IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR 2012-2013) Student Travel Awards Grant uri icon


  • The annual IEEE International Symposium on Safety Security and Rescue Robotics (SSRR),sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, International Rescue System Institute,and the Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue, has a tradition of attracting cutting-edgepapers in the theory and practice of robots for rapid and secure inspection of criticalinfrastructure, disaster response and recovery, disaster mitigation and recovery, detection ofchemical, biological and radiological risks, and operations in these dangerous sites.In the past it has served as a forum gathering international researchers together for theexchange of ideas on technical problems and their solutions in these domains. The 10thanniversary SSRR 2012 will be hosted this year at Texas A&M, College Station, Texas, while the11th will be hosted in Linkoping, Sweden. This proposal requests travel funds from NSF to assiststudents to participate in SSRR 2012 & 2013 to participate in field trials with actual responders.This represents both the intellectgual merit and the broader impacts.
