Robotica 2013 - 13th International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions

April 24-25, 2013

Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa (ISEL), Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal

Sponsored by:
- IEEE Robotics and Automation Society
- Portuguese Robotics Society

The 13th International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions is an international scientific meeting in the field of autonomous robotics and related areas, which will take place in conjunction with the 13th Portuguese Robotics Open, a RoboCup Local Event. The conference will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on April 24-25, 2013. Lisbon is the capital of Portugal, one of the oldest cities in the world with a pleasant subtropical-Mediterranean climate.

The conference has been growing continuously for the past decade and is nowadays a truly international forum attracting quality research papers
from worldwide. Its technical program is the result of a thorough review process.

Due to its growing prestige and impact, the conference proceedings will be indexed in IEEExplore and the conference has also already confirmed for
this 13th edition a **Special Issue of selected extended papers in the Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems** from Springer, indexed by the Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge (IF=0.83).
