ROBOT 2023 : Iberian Robotics Conference
Call For Papers
*** Call for Papers ***
6th Iberian Robotics Conference (ROBOT2023)
Hosted by the University of Coimbra
November 22-24, 2023, Coimbra, Portugal.
We are pleased to inform that ROBOT2023, the 6th Iberian Robotics Conference, will be held at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, during November 22 - 24, 2023. This conference follows the previous successful events, held in Madrid in 2013, Lisbon in 2015, Seville in 2017, Porto in 2019 and Zaragoza in 2022. ROBOT2023 main goal is to continue the precedent efforts in showcasing the robotics research and development of new applications in the Iberian Peninsula. Although focused on the works developed at Iberia, the conference is open for submissions from any country in the world. ROBOT2023 will feature technical and social programs. The technical program will comprise plenary, regular and special sessions. All articles submitted for inclusion in the conference will be peer reviewed before acceptance. It is envisaged that all accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, which will be published by Springer Proceedings in Advanced Robotics series, indexed by Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge and SCOPUS. A selection of the conference papers will also be recommended for publication as extended versions in Special Issues from international top ranked Journals.
We invite original contributions in all areas relevant to robotics, covering mobile, walking, flying, marine, underwater, and industrial robots. The conference will cover analysis (modelling and simulation) techniques, design approaches, and practical applications and realisations of developed robotic systems. Support technologies for realisation of such systems, namely sensors and actuators, computer vision and image processing, tactile & haptics devices, control algorithms and architectures, localization, mapping and navigation, associated economic, ethical, legal and social considerations are integral part of the conference theme. Human-robot interaction, including medical robots, exoskeletons, prostheses, and orthoses, as well as personal and service robots forms an increasingly active and important pertinent area. A non-exhaustive list of topics and activities can be found on the website.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS
The technical program of the conference will feature Regular Papers and Special Session Papers. Authors are invited to submit their full draft papers in PDF format from the paper submission page of the conference website by the indicated deadline for consideration for inclusion in the relevant category (special/regular paper). Articles submitted for inclusion in the conference will be peer reviewed before acceptance. Final accepted papers will be limited to 12 pages and must follow the Springer AISC template, given in the Call & Instructions web page.
Best regular and student Paper Awards and, SEIDROB-SPR Best Iberian PhD in Robotics will be awarded during the conference.
