ROSCon 2019: Call for Talks/Videos

As announced previously, ROSCon is expanding! While we are still accepting workshop proposals until this Wednesday (May 22nd), today we are opening submissions for standard talks and videos.

  • Talks - Presenter(s) talking live in front of slides/video, with a brief question period at the end, fitting into a 10, 20 or 30 minute time slot.
  • Videos - Up to 2 minutes of self-contained audio-visual content, featured alongside the talks in the program. Presented without live narration or Q/A afterward.
  • Workshops - Presenter(s) providing a hands-on in-depth look at a particular topic in a more interactive format, over the course of up to 3 hours.

You can submit proposals for talks and videos on the ROSCon site until July 15th, 2019.

We cannot offer content that is not proposed! If there is a topic on which you would like to present, please propose it. If you have an idea for an important topic that you do not want to present yourself, please post it for discussion at ROS Discourse.

Talk Submission Information

Talk proposals must include

  • Title (maximum 70 characters)
  • Presenter(s) (name and affiliation)
  • Summary - for public consumption, used in the program schedule (maximum 100 words)
  • Description - outline and goals, for review by the program committee. Describe the intended audience and what they can expect to learn. Please be sure to include enough information in your proposal for the program committee to evaluate the above review criteria.

This information must be formatted as a pdf, using the templates available on the website.

Accepted presenters will be required to provide their materials 5 weeks before ROSCon for content review to ensure the quality of the event. Content that does not pass review may be removed from the schedule at the discretion of the program committee.

Video Submission Information

Video submissions must include

  • Title (maximum 70 characters)
  • Presenter(s) (name and affiliation)
  • Summary - for public consumption, used in the program schedule (maximum 100 words)
  • Link to video online (maximum of two minutes). Do not feel the need to pad your video to two minutes: a concise thirty second video will present better than a slow two minute video.

This information must also be formatted as a pdf using the video templates available on the website.

Videos do not need to provide an extended description, but will need to provide a link to the video online. Note that the submitter is responsible for ensuring that the video is viewable by the reviewers. Note that while revisions may be made between the submission deadline and the conference, it will be reviewed based on the submitted content, which should be “finished quality.”

Additional Information

The general content guidelines and review criteria were posted previously.
