Papers up to 8 A4 pages in length are welcomed. Colour may be used but bear in mind that the proceedings will be published in greylevel so make sure that your coloured versions still make sense without colour.
For the final version we will use the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society format. The RAS provide a style file, example templates and information for authors here.
You may choose not to use this for initial submission for review, but to get accurate space estimates, please use double column with 1 inch (2.54cm) left and right margins with 3cm headers and footers and include an abstract.
Please send your paper in pdf format to s.ramamoorthy"at"ed.ac.uk.
Intructions for Presenters
Oral Presentations at TAROS
The allocated time for oral presentations is 15 minutes, plus 5 minutes for questions and changeover between speakers. Overhead and powerpoint projectors are available. If you have other requirements (video, slides etc.) please contact the organisers in good time.
Please check with the conference schedule to determine when you are presenting (and on the day, as the schedule may change!), and contact your session chairperson at least 15 minutes before your session to ensure your presentation is loaded and there are no compatibility problems with the projection equipment, etc.
If you are scheduled to present, but cannot make the slot, please arrange for a qualified substitute speaker, and inform the organisers as soon as possible.
Poster Presentations at TAROS
The poster boards are approximately 850mm high by 1200mm wide (i.e. A0 size), so please plan your poster to be no larger than A0 (841x1189)
for display in landscape format
. An A1 size (594x841mm) poster may be displayed either in portrait or landscape format. If you intend to use individual sheets, please plan your display within the dimensions given.
Besides being displayed, posters will be presented in a 3 - 4 minute "poster spotlight". For this presentation, authors are invited to use up to three slides to introduce their poster. Timings will be strictly observed. The purpose of the poster spotlight is to present just the main points of your poster - details of the work should be presented during the actual poster session.
You are specifically asked to USE NO PINS on the display boards, but "Velcro" style self-adhesive hook patches to mount your posters, which will be available on the day.
