*CARPI 2012
2nd IEEE International Conference on Applied Robotics for the Power 

September 11 -- 13, 2012
ETH Zurich, Switzerland


*Call for Papers*
The 2012 2nd IEEE International Conference on Applied Robotics for the 
Power Industry (CARPI 2012) is a three-day event that will bring 
together stakeholders interested in robotics applications in the power 
The program will include presentations of robotics solutions for 
construction, refurbishment, inspection and maintenance of power 
systems. R&D decision makers and robotics developers will have the 
chance to meet in a forum that allows them to share high-value 
solutions. The conference, expected to draw approximately 250 people 
from major organizations around the world, is intended for 
innovation-driven decision makers, system operators, end users, R&D 
development teams from electric utilities, research centres, 
manufacturers, universities and service providers.

*Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:*
Robotics applied to:
. Hydro, nuclear, thermal, wind and solar power generation systems
. Transmission lines and substations
. Underground and overhead distribution systems
. Underwater structures
. Construction, inspection, maintenance, refurbishment, security
Scope of contributions may be:
. UAV, ROV, mobile robotics, teleoperation, manipulator, automation, 
field robotics
. Utilities roadmap, field experience, benefits and implementation
. Design, simulation and prototype
. Sensor, vision, control

*Important Dates:*
February 10, 2012: Submission of 1000 words abstracts
Mars 30, 2012: Notification of acceptance
Mai 30, 2012: Submission of final contributions

. Papers. Submission with a 1000-word abstract. Upon abstract 
acceptance, the final contribution is a 4-6 pages paper in IEEE PES format
. Videos of 1.5 to 3 minutes presenting applications. Submission with a 
500-word synopsis describing the proposed video. Upon synopsis 
acceptance, the author must submit the video and a 2 pages paper in IEEE 
PES format.
