About the Event and Organising Committee

Welcome to the 2014 IEEE-RAS Response Robotics Summer School and Workshop! This year's event is held with the financial support of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society's Technical Education Program and hosted by the Department of Computing at Curtin University and the Perth Artifactory. It is an event of the DHS-NIST-ASTM International Standard Test Methods for Response Robots project and brought to you by the Robolit LLC and the RoboCupRescue Robot League community.


The 2014 IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Response Robotics Summer School and Workshop (RRSS+W) addresses the need for effective robotic solutions in emergency response scenarios, focusing on remote handling in response situations.

The RRSS+W is aimed at final year undergraduate, Masters and PhD students, and early career researchers.

It will also showcase the Open Academic Robot Kit and the Confined Space Challenge arenas, which seek to bridge the gap between high school, undergraduate and graduate research. Thus we encourage teachers and educators at these levels to attend, learn about these initiatives and work with us to further develop them.

We also welcome all attendees from around the world who have an interest in this domain, including industry research and development personnel and enthusiasts in this field.

It is brought to you by the same team that brought you the highly successful 2013 Response Robotics Summer School and 2012 IEEE-RAS Safety, Security and Rescue Robotics Summer School.

This year we will focus on mobile manipulation and on reaching out beyond the Academic Community, to the Makers and Educators who also have so much to contribute to advancement in this field.
