2017 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics


December 5-8, 2017, Macau, China


Dear colleagues,

The IEEE-ROBIO 2017 (2017 IEEE Int. Conf. on Robotics and Biomimetics) conference will be held from Dec. 5 - Dec. 8, 2017, at The Parisian Macao, in Macau, China. Macau is an autonomous territory on the western side of the Pearl River Delta, China. Besides being best known as 'Oriental Las Vegas', Macau is extremely rich in attractions and bearing an interesting mix of Portuguese and Chinese cultures. Continuing with more than a decade of the ROBIO conferences??tradition, IEEE-ROBIO 2017 promises to be a great event for scholars, researchers, and developers working in robotics and biomimetics related fields - this year's conference will have world-class technical programs and attractive social-interaction events.

We are now inviting the submission of high quality original research and development papers in all areas related to robotics and biomimetics for review and then presentation at the conference. Please note the important deadlines below and visit the following conference website for details regarding the conference:
