LARS/SBR 2017 : LARS/SBR 2017 Latin American Robotics Symposium / Brazilian Robotics Symposium
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!
FINAL EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: June 12th, 2017
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.
