Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite you to the Third International Conference on Cable-Driven Parallel Robots (CableCon 2017), which is to take place on August 2-4 2017, at Université Laval, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. The first two editions of this conference, held in Germany in 2012 and 2014, provided fruitful forums for discussions amongst the worldwide community of researchers working on cable robots. The third edition serves the same purpose, and we hope you will consider submitting your results on cable robots or simply attending the conference.

The official call for papers of the conference may be downloaded here: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__robot.gmc.ulaval.ca_fileadmin_documents_cablecon2017_CableCon-5F2017-5Fcall-2Dfor-2Dpapers-2Dfinal.pdf&d=DQIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rStC00sfV_qVWqlcnmGhKrRoTMim5rLso-FTzVW2NfNyo&m=xxSY6GVLQkjpPTocVnz5XDWT-sBsLUNK3_ZqqsDp_7c&s=SzB9-pvbq4r9ThgsjSmeQ_QabKfQEuYX8zYIK0S4ies&e= .
