Call for Papers – LARS/SBR

IEEE LARS 2019 – 16th Latin American Robotics Symposium
SBR 2019 – 7th Brazilian Robotics Symposium

The IEEE 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 fields.

The event will include technical sessions of an oral presentation of full papers and technical lectures of recognized importance in the area. LARS/SBR will take place in Rio Grande, Ro Grande do Sul, Brazil from October 22 to 26, 2019.

We are looking forward to seeing you in LARS/SBR 2019.

IMPORTANT DATES

Paper registration/submission site open: April 30th, 2019
