Call for Papers

As peer-reviewed archival publications, all accepted papers will be hosted on IEEE Xplore. Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality papers representing original work. Submissions in all areas of intelligent robots and applications are welcome.

Please submit papers via the customary Paper Plaza process.

  1. Format Guidelines
  2. LaTex Template
  3. MS Word Template


Papers should be six pages (US letter size) in length, with up to two extra pages ($205 USD charge per extra page, payment should be made after the acceptance). The number of pages includes the references, appendices, etc. A short video (1-minute maximum) can also be attached to your paper to supplement results (see Instructions below).

The IROS Conference Paper Review Board (like ICRA’s CEB) rigorously reviews all submissions and then through the IROS 2023 Senior Program Committee, renders acceptance decisions. Best Paper Awards in various categories are also selected by their respective committees.

Note: IROS no longer offers an RA-L+IROS submission option. Papers accepted at RA-L, T-RO, RAM, and T-ASE between August 1, 2022, and April 30, 2023 will be given the option to present at IROS2023.

Instructions: Authors and Submission Process

All papers must be in English and submitted electronically in PDF (up to 6 MB) format via PaperPlaza. To ensure formatting compliance (e.g. margins, fonts and size) the templates should be used (links provided above).

A 1-minute video (up to 10 MB) can be added to supplement your paper. Videos are not mandatory; rather, it’s an opportunity to augment one’s paper to visibly showcase results. MPG, MPEG or MP4 video formats can be used. One can upload or re-upload the video attachment no later than March 5, 2023 (23:59 PST).

All papers accepted at the 2023 IROS are to be presented, in person, by the author/co-author or a knowledgeable person on the subject matter. All authors will also submit a 5-minute presentation video for IROS on-demand. If a paper cannot be presented in person due to government travel restrictions or the inability to get a Visa due to world events, the 5-minute presentation video will be available via IROS on-demand but will not be shown at the in-person conference. No alternate arrangements will be made.
