ACRA 2015

Australasian Conference on Robotics and Automation 2015

Robert Mahony (General Chair), and Jonghyuk Kim and Hongdong Li (Program Chair)

ISBN: 978-0-9807404-6-2 ISSN: 1448-2053

All full papers submitted to ACRA 2015 will undergo a peer-review process. Each manuscript will be reviewed by at least two reviewers who will give detailed comments. If the submission is accepted, the authors will submit a revised (“camera-ready”) version that takes into account this feedback. The review process is managed by the program chair of the conference.

All papers are reviewed using a single-blind review process: authors declare their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but reviewers do not know each other’s identities, nor do the authors receive information about who has reviewed their manuscript.
