Call for papers


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 robotics developments, named ROBĂ“TICA 2021. That 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 Ph.D. Thesis in Robotics and Best MSc Dissertation and Ph.D. Thesis Contest in Robotics ). It will be a Virtual Conference from October 11th to 15th, 2021.


Papers must be written in English and must not exceed six (6) pages in standard IEEE format, including title, abstract, tables, figures, and references. Papers should present new solid results in theoretical, empirical, and applied research related to the conference topics. This year the reviewing process will be DOUBLE BLINDED, so authors must hide their names, contact information, acknowledgments, and any other reference in the text to where their research takes place.

Templates: (set to A4 format)



Accepted papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore. A selected number of outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a Special Issue of JINT (Journal of Intelligent & Robotics Systems), Impact factor 2.259.
