About the conference
The IEEE International Conference on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (SSRR) is an international forum for furthering the study of safety, security and rescue robotics as well as solutions necessary for fielding robots and sensor systems across a variety of application areas. This symposium welcomes submissions on the theory and practice of robotics and automation for all types of safety, security and rescue applications such as disaster response, mitigation and recovery; rapid and secure inspection of critical infrastructure; detection of chemical, biological and radiological risks, and operations in these dangerous sites.

The history of Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Würzburg reaches back as far as 1402. Many eminent scholars and scientists, 14 Nobel Laureates among them, have conducted research and taught in Würzburg. Notable scientists include Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, who discovered X-rays in Würzburg in 1895, and Klaus von Klitzing, who discovered the Quantum-Hall Effect. Today, Würzburg’s university comprises ten faculties with approximately 425 professors and 29,000 students.
The department of Robotics and Telematics focuses on interdisciplinary system design with emphasis on Telematics-integrating telecommunications, computer science and control engineering Robotics and Mechatronics – integrating electronics, mechanics, sensors, control engineering, information processing Germany’s first cube satellite, now resident at the Science Museum in Munich, was developed here.
The local firefighting academy in Würzburg was established in 1949 and finds itself since 1954 in its current location at Zellarau, Würzburg. Around 6000 firefighters visit the academy every year, taking part in one of the around 190 courses offered here. The courses contain both theoretical parts and practical parts to best prepare firefighters for emergencies.
