multiple and Distributed Systems
    Planning and Simulation
    Theoretical Foundations
    Vision and Sensor-Based Control
    Visual Perception and Learning
