Call for Late Breaking Results Poster


You are cordially invited to contribute Late Breaking Results poster to IROS 2019. Similar to the Late Breaking Results posters at previous IROS’s, the submissions are one-page in length with a streamlined acceptance-decision process, and they are presented at the conference as posters.

This component of the conference technical program is intended to reach out the broader robotics research community, and the submissions are not peer-reviewed. Although accepted posters will be included in the conference proceedings, since they are not considered as publications, they will not be submitted to IEEE for inclusion in the Xplore database.

Under the theme of Robots Connecting People, IROS 2019 particularly welcomes submissions that address technological challenges in developing friendly robots that can work effectively with, for, and around people. As always, we also invite submissions in all areas of intelligent robots and systems, their components, and applications. 

Prospective poster presenters should submit a 1-page abstract by July 15 through the PaperPlaza system:

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What's the Late Breaking Results Poster Session about? 
This session is to allow as many people as possible to share their work at IROS. The posters are reviewed for basic quality only, and are not held to the same standards as full papers. 

2. What's the poster conference format? 
Poster sessions will run at 12:30-13:30 on Nov. 5 and 12:00-13:00 on Nov. 6. Bring a paper poster and put it on your board at the allocated time, and talk to your colleagues about your work. 

3. How many authors of each accepted poster present the poster at IROS?
At least one of the authors of each accepted poster is expected to be present at the poster during the entire session.

4. Does the presenter/s (author/s) need to register to the conference?
Yes. You need to register to the Conference as any other attendees.

5. What are the criteria for accepting Late Breaking Results Poster submissions?
The poster should describe robotics research or applications that will be of interest to the IROS audience. Posters are not formally peer-reviewed but normal standards of academic integrity and presentation apply. References should be given to prior work. Applications papers, including projects in education are welcome.

6. I had a paper rejected from IROS or another conference or journal. Can I submit a poster based on that paper? 

7. I had a paper accepted to IROS or another conference or journal. Can I submit a poster based on that paper? 
Yes. The poster itself must be unique and not reproduced elsewhere.

8. If my poster appears at IROS, can I send a full paper based on the same work elsewhere? 
It depends on the publication, so please check the condition by yourself. You can't reproduce the poster itself elsewhere, but a longer paper on the same topic should be acceptable elsewhere. 

9. Can I submit a poster on work in progress? 
Yes. If you are proud of your work so far, and your ideas will be of interest to the IROS audience. Posters can be somewhat speculative.
