17th IEEE Latin American Robotics Symposium - LARS 2020

8th Brazilian Symposium of Robotics - SBR 2020

Virtual conference
The most important robotics conference of Latin America.

The IEEE LARS and SBR (Latin American Robotics Symposium/Brazilian Robotics Symposium) aim 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, Computer Engineering, and related fields.

The event will happen through technical sessions on the web, including oral (or video) presentations of full papers and webinars featuring technical lectures of recognized importance in the area (to be defined).

The LARS/SBR and its associated scientific events are the primary scientific/academic meetings of a larger event that brings relevant developments in robotics, named ROBĂ“TICA 2020. It also comprises the LARC/CBR (Latin American Robotics Competition / Brazilian Robotics Competition), OBR (Brazilian Robotics Olympiad), MNR (National Robotics Fair), besides the LARS/SBR, WRE (Workshop of Robotics in Education) and WTDR / CTDR (Workshop on MSc Dissertation and PhD Thesis in Robotics and Best MSc Dissertation and PhD Thesis Contest in Robotics ). For the first time in its history, the LARS/SBR and its associated events will be completely held as a Virtual Conference, from November 9th to 13th, 2020.

We are looking forward to (virtually) seeing you in LARS/SBR 2020.
