The 2014 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center, Hong Kong, China, from May 31 to June 5, 2014. Hong Kong, situated on China’s south coast and enclosed by the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea, is renowned for its expansive skyline and deep natural harbor. Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, and serves as the one of the busiest gateway between the east and west. The conference theme is “Robotics and Automation: Technologies Enabling New Economic Growth” reflecting the growing spectrum and recent developments in robotics and automation around the world.

Paper Submission : all papers submitted to ICRA 2014 undergo a peer-review process. A manuscript will be reviewed by at least two reviewers, who will give detailed comments and – if the submission gets accepted – the authors submit a revised (“camera-ready”) version that takes into account this feedback. The review process is managed by the ICRA Conference Review Board (ICRB). All papers are reviewed using a single-blind review process: authors declare their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but reviewers do not know each other’s identities, nor do the authors receive information about who has reviewed their manuscript. A selected number of papers will be carefully chosen by the program committee for interactive presentation, in addition to a brief talk during a regular session. For the first submission, a manuscript can be of 6-8 pages. For the final submission, a manuscript should be of 6 pages, with 2 additional pages allowed but at an extra charge. Optional Multimedia materials (e.g. videos, enhanced pictures, audio files, experimental dataset, etc. – all limited to three minutes duration) can be added to supplement contributed papers.
