SBR/LARS 2017 – Robotics Symposium

About LARS/SBR 2017

SBR’2017 – 5th Brazilian Symposium on Robotics and LARS’2017 – 14rd Latin American Robotics Symposium.

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 8th to 11th, 2017.

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



ATTENTION: Last minute student discount (is valid only for LARS)!

For each three grad and or undergrad students from the same institution receive one extra grad and or undergrad student free. (Updated October 24th, 2017).

First of all, add to your Camera Ready Manuscript the copyright clearance code notice footnote in the first page, as follows. In the general case, the last option is the appropriate choice.

  • For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
  • For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-0956-9/17/$31.00 ©2017 Crown
  • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-0956-9/17/$31.00 ©2017 European Union
  • For all other papers the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-0956-9/17/$31.00 ©2017 IEEE

The detailed guidelines and templates can be found at:


If a paper has been selected for publication in LARS-SBR-2017, the authors of the paper have to submit a Copyright Form, necessary for the inclusion of the paper in the proceedings of the conference, published by IEEE. This conference uses the IEEE Electronic Copyright Service (eCF). In the following, you can find all the necessary information on how to properly submit a copyright form. Please note that all clearances for publication must be obtained by the authors. By filling in the form, you are stating that the material in your paper is original and you have not previously released copyright for this paper and/or its content to another party. The paper cannot be published in the proceedings if the form is not properly completed.

Please fill in the required information in the grey box below and click the “Copyright Submission” button. You will be redirected to the IEEE Copyright submission site and a wizard will guide you through the process. A traditional copyright form with signature is not requested as it is replaced with the web form.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the IEEE Copyright submission site returns the error “IEEE Electronic Copyright Form, Non-authorized Submission Site”, it means that you are behind a firewall or you are using a proxy server. In that case, the process will not work. Temporarily changing the firewall settings on your computer (allow communication for your web browser) may help.
