Call For Papers


Taking into account many new requests and a peak of submissions that
occurred today, we decided to extend one more time the submission deadline.
This is the last chance!


Please, distribute the following call for papers. Sorry for multiple postings.


CFP: Call for Papers - LARS/SBR 2017


LARS 2017 - 14th Latin American Robotics Symposium

SBR 2017 - 5th Brazilian Symposium on Robotics

The LARS and SBR (Latin American Robotics Symposium / Brazilian Robotics Symposium) aim 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, Computer Engineering and related areas.

The event will be held through technical sessions of oral presentation of full papers and technical lectures of recognized importance in the area.

The LARS and SBR are the major scientific/academic meetings of a broader event that has other relevant events on robotics, named ROBOTICA 2017. This event also comprises the LARC/CBR (Latin American Robotics Competition / Brazilian Robotics Competition), OBR (Brazilian Robotics Olympics), MNR (National Robotics Expo), and SBESC (Brazilian Symposium on Computing Systems Engineering).

The LARS/SBR will be held in Curitiba, Parana, Brazil from November 9th to 11th, 2017.

We are looking forward to seeing you in LARS/SBR 2017.

Any further information regarding papers submission can be addressed here


The proceedings will be submitted for inclusion by IEEE, to the IEEE Xplore site.
Currently the suggested status of CAPES QUALIS is B3 for conference papers.


A selected number of outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions of the papers to important journals (to be announced).
The CAPES QUALIS of the journal will be higher than of the conference papers.
