ICARSC'2016 - IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions
May 4-6, 2016
Bragança – Portugal

Dear colleague,
We are pleased to inform you that ICARSC’2016 – IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions will be held in Bragança, Portugal, on May 4-6, 2016.
The conference is organized within ROBOTICA 2016 - 16th Portuguese Robotics Open, a RoboCup-sponsored local event, and it is promoted by the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança and the Portuguese Robotics Society.

Conference Scope
ICARSC gathers participants from academia and industry working in the field of autonomous robotics and related areas. The conference started as the meeting point of the Portuguese community working on Mobile Robotics Competitions and soon grew to an open International event to share related research work.
ICARSC’2016 is an IEEE co-sponsored event (the conference has the co-sponsorship of IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, IEEE Portugal Section and IEEE Portugal Section Robotics and Automation Chapter) and its proceedings will be indexed in IEEExplore and Scopus and submitted for indexing to Inspec, EI’s Engineering Information Index, Compendex®, and ISI Thomson’s Scientific and Technical Proceedings®, ISTP®/ISI Proceedings, and Current Contents on Diskette®.
Extended versions of selected best papers will be invited for publication at a special issue of the “Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems”.

Conference Topics
The conference aims to gather researchers from the industry and academia to present and discuss the latest trends in research and technology in the fields of robotics and related areas.
Contributions from researchers, industry and outputs from collaboration between industrial and academic R&D units are welcome in the following topics.
• Agricultural Robotics
• Applications of Autonomous Intelligent Robots

Invited Speaker
The conference will feature a plenary talk by Dr. Rainer Bischoff, Head of KUKA's Corporate Research department responsible for research and technology development.

Paper Submission
Authors are invited to submit original research contributions in English. Six pages in the standard IEEE format are allowed for each paper, including tables and figures. Full draft papers should be submitted electronically, in PDF format, using the URL: For evaluation purposes, authors must remove their names from the submitted papers, and should take reasonable care not to indirectly disclose their identity.
Accepted papers will be scheduled for presentation, which requires that at least one of the authors should register at the Conference and present the paper.
If the authors of an accepted paper, either for oral presentation or poster, do not show up at the conference, the corresponding paper will not be submitted to IEEExplore.
Authors of the best conference papers will be invited to submit an extended contribution to be evaluated for possible publication in the journals “Industrial Robot: An International Journal” and “Sensor Review”.
