                 CFP - Call for Papers - IEEE LARS/SBR 2014

IEEE LARS'2014 - 11th Latin American Robotics Symposium
SBR'2014 - 2nd Brazilian Symposium on Robotics

October 18-23, 2014 - São Carlos-SP, Brazil

The LARS/SBR Robotics Symposium is part of the Joint Conference on Robotics
2014, and aims 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 and related areas. This symposium will be through technical
sessions of oral presentation of full papers, short papers presented as
posters, and technical lectures of recognized importance in the area. We
are looking forward to seeing you in LARS/SBR 2014.

The SBR was formerly known as the EnRI - Brazilian Intelligent Robotics
The LARS can be considered as the most important Latin American Robotics
Symposium. The LARS/SBR were also organized together in 2012 at
Fortaleza-CE (Brazil).

The LARS/SBR and Robocontrol are the three major scientific/academic events
on Robotics of the Joint Conference on Robotics and Intelligent Systems
Meeting (JCRIS2014). This conference, JCRIS2014, also covers the BRACIS
(Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems) and other important satellite
events, exhibitions and competitions.

Proceedings of the previous editions are available at IEEE XPlore Digital



Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 6 pages in standard
IEEE format including title, abstract, all tables, figures, and references.
Papers should present substantial new results in theoretical, empirical and
applied research related to the topics of the conference.
