Robotica 2014 -
ICARSC - IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems
May 14-15, 2014
- IEEE Robotics and Automation Society
- Portuguese Robotics Society
The IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and
Competitions is an international scientific meeting in the field of
autonomous robotics and related areas, which will take place in conjunction
with the 14th Portuguese Robotics Open, a RoboCup Local Event.
The conference will be held in Espinho, Portugal, on May 14-15, 2014.
Espinho is a very pleasant coastal village with a Mediterranean climate,
15km km south from Porto, Portugal. It has very good connections by airport,
railways and highways.
The conference has been growing continuously for the past decade and is
nowadays a truly international forum attracting quality research papers
from worldwide. Its technical program is the result of a thorough review
process. Due to its growing prestige and impact, the conference is now
an IEEE conference with proceedings indexed in IEEExplore and in Scopus.
The conference has confirmed a **Special Issue of selected extended papers
in the Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems** from Springer,
indexed by the Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge (IF=0.83).
