General Information

Robot control technology is widely used for space, surgery, rehabilitation,
micro machine, entertainment, underwater, civil engineering, professional
and domestic services, security etc.  It will continue to play an increasing
role in the areas of robot-robot and human-robot cooperation in various
dynamic scenarios.  Contributions on basic research as well as on relevant
applications are included.  Organized by the Control, Automation and
Robotics Group (GCAR) of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul
(UFRGS), the IFAC SYROCO 2015 aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners working in the fields of control and robotics.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Haptic interaction
- Telemanipulation
- Micro/Nano manipulation
- Networked robots
- Robot control: adaptive, robust, learning
- Force and compliance control
- Multi-fingered hand control
- Multi-cooperative robot control
- Sensory based robot control
- Modeling and identification
- Mobile robots and vehicles
- Humanoid robots
- Aerial robots
- Advanced Applications: space, surgery, rehabilitation, entertainment,
underwater, civil engineering, security, professional and domestic services,
transport and delivery etc.

Papers: Papers describing original work are invited. The number of pages and
the file size must respect the following limits: 6 pages, 2 MB (up to two
additional pages are permitted at an extra charge of EUR 100 per additional
page).  More details, instructions and template files for IFAC papers can be
found at 
<http://www.ifac-control.org/events/information-for-ifac-authors>. All 
paper submissions should be carried out through the official conference
manuscript management system at <http://ifac.papercept.net/>.  The submitted
papers will go through a peer review process.  Accepted papers will be
included in the final symposium program provided that at least one of its
author completes a full registration fee by the deadline for submission of
the final version of the paper.

Invited Sessions: The program committee encourages the proposal of invited
sessions.  In each session, four or six papers will be presented, and these
papers must be original, unpublished papers.  The invited papers will be
reviewed through a regular review process.  An organizer will be added as a
member of International Program Committee and expected to handle invited
papers.  The invited person should also register with the same process of
regular sessions

The working language of the symposium is English.
