Call for Papers

CFP: Preliminary Call for Papers – LARS/SBR 2017

    Curitiba – Paraná – Brazil / November 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 6th to 11th, 2017.
We are looking forward to seeing you in LARS/SBR 2017.
