Video session(s)

The submitted videos to IROS 2018 can show novel research results or interesting applications in relevance to the conference topics. We welcome videos showing early results as well as well-researched results. Submitted videos will be reviewed by the Conference Video Committee.

To submit a video to IROS 2018, please refer to the following instructions:

  • Duration: 1-3 minutes.

  • Size: Less than 50 Mb.

  • Formats: The MPEG format (.mpg) will be accepted.

  • Codecs: Do not use special codecs in order to provide as much portability across platforms as possible. Any variance from the suggested formatting may result in difficulties playing the file on different platforms and could be blocked.

  • Structure: The video must include at the beginning a video cover with the title, authors and affiliation and the credits at the end.

When preparing the video, please make it as professional as possible. Producing a video already requires a significant amount of effort, and therefore, spending a little more effort to raise the quality can make a big difference in how it is received.

The video contributions should not have any commercial pitch and the authors of each video must have clear copyright of the audio and visual content.

The submission of the videos will be through the electronic submission process via PaperPlaza. Each video must be accompanied by a one-page description in PDF: a) title, authors and affiliation, b) 200-word abstract, and c) contact information. The selected videos (and the PDF descriptions) will be linked in the electronic conference proceedings and will also be displayed during the conference.
