Call For Papers

CFP - Call for Papers - LARS/SBR 2014

SBR'2014 - 2nd Brazilian Symposium on Robotics
LARS'2014 - 11th Latin American Robotics Symposium

October 18-23, 2014 - São Carlos-SP, Brazil


The LARS/SBR Robotics Symposium is part of the Joint Conference on Robotics 2014, and aims at promoting a comprehensive scientific meeting in the area of Intelligent Robotics, bringing together researchers, undergraduate and graduate students of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering and related areas. This symposium will be through technical sessions of oral presentation of full papers, short papers presented as posters, and technical lectures of recognized importance in the area. We are looking forward to seeing you in LARS/SBR 2014.

The SBR was formerly known as the EnRI - Brazilian Intelligent Robotics Meeting.
The LARS can be considered as the most important Latin American Robotics Symposium.
The LARS/SBR were also organized together in 2012 at Fortaleza-CE (Brazil).

The LARS/SBR and Robocontrol are the three major scientific/academic events on Robotics of the Joint Conference on Robotics and Intelligent Systems Meeting (JCRIS2014). This conference, JCRIS2014, also covers the BRACIS (Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems) and other important satellite events, exhibitions and competitions.


Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 6 pages including title, abstract, all tables, figures, and references.
Papers should present substantial new results in theoretical, empirical and applied research related to the topics of the conference.

Papers must be submitted using the JEMS system:
