Special section in a specialized journal being negotiated.
== General Information ==
The IEEE(*) International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and
Competitions gathers participants from academia and industry working
in the field of autonomous robotics and related areas. It is organized
within the 15th Portuguese Robotics Open, a RoboCup-sponsored local event.
The conference will be held at the University of Tras-os-Montes e
Alto-Douro (UTAD) in Vila Real, Portugal, on April 8-10, 2015.
UTAD is a young university that spawn from the previous Vila Real
Polytechnic Institute in 1986. Vila Real is at the heart of the
Port Wine producing region in the north of Portugal, approximately
100km inland from Porto. It is also the town of the Mateus palace
that became immortalized in the labels of the Mateus Rose wine bottles.
It is very well served by several highways being easily reachable
from Porto by bus.
The conference started as the meeting point of the Portuguese community
working on Mobile Robotics Competitions and soon grew to an open
international event to share related research work.
ICARSC has long been an IEEE co-sponsored event and its proceedings
have recently been indexed in IEEExplore and in Scopus. Moreover,
similarly to previous editions, a special section in a specialized
journal will be set up to accommodate the publication of extended
versions of selected papers.
This year the conference will particularly seek cutting-edge research
works on Agricultural Robotics.
(*) IEEE co-sponsorship pending.
== Important Dates ==
Submission deadline: Jan. 18, 2015
Notification of acceptance: Feb. 22, 2015
Camera-ready papers: Mar. 08, 2015
Early registration deadline: Mar. 01, 2015
Conference: Apr. 08-10, 2015
All deadlines are on 23:59 GMT.

== Submission Guidelines ==
The working language is English, only. Authors are invited to submit
original research contributions electronically, in PDF format,
Submitted papers should be up to six pages in total, in the IEEE
conference format, following the standard IEEE guidelines.
Reviewing for ICARSC 2015 will be *double blind* so authors must remove
their names from the submitted papers and should take reasonable care not
to indirectly disclose their identity.
Accepted papers will be scheduled for presentation, which requires that at
least one of the authors must register at the Conference and present the
paper. Failure to meet this requirement will imply removing the paper from
the online version of the proceedings.
We welcome you at ICARSC 2015 to share your latest research results.
See you in Vila Real !
