Call for papers

SSRR 2022 will create a unique opportunity for the development and exchange of research ideas and technical solutions. As always, emergency responders and other expected users will be involved in presentations and discussions to ensure the practical relevance of technology developments for actual usage.


Each Special Session proposal should be limited to two A4 pages in length and must include title, a brief description of the motivation and relevance of the session, name and affiliation of the organizer(s) and the contacted authors and titles for tentative papers for the session. 
Proposals of Special Session should be submitted by email to the SSRR 2022 General Chairs.


All Regular and Special Session papers should be submitted in standard IEEE format: 
Six pages including figures and references are allowed for each paper. The authors can have 2 optional additional pages with extra cost. A multimedia supplementary material up to 10MB in mpeg, mpg, mp4 format can also be submitted.
